En detail

Forget the chef’s hats - in their own kitchens, your instructors will show you just how traditional Greek dishes are made right at home, where real cooking happens. You might find out how to make spanakopita (spinach pie), for instance, a snack that’s as tasty as it is fun to put together, or learn to master ravani, a sweet semolina cake that may quickly become your favorite dessert. Whatever you make, it will be authentic, made with fresh ingredients sourced as locally as possible, and you’ll be right up to your elbows in it!

You’ll discover techniques as well as recipes, and you’ll hear, too, the story of each dish – where it comes from and what it means to the family of the cook that’s teaching you. Don’t forget that nearly all the cooks in Greece are home-taught, and culinary wisdom is passed down from generation to generation. On the other hand, each cook is different as well, so you’ll also find out how tastes and dishes have evolved over time. Then, once all the cooking and the teaching are over, you’ll get to eat everything you’ve made, in a start-to-finish experience that’s miles apart from ordering this meal at a restaurant.

These recipes are easy to learn and don’t involve any restaurant-caliber equipment or rare ingredients, so you’ll have no problem replicating them yourself back at home. Your cooks will also share helpful kitchen tips and explain variations on the dishes as well.

This is not cooking under pressure; instead, it’s a relaxed introduction to Greek cuisinethat works whether you’re an occasional cook or an aspiring chef. It’s also a great chance to see another aspect of Greek society – in Greece, the kitchen is the heart of every house, and probably half of all daily conversations between friends or family begin with: “What are you having for dinner?” This means that with this lesson, as well as learning recipes, you’ll learn a little more about the national character, too.

"We went to beautiful places, historic places, trendy places. It was a great experience. It was much more then just bar hopping. It was having drinks with your Greek friend."

"Tour was awesome! Nice and intimate and Nikos was an awesome guide. So much knowledge about the city and street art and food!! Highly recommended :-)"

Colette

"We learned a lot about Athens life and Greek history while enjoying some delicious drinks. Antonis takes you to places that you would only know about from a local. We can not recommend it enough!!"
