cooking class

Hands-on, fun and filled with Greek flavour!

You've come to Greece and discovered just how amazing the food here is, so now you want to learn to cook these dishes and take them home with you; it's the ultimate travel gift to share with your friends and family and, of course, to remind you of your vacation in the Mediterranean!

All of our cooks are local and have mastered their skills with the knowledge handed down from generation to generation and now they are going to pass that on to you!

The class starts with a trip to Varvakious Market, the central market for Athens that's been providing Athenians with fresh produce from across Greece for more than 150 years. You'll visit the traders, check out what's in season and pick up some ingredients for your class: Don't worry, you'll get time to snap some photos while you're there!

Once back at The Greek Kitchen you'll enjoy a hands-on class led by your cook. Ask as many questions as you like, they love to chat and get to know all of our guests.

At the end of the cooking class your meal will be served, we'll pour you some wine and let you relax and enjoy your food while we take care of the dishes!
