Full description
Discover how to make traditional Greek food on a 4-hour cooking class, including a tour of a local market. Start your day at meeting point, where you’ll meet the chef. Then head to the market to pick up some ingredients and discover hidden places to eat, drink, and shop in the area. Your cook will show you some of the more interesting and unique products on offer, and give you tips on how to use them. Back at the cooking studio, you’ll be shown how to prepare the food and enjoy a hands-on experience making various dishes yourself. The course has been designed to be simple enough for any cook, no matter the skill level.  When the cooking class is over, you can sit down with your classmates and chef to taste what you have created.

We had the best time with our chef Thanos (I hope I spelled his name right?). From shopping at the market to preparing and eating the amazing food. Highly recommend as you get a feel for the city in a different way. The stories that go along with the food make it that much more enjoyable.

We had a great time in our cooking class. Our cooking instructor was warm and friendly, taught us about the marked and just had a lovely conversation. The food we prepared turned out amazing and there was so much left, we took it home and had dinner using the leftovers. I would definitely recommend it, it's a great way to spend 4 hours on Athens, especially if you already know the city and are looking for a new experience.

We had a wonderful time at this cooking class! The market trip was very fun and felt like an authentic Greek experience. The food was excellent, as well as the instruction. Everybody contributed to the meal by chopping, stirring, mashing, and manning the stove. Our instructor was well-informed, clear, and very kind. My kids (aged 12 and 15) enjoyed the session too and it was clear that the class was open to people of all ages, as long as they could do basic cooking skills (chopping, stirring, and the like). Overall an excellent class that I would recommend to any Athens travelers.
