Full description
Onion Athens is a place where learning to cook traditional four-course Greek recipes takes a different approach. The focus is on learning by doing, using what you have, what’s in season, and most importantly, by following true, traditional recipes the way Greek mothers and grandmothers did in times gone by.

This is truly a hands-on cooking experience combined with a fun dinner party environment - just like getting an invitation from a local Greek friend! You will have a Greek coffee with lukumi with friends in the morning and take a quick walk around Monastiraki area, before heading to the Athens Central Market to choose fresh ingredients. You will then be greeted with ouzo and meze, and enjoy the meal you cooked with great Greek wine, and, of course, the sounds of Greek music.

The small class size means it is a truly hands-on event, and means you get to cook and eat each and every item. Each class includes a four course meal, ouzo and wine, and  meal will close with a Mastich liquor and Greek yogurt and honey.
