Excellent afternoon full of authentic Greek experiences. Beginning with a trip to the market to buy some ingredients peppered with lots of history, information and knowledge by Thanos our excellent guide and chef!! Back to the kitchen for a communal cooking experience of some Greek classics again with lots of local knowledge, information about the dishes and ingredients and some excellent cookery tips. A total of 5 different dishes created, great fun had with the group we were joined with and a culmination of a tasty meal of our handiwork with some beautiful ingredients and wine.

The Greek Kitchen was a fun place to have a cooking class. right by the Central Market which allowed us to have a little tour of it and Varis was an excellent teacher. we made stuffed vine leaves, spinach pie, tzatziki and an eggplant dish with orange pie as dessert. all the dishes were fairly easy and we had good conversation while cooking and eating. probably my favorite type of tour to do during travels.

The experience was great, I can totally recommend it. Vasiliki (hopefully pronounced it correctly) our host was awesome, she explained everything very well and was very funny. The food was very good and absolutely enough (the left over we could take home). Totally recommend it!

A very kind and welcoming experience with a homely and comfortable environment created by a great host. Would highly recommend to anyone!

it was definitely one of my greatest experience in Athens. Recommend taking it
