A small cooking school and foodie tour company in the heart of Athens! We want to get you closer to the good food, learn the secrets that make Greek home cooking one of the best in the world and share our stories with you about the products from the city that we love!
No table in Greece is set unless there is a serving of fresh bread on the table. But special occasions need an extraordinary bread - olive bread or eliopsomo.
A delicious and healthy choice ma...
Join our cook Vasia for an unforgettable cooking experience at The Greek Kitchen. Learning to cook at an early age, this Athens-born food lover has been putting together multiple-course me...
Excellent experience. Hands on cooking with great results. Thoroughly enjoyed
Lots of prep work, little real hands on cooking. The food was good. We feel like the class size limited our contribution to the dishes. The resulting dishes were tasty! Vasia did a good job. We really enjoyed the market tour.
We actually spent the entire time in preparing each course and then, eating it. It was a complete hands-on experience. We take classes in every country that we visit and in most cases we find the classes to be "instructional". This was an actual hands-on course with a knowledgeable instructor. We enjoyed it.
Really nice way to spend a few hours, meet people and eat yummy food.
Had lots of fun, learnt about the culture, great time meeting local shop owners, loved the cooking experience. Our stomachs were filled not just with the food but the love & joy we experience. Thank you
Cooking teacher was terrific. Enjoyed going to the market and the teacher’s commentary was both informative and entertaining. The dishes we prepared were delicious, especially considering that they were not dishes I particularly liked at home in the US. We are planning to recreate the meal when we get home. Overall a great experience!
It is more than I expected. Well organized; everyone get to share in the preparation of the meals. Food was good, took my left over back to the hotel for snack later on. Generous portion. I (and it seemed the rest also) enjoyed her relax and fun demeanors. Hope she will be able to fulfill her dreams of visiting New York someday and teach Greek cooking.
My wife and I had a tremendously wonderful cooking experience. We really learned how to cook some fabulous Greek dishes, including Moussaka, fava beans, spinach pie, and orange pie. The Yogurt based salad dressing was amazing. The chef was engaging and fun. The price was worth it just for the food. We ate a big dinner and took home enough for another big dinner. The walk through the market was informative and so necessary for me to learn the best places to shop since I am spending three months here. Could not be more pleased with the experience.
My niece and I thoroughly enjoyed the market walk and the cooking class. There were only 4 of us in the class, so we all had an opportunity to participate in making a whole meal. Lots of fun!
Vasia gave us a good balance of fun but also hands on activities. The meal was good with new tasting experiences. Maybe some greek music on the background could add some extra to the atmosphere. Overall a good price to value experience.
We had an absolutely wonderful time with Nick. It was a very fun and engaging class. We really liked that it was very laid back (he was not expecting Iron Chefs or Bobby Flays), engaging and fun. We had a group of people from around the world and everyone had a great time. We started out with a tour of the local markets (deli, cheese, meat, and vegetable) then back to the classroom. He explained HOW Greek food was made and the little hints and tricks to make it "like Grandma did". Motivational cheese breaks and lots of wine kept the class ..interesting. We all sat down at the end and had a HUGE meal (you eat everything you cooked! AND... more wine!). Then he sat down and asked us what recipes we wanted and he emailed them to us! We had a really, really good time.
I learned so much about Greek cooking during the class and I had so much fun doing it! The instructor, Vasia, really made the class for me because she had such a great sense of humor and kept us all laughing throughout the class! I learned a lot and the food was delicious! I am looking forward to re-creating the feast for my friends in my own home. Thank you for a wonderful experience during my stay in Athens! I highly recommend this class.
I really enjoyed my class with sweet Pigi. I was the only student, which I really appreciated as I realise many classes would have cancelled if this were the case. The class was really relaxing, taking place out on a little cute terrace leading off from the kitchen area, which was a great size for an intimate class. Pigi was very clear, friendly and helpful in her approach. It was my first time attending any kind of baking class and it has given me the confidence I need to practice at home and also to look for more experiences. The food we prepared was delicious ( thanks to Pigi's skills!) and I had lots of treats to take home and share with my husband, who was very happy :) I'm actually surprised how much we made in 3 hours and really look forward to making them again at home. I also got to try some lovely 'mountain tea' when the baking was happening and I tried grape molasses for the first time. I will certainly return when i visit Athens again in the future for more tasty delights! Thank you again!
The market was was informative and helpful. We had a four course meal that was seasonal and delicious. Vasili was an outstanding teacher. The feast with our fellow classmates was a fun culmination!
We learned a lot about Greek baking. Dimitris was a fantastic teacher. We enjoyed the variety of bread we made.
Really enjoyed this class excellent instructor who really knew what she was speaking about. Very hands on and that’s exactly what I was hoping for. Enjoyed it so much we booked another class for the same week.
The class was only 2 students and was excellent. The teacher was very warm and obviously loved cooking and imparting her knowledge to us.
