Greek Small-Group Cooking Class in an Athens Tavern
From US$88.90
Learn the secrets behind your favorite Greek dishes with this 3-hour cooking class in Athens. Led by an expert instructor, step inside a traditional tavern, sip on a glass of raki and try your hand at four starters and one main course, using fresh, local ingredients. Then sit down to savor the fruits of your labor with your fellow chefs. Numbers are limited to 14 to keep the experience as intimate as possible.
What to Expect
Make your own way to central Athens, where you’ll join up with your host and walk over to a traditional Greek taverna. Meet your chef inside and begin the class with a glass of raki (twice-distilled Greek spirit) while chatting with your group mates.

The Greek diet is a classic example of Mediterranean cuisine, based on colorful foods from both land and sea. Dive right into the world of Greek cuisine with your chef, and learn about hearty stews, fresh shellfish and typical flavorings such as cinnamon, oregano and lemon.

Prepare an authentic meal under the guidance of your instructor, creating four appetizers and one main course, with plenty of fresh spices and herbs. While recipes tend to vary, expect to learn local favorites such as Greek salad, tzatziki, melitazanopitakia (eggplant pies) and roasted lamb.

After all of your hard work, sit down with your group to savor each of your dishes. Pair your menu with a complimentary glass of wine or a soft drink and chat with your fellow chefs while you eat. Your cooking class will conclude after the meal.

Awesome class

Booked 2 hours before class started. Teacher was knowledgeable and entertaining. Fast pace so we covered a lot of traditional dishes. Class lasted 3 1/2 hours and then we ate with live music. I would do again.

Cooking Class

Very good food, excellent restaurant staff dedicated to giving everyone a great experience. However, we felt some of the other people in our class were rude to our host and the other guests, maybe it's because of where they are from (England) and their mannerism...More
