It was a delight to spend time learning how to cook food with Mrs Koula. I can strongly recommend this also to families. Our children also got involved and enjoyed the evening very much.

This was a fantastic experience, Vicki was wonderful at engaging everyone in the cooking. The setting is very rustic, the food was delicious and the local wine and raki just added to the fun. Be prepared to be very full, so wear loose clothing!
