It was an amazing tour of the market. The class was fun, varied, very interesting and entertaining. It was a pleasure to ‘break bread’ with a diverse small group of people from all over the world. The cooking experience was enough of a challenge enticing us to prepare more Greek dishes in the future. Thank you for a memorable adventure in the realm of Grecian cuisine.

One of our best activities in Athens! It was such fun to walk through the market and learn about the different meats, fish, vegetables, olives, etc. Then to cook authentic Greek recipes was a real treat--we are now so inspired to try them at home. Our chefs were exceptional--answered any questions, made us laugh, inspired us, taught us. My daughter is gluten and dairy free, and they readily catered to her: modifying the recipes to accommodate us. And they did it with seemingly no effort.

Vasia was a great cooking instructor and made the class a lot of fun. My wife and I were put with 3 other couples who were all very nice. Everyone wore masks when not eating so it was quite safe. We had a good trip to the market where we picked up the ingredients for the dinner, and saw lots of chickens, lamb, beef, fish, vegetables, and spices. That was very interesting. Then we went back to the cooking school where we all participated in learning how to cook dolmades, spanikopita, tsisiki, and orange pie. Wine was served during the cooking and during the eating. It was all delicious. And we got the link to her all the recipes to use at home. Excellent experience!
