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.

Amazing! Thanos, our culinary guide, met us at the cooking school and took us through the market. He is extremely knowledgable and shares his knowledge in a fun and interesting manner. Afterwards we retuned to the school where we talked, chopped, peeled, cooked and drank, while listening to wonderful Greek music and hearing stories of the history and origins of the food we were preparing from our wonderful guide. We then sat down to eat what we made - which was delicious, raise a toast with traditional spirits, and enjoy each others company. We were a group of 7 family members and there were 3 others. All ages and different nationalities. We all had a great time and I would highly recommend this activity. It’s a great way to immerse yourself in the culture, learn some history of the cuisine and have a fun time doing it!

I definitely recommend it. A trip around the market before cooking very interesting and showing where you can get good local products, but nothing compared to the cooking itself, which was great and the final dishes (as many as 5!) Were delicious Intimate and in a pleasant atmosphere with a division of responsibilities. We will use the dishes perfectly explained with their origins and some kitchen tips even when cooking our local food. It's definitely worth it
