Full description
Many people believe that in order to know a place well you need to know its everyday life. Inviting you to the home in Kaloxylos, the locals prepare a typical Greek meal. You become part of the local life and experience the village way of living. The menu depends, each time, upon your personal preferences, the season and, of, course, what is growing in the village's gardens. Vegetables, dairy products, meat, olive oil and herbs are the main ingredients. Based on traditional recipes you learn how to add a personal family touch and you are ready.  You will cook and enjoy a meal in a traditional house in the center of the village, which is often an attraction for other residents who will welcome you too. The four-hour experience includes cooking and eating traditional Naxos foods.

Once in a lifetime experience. Katerina and her Mom treated us just like family and the food we prepared was some of the best we had in Greece. I would highly recommend this experience and if Naxos wasn’t on your lists of islands to visit you should add it. The island is beautiful and the people of Naxos, are warm and inviting.

Our family enjoyed a wonderful cooking experience with Katerina, and I highly recommend this to anyone. She was kind, informative and hosted our family in her lovely home. We had a great introduction to Greek cuisine, and the meal was excellent! Our three teenage kids had a blast as well!

A wonderful experience!

We ended up doing the food tour, not the cooking class and Katarina was very accommodating and helpful. The food tour was wonderful to learn about the cheeses and dishes of Naxos which you eat along the tour. Katarina explains some of the islands history through the tour. We were treated to a dessert of our choice at the end of the tour. Katarina is very pleasant and makes the evening relaxed and very enjoyable!
