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.

This was such a unique and authentic experience. Katerina and her mom were such welcoming hosts and taught us some amazing recipes that we will be sharing with our own friends and family. And you get to visit and walk around a very traditional tiny village in the mountains as an added bonus. We’ve done cooking classes in other counties, but this was the best one ever by far. Can’t recommend it enough.

I cannot say enough nice things about this experience! After a 7 day trip traveling Greece, my sister and I both agreed that this was by far our favorite part of the entire vacation. Our hostess and her mother were the definition of hospitable and welcoming, and you can tell that they truly love what they do! The food was delicious, and they made sure to take into account any food allergies or restrictions. The town they live in was beautiful and peaceful, the class was modified for any all cooking experience levels. We learned so much about Greek culture, it was an amazing evening. If you find yourself in Naxos, make attending this class a priority!

Absolutely wonderful experience. My daughter loved the hands on cooking experience and exploring the village while stuff cooked. The food was fun to make and delicious to eat. Katerina and her mom were wonderful to meet and talk with, giving us tons of useful information about Naxos and key places to visit. We would absolutely do it again if we are ever back on Naxos.
