Truly a highlight of my trip to Naxos. Anna is a wonderful host and her family tavern and farm is so beautiful and authentic. If you're considering this cooking class, don't hesitate - just book. We made a range of dishes, went for a lovely walk while they cooked and then sat down to enjoy the meal together. Just make sure that you have car or have a taxi booked!

Anna was a wonderful culinary guide. It was interesting to walk her family's property in this beautiful mountainous area on Naxos and see everything they grow. Our group was small and we enjoyed each other's company as we prepared two traditional vegetarian dishes with items we had picked just moments before.

This class was by far the highlight of our time in Naxos. We will never forget the experience of picking our own vegetables and cooking with Anna...or maybe we will forget a bit because of the flowing homemade wine ;) We loved the dishes we made, which she said rotate regularly, as well as all the side dishes Anna's mother provided to compliment our cooking. It was a true family affair and we appreciated the pride and hard work that the whole family puts into their Taverna. 10/10 recommend!
