We thoroughly enjoyed our cooking class with Stamatis. He was engaging and he made the process simple while giving us facts and history about Greek cooking and ingredients. Everyone in the class was friendly and enjoying themselves. And above all, the dinner we prepared was tasty and fulfilling. Highly recommend!

My friend and I will have this wonderful experience to bring back home and share it with our family. Chef Stam is an amazing teacher so generous and calm, not only showing the techniques of Greek cuisine but the history behind it. Eating our creations for dinner after with Stam and our classmates coming from all different places added to the expérience. This will be part of the stories we tell when we talk about our vacation. Thank you so much.

This was an absolutely fantastic experience. Stam our chef was so lovely, gave us loads of tips and got us all involved in prepping our food. There was so much, it didn't seem like it but by the time we had eaten the spinach pie, salad, and tzatziki by the Mousakka we was all stuffed. Not many of us were able to eat the milk pie because we were so full. The food was absolutely delicious and I can't wait to replicate it all now we're home. The dinner we had overlooking the Acropolis was beautiful, the view was stunning and we had such a lovely group of people, while eating and drinking we had wonderful evening of chat and laughter. One of the loveliest trips we've done on our many travels.

We did this one of the first nights there and Stam was our chef! He is absolutely incredible and made the whole experience that much better. We had a smaller class and I actually really liked that because you got to know everyone a little better and great conversation. The food was delicious and easy to accommodate dietary restrictions (we don't eat meat). The location was beautiful and had great views as well! This was such a great way to spend one of our evenings in Athens and would love to do it again!

This was an amazing and tremendously fun activity- and i am not even someone who enjoys cooking! (My daughter talked me into it.) The chef - Stam - makes it very fun and educational at the same time. He is not only extremely knowledgeable and talented, but hs is so well-organized that the class flows without any wasted time. This class is well worth the fee, especially considering that it includes a full meal with a glass of wine. Added benefits - you learn about the Greek culture through food and we made some lasting friendships with others in the class. Though i hesitated to believe that there could be such a magnificent view of the Acropolis, believe it - it was lovely. Also, do not be put off by the "rough" look of the graffiti-filled neighborhood. It is a popular area of Athens, and the hotel where the class takes place is clean and new. If you have time, thus is a fantastic experience - Stam is a wonderful, charming, talented and hard-working young man!

Hello. Thank you very much for your feedback. We are happy you enjoyed the cooking class. We asked you for an email to send you the recipes. Unfortunately, we could not read your letters properly so despite we send you an email, it came back as undelivered. The area of the cooking class is fully AC

This was definitely the best meal of our trip! We cooked five dishes- spanakopita, moussaka, tzatziki, Agean salad, and galaktoboureko. Chef Sam ensured everyone had a chance to be front-and-center for cooking, while we all participated in chopping vegetables, and rolling our own dough. Everything turned out delicious. The view of the Acropolis was good, but the overall atmosphere topped even that! I highly recommend this for anyone looking for something beyond the typical "tourist" experience.

Lovely experience! Stam, our chef, was wonderful. He was warm, friendly, and knowledgeable. The venue is perfect, spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed meeting the other participants. Making the food was fun and educational. (We were hungry when we arrived, so my only suggestion would be to have some appetizers available at the beginning of the session.) The dinner atmosphere was festive and intimate. The food was amazing and plentiful. Highly recommend!
