Simply marvelous

This class was so much fun. Best thing I have done in a long time aside from coming to this beautiful country. Adonis was amazing. She was a great teacher and explained a lot about food and the culture. We went to the central market and she stopped to explain things along the way. This was a last minute idea and couldn't be more pleased. Thank you Adonis for the great time and marvelous food. Spanakopita is one of my favorite foods and was so much fun to make it myself. I would have uploaded pictures but my internet is spotty

The class was fun, the food was good, no recipes as promised. The website asks for food allergies and we filled it out. When we got there several weeks later the cook had never seen our input.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Hiya. The recipes are all on the website as you’d have been told in the class. If you’d asked we’d have helped you find them. Unfortunately Trip Advisor doesn’t tell us your dietary needs so we ask you to message them to us, it’s at that point we enter them in the schedule. I know for a fact that you didn’t miss out on anything as we still provided the correct ingredients but I guess if it makes you feel better about yourself to moan then you go ahead and live that life Catherine xxx

Thanos was great. From walking through the markets, to learning the recipes, to cooking and eating, and hearing the stories of the role food plays in Greek culture and families - we learned so much and had a great time. Would highly recommend.

The day at The Greek Kitchen was one of the best things I've done in Greece, and I come every year. Clear directions to get there; a teacher who was professional and funny, clear and kind. I brought my 14-year-old grandson and can't recommend the place and the atmosphere enough - thank you, Greek Kitchen1

Thank you for this fabulous review Mary! One of the great things about cooking is that it brings people of all ages together and that there is a delicious meal to enjoy at the end of the class as well! We are so happy when we hear such great feedback about our cooks! Thank you!

Our experience at The Greek Kitchen did not disappoint. We booked 30 min before the start time and so glad we did. Vasia is playful, engaging, knowledgeable. Not only did we learn how to make home cooked Greek dishes but also a lot of history about the origin of the dishes, explanations about the ingredients and hands on cutting, chopping, mixing and stirring. The kitchen was very clean and we adhered to Covid protocol. Even though our group was from different countries, Vasia brought us all together in conversation. Our meal was delicious and I can truly say I will be able to replicate it again. Vasia was also very kind to give us shopping recommendations from food items to souvenirs as not to get stuck in the tourist trap. It was so much fun, had there been a second menu, I would have booked again another day!!!

Hello and thank you for leaving this wonderful review! We are so proud of the work that Vasia does, she's pretty much one of the best at it and when we get such great feedback from our students about their time with us we are so happy!
