Discover Greece’s culture through its delicious food. The best way to do that is by graduating from a hands-on cooking class. During this tour, you’ll learn how to cook traditional Greek dishes with a small group of fellow food lovers. Along the way, with the guidance of your experienced instructor, you’ll become familiar with the ingredients and the techniques that are the foundation of Greek cooking.
With a small group, you’ll work together to prepare a Greek Sunday dinner. You’ll take home the easy-to-follow recipes so you can host your own Greek dinner party back home.
The dinner typically includes the preparation of 3 to 4 starters, salad, a main dish and a dessert. Menus vary according to season as well as the fresh produce and meat available at the local market.
This cooking class starts at 17:30 (5:30 pm) and takes place daily.
Not only will you visit one of the oldest and most popular “tavernas” in all of Athens, but you will also be initiated into Maria’s cooking secrets with easy instructions and plenty of “hands on” preparation and cooking. But the best of all is the sumptuous dinner that you will have with the rest of your “classmates” at the end of the lesson.
The venue is the warm and traditional Klimataria tavern, owned by Maria and Periklis, famous for years among local Athenians for its delicious home style cooking.
Maria will welcome you with a small glass of “raki” which is a twice distilled drink made from grapes and is the perfect “ice breaker” for the newly introduced and a great courage booster for all amateur cooks who are about to be initiated into the fascinating world of Maria’s delicious cooking.
The hands on cooking course includes 4 starters and a main course. And the best part, after you have successfully prepared a meal fit for a king under the constant guidance of Maria, at the end of the course is enjoying the meal you have helped to prepare with a glass of wine.
Get to know the wonderful world of Mediterranean cuisine; the herbs, the fresh vegetables, the choice meats that we always use and learn the basics on how to prepare a full Greek Sunday dinner with easy to follow recipes.
The meeting point is at 5:30 pm outside the central Monastiraki metro station underneath the ATHENS FLEA MARKET sign. Our office representative will be waiting for you there holding in his hands an orange colored Athens Walking Tours sign to identify him/her.
Note please there are two Monastiraki metro exits one of them is on Athenas Road and the other one, the central Monastiraki metro exit, is the one facing the square right underneath the ATHENS FLEA MARKET sign. This is the exit where we meet.
