We had a great time cooking with Thanos. He was funny and entertaining, and made the recipes both simple and fun.
The visit to the food market was informative, and the food we made was excellent.

Amazing Cooking Class!!!
Sep 2021
We had 11 of us do the private cooking class at the Greek Kitchen and we LOVED our 2 chefs that worked with us. They were so funny and made us all laugh and enjoy ourselves. The 5-course meal we prepared was SO GOOD. It was everyone's favorite part of our trip to Greece. I also want to thank the owner, Stephen, for having great communication and arranging the class for us. All around a great experience!!

Great cooking experience!
Sep 2021
This class I took was amazing and Thanos was an excellent teacher!! I enjoyed seeing and touring the local market as well as purchasing food product for the class there. We learned how to make 5 Greek food items and everyone of them were delicious. Thanos' teaching was easy to follow and he made it fun with stories of the dishes. I enjoyed that we all helped prepare it and then go to enjoy eating together. I would highly recommend this class to anyone wanting a fun afternoon and to learn Greek cuisine.

Highlight of visit to Athens!
Vasia , the teacher, was absolutely delightful. Her tour of the food market and demonstration of cooking techniques were very instructional. She made each person feel comfortable in her kitchen. The resulting meal was delicious!

Highly recommend -- Excellent cooking class with market tour
Sep 2021
The three of us had a great experience at The Greek Kitchen! Unexpectedly, we were the only ones in the class that afternoon which provided us with ample opportunity to ask lots of questions.
Not only did we get to cook familiar traditional Greek dishes such as dolmathes but also a dish new to us namely imam bialdi. The tour of the market beforehand was an added experience in itself. At one point we even ended up picking up ingredients for one of our planned dishes. Our instructor Vasia provided us with some history and tips during the class which added to the learning experience. I highly recommend The Greek Kitchen for anyone interested wishing to get a taste of classic Greek dishes.
As a note the kitchen was very organized and clean with all precautions being taken during these Covid times.
