If you are in the Reythmo area you MUST make time for this experience! Androniki and her husband are amazing! The lessons make you feel like you are with good friends. The food we made and shared with them was DELICIOUS. We are already making Greek food at home. This is truly a must do experience!

Great experience and exceptional hosts! It was a small group of 6 and the hosts and their friend. LOTS of food prepared and it was a feast. Andronikis and her husband were wonderful and their home and gardens were very beautiful and cozy. We felt right at home and enjoyed the experience so much.

We had such a wonderful time with Androniki and her family. It’s really a one of a kind experience. Her backyard patio is beautiful and well setup for teaching the wonderful Cretan foods. My children of 16, 13 and 11 had a great time too. I highly recommend this for a beautiful evening overlooking Crete. You will also learn so much about Cretan cooking.

Very interesting workshop given by the adorable Androniki, assisted by her husband and a good friend, an adorable polyglot lady. I can ab-so-lutely advise to go to Loutra when staying in Crete, and follow this cooking workshop! And of course, the dinner after the workshop with our friends together with the hosts after it, was, marvelous! A must do when you love cooking, learning the Cretan cuisine, and you stay or are in the neighborhood!

I was a bit hesitant about booking this and "wasting" beach time but am so glad we did it. We are a family of 5. We ordered the vegetarian cooking class. We were welcomed by Androniki and her husband and her lovely neighbour who was also there to help translate even though Androniki's English is excellent. While we were preparing the food (stuffed vegetables, cheese, tzatziki etc.) her husband kept coming in with delicious food prepared in the outdoor oven. There were delicious pies and fried potato chips with oregano. The meal we ate there was the best we had eaten in Crete. They insisted on packing up the leftovers for us to take with us. We also went round the beautiful garden and Androniki explained about all the herbs and plants.By the time we left we felt they were like family. If you don't want to prepare the food yourselves you can just go there for the best meal you will eat on the island. It's an easy drive from Chania.

The cooking class with Androniki and her family and friends was the highlight of our trip to Crete.

I discovered her class from a 2017 Condé Nast article called “The Quieter Side is Crete.” She was responsive and very helpful when we requested to book via email.

My mom and I wanted to take part in the cooking while my husband and dad looked forward to taking part in eating of the cooking. Androniki said that was no problem. My dad and husband enjoyed sitting on their beautiful shaded patio and talking with Androniki’s husband as well as watching us cook. Androniki’s husband brought us several types of pies (homemade cheese, Horta, etc) made from her handmade phyllo. Sooo good!

The class itself was perfect. She did a lot of preparation before we arrived to ensure it went smoothly. No stress at all and she is very easy going. It was very pleasant to learn all about the Cretan dishes from her. We made so many different things!! Dolmades, Gemista, Meatballs in an avgolemino sauce, homemade sheep’s milk cheese, tsatsiki, and moussaka (her family recipe). THEN her husband brought out even more food that he had been preparing in their gorgeous traditional outdoor oven - pork shank with potatoes - and Greek salad. It was a FEAST! We all gathered around their outdoor dining area to eat. The best part of the class was truly their company, including a neighbor that joined us for the day.

If you love food and good company - you will love spending your day with them!!

Androniki is so kind and opens her home for you to enjoy. The cooking class is taught in her kitchen in her home where she teaches you to prepare traditional Crete dishes. She had a table prepared for us on her back patio to enjoy all of the foods we made and then some! We also toured her backyard garden and after lunch she and her friends taught us traditional dances. This was the best experience our whole trip to Greece.

My friends and I had such a great time, that we are still talking about it months later! Androniki was a great teacher and cook. She showed us around her garden, explained about local Cretan plants, how to make cheese, explained the moussaka process as we built it. The BEST moussaka ever, we ate it for breakfast the next day. Her husband cooked some yummy treats in the summer kitchen as well. It was a great meal with wonderful people and we had an absolute blast. I highly recommend it!

I booked the cooking experience at Andronikis together with my daughter and we had a really great time there. The reception was very warm and welcoming. Androniki is a fantastic cook and a very good teacher. She showed us how to prepare a delicious cretan meal which we afterwards enjoyed together in her beautifully decorated patio. I can absolutely recommend this experience and would surely book it again if I spent another holiday on Crete.
