My mission is to make your culinary experience unforgettable by discovering local culture through gastronomy. You are welcome in my house where I will show you what Greek hospitality means. I will show you how to cook healthy, traditional Greek dishes and you will experience real Greek home-cooked food, everything cooked from scratch, using the freshest ingredients available, all cooked using extra virgin olive oil. We can arrange to pick you up from Nafplion or other nearby destination and take you back to your hotel.
