About
Cook with Eleni culinary experience translates into a lovingly prepared meal that will hopefully be successful, tasty and meets the needs of those who enjoy it. You will ultimately find purpose, fulfillment and joy that comes from following your cooking passion. I organize and offer specialized culinary seminars, market-tasting tours, winery and traditional cheese factory visits throughout Greece. I organize culinary tours that expose my visitors to the everyday, rustic and simple way of preparing food for your family and friends. Our cooking sessions usually start with a visit at a local 'al-fresco' vegetable market, where we will load our bags and straight head to the kitchen. Our hands-on session is planned around a traditional Greek meal as we will enjoy the fruits of our cooking labor around the table in lovely and warm fellowship.

My wife and I enjoyed our Culinary Walk Through Athens with Eleni. She is full of interesting information and knows the city's culinary destinations like the back of her hand. She has a true love/passion for cooking and is eager to share it with others. She considers the giving of tours and cooking classes as a treat to herself.

If you have any interest authentic Greek cooking and the Athens food scene, do yourself a favor and hire Eleni.

We were met by Eleni at the local farmers market where we selected our fresh fish and vegetables for the meal we would prepare. We then went to a beautiful cooking studio, with loads of space, and a lovely helping staff were we began to cook together. She didn't just cook for us, but taught us how to prepare meals while helping us out.
Eleni was patient with our children and showed them how to prepare simple dishes, and most importantly explained the importance of food and how it is important for our family to prepare and eat as a unit.

I could not recommend this activity more! We'll definitely do it again when we're touring the islands next time.

Thank you Eleni!

We took the cooking class not knowing what to expect. Eleni welcomed us into her home as if we were long lost friends. The class was amazing. She catered the menu to our tastes and desires and paired it with local wines. She even had her son, who is a sommelier at a high end Restaurant help with the wine pairing. Afterwards, we sat and enjoyed the food (and wines) with Eleni and her family. On a scale between 1 and 10 (10 being the highest), the class was a 15! I would recommend this class to anyone who enjoys cooking or wants to learn more about greek food and cooking. It was truly one of the highlights of our trips and would not go to Athens again without taking another class with Eleni.

Eleni has a heart for good Greek food and cooks a very good lamb dish. Unfortunately she took on too many people (10) and as a result invited us to a kitchen that she did not know. We were shown a few Greek classics and tasted one wine. The kitchen was a difficult place to find and we were given poor instructions.The kitchen had sufficient equipment but she had not thought how to use it effectively to involve all the people present. We have expressed these concerns to her in an email before posting this review. I think she is likely to be more at ease with a few people cooked for in her own home. The experience seemed unplanned and a bit of an experiment which resulted in us feeling that it was significantly overpriced.
