About
Vioma means experience. The word Vioma comes from the verb vio or bio which means ‘to live’. It‘s the experience that we gain throughout our lives, which forms our character and gives in our daily life unique meaning. ‘Vioma’ provides experiences to whoever would like to immerse themselves in the Naxian way of life. On an island where history has aided in the formation of a wealthy and stable cultural infrastructure, our unique gastronomy and culture allow us to generously share our bounty with our friends. Cookery lessons, activities and cultural events will take place all year round in chosen areas of Naxos, enabling visitors to familiarize themselves with the island’s natural wealth and way of life.

Highlight of trip to Naxos was renting a car and driving about 20 minutes to a small town and meeting Katerina where she took us to her pristine family home where we cooked a fabulous meal under her guidance. Katerina is charming, full of information and an excellent cook. She is very organized and we had such a great time learning to cook a few great courses. Highly recommend!

Looking for something different to do we came across Vioma. Our small party of three all rated this cooking class immersion into Katerina’s kitchen as first rate and definitely our favourite activity during our stay.

All our communication with Katerina was thoughtful, swift and friendly, so much so, we felt like we knew her before we even met. It’s an easy bus ride from Naxos port and Katerina will warmly welcome you off the bus (ahem.. small communication error with our particular driver - but all good!). A short drive to her quaint village and home to meet her mum and over a coffee we decide on what today’s recipes will be.

This is a super fun hands on day. Katerina is an absolute delight as is her mum, and we gained confidence with our dough-making from scratch (always roll in one direction!) and whilst our crescent shaped cheese and salami pastries were not as elegant as Katerina’s, they did taste pretty good. The stuffed peppers and eggplant were fantastic but the star of the day, was the delicious cake. In fact, it was sooo good, we were wishing for it days after!

Our trio loved the time we spent with Katerina and recommend Vioma to you wholeheartedly. It is sensational value and enormous fun. We have many happy shared fun memories of our time with Katerina. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to visit Katerina in her small humble kitchen and truly experience Greek hospitality. We hope our paths cross again if we have another chance to visit Naxos.

My daughter and I were in Naxos for 3 days and wanted an authentic cooking experience. This was the highlight of our trip! Katerina is such a wonderful and gracious hostess—we literally felt like we enjoyed dinner at a friend’s home. And the food was amazing!! Eggplant stuffed with tomato and onions slowly caramelized, topped with local cheese, fresh local beef cooked in a tomato sauce with just a touch of cinnamon and allspice, pita and tzaziki, naxian Greek salad, and spanakopita. Everything was paired perfectly with local wines. We learned so much about local food grown in this area and could not be more appreciative of the experience Katerina provided.

I arrived in Naxos and thought I was quite unlucky to have rain for the next couple days. My hotel suggested I do this cooking class since the beach wasn't really an option, and I never thought I'd be thankful for such bad weather on vacation! Katerina and her mother taught me some traditional Greek dishes in their wonderful village that could be straight out of a movie. I enjoyed learning all about Greek food and culture, much more than I could have on a large bus tour. Katerina even took me on a distillery tour in the next village since we had time waiting for some of the dishes to finish cooking.

I highly recommend booking an experience with Vioma, you most definitely won't regret it.

My wife and I enjoyed a delightful time cooking with Katerina and her mother in their quaint home. Their warmth and friendliness made us feel at home in their kitchen. We enjoyed making stuffed zucchini and some homemade cheese and olives pies. Katerina was happy to answer all of our questions and told us much about the Naxos cuisine. She was a wealth of information about local cheese, and olive oils. We decided that this was our best experience on our 10 day Greece vacation! We'd highly recommend Katerina's cooking class.

Katerina and her mother are such warm and welcoming hosts. They invited us into their home and showed us how to cook some tasty dishes, all while chatting and laughing with us. And since it was Easter week, they even showed us how to color the red eggs that are traditional in Greece. This was definitely a highlight of our time on Naxos.

Katerina and her mom are wonderful. They prepared a menu of items we hadn’t yet eaten in Greece, items that moreover were local specialties made with recipes passed down from Katerina’s grandmother, who was known as the best cook in the village. Katerina speaks excellent English and the environment she and her mom create is warm and inviting. We loved talking and laughing with them. This was truly a special experience!

We felt like part of the family cooking a tradition Greek meal with Katrina and her Mama Maria. They welcomed us into their village home and customized the menu for our maximum enjoyment. I can’t wait to go back to Toronto and cook what I learned for my friends.

We had the pleasure of cooking with Katerina and her mother in their family home during our stay in Naxos. To say it was an enjoyable and memorable experience would be an understatement. From learning about the history of the charming village of Kaloxylos, to preparing a variety of authentic Greek dishes (each with a family twist), Katerina and her mom make you feel right at home, immediately. Come with an appetite, as you will prepare a large feast of tasty dishes! We felt extra lucky, as the annual village festival had taken place earlier in the day, and we were able to sample some of the authentic desserts and breads that the family had prepared as well. This was most definitely a highlight of our trip, and one of our favorite experiences we have had traveling, to-date. Highly recommend!
