    What a super fun experience. From being picked up by Yiannis, a man with an incredible treasure trove of information on all things Crete, to the hosts in Melidoni — it was a perfect day. The food preparation was fun — dakos, gemista, spinach and cheese hand pies, tzatziki. We were treated to a wine tasting with nibbles, and we sampled raki. We learned about country life and saw beautiful scenery in the White Mountains. Then it was time for our feast, and what a feast it was!! We all received parting gifts of raki and homemade olive oil soap. Just a lovely day. And don’t forget….you can never add too much olive oil!

    Absolutely 100% worth it! This experience is something I will never forget. Marianna was an amazing teacher along with Stella! Marianna was kind and funny and so knowledgeable. The food we made was the best meal I had while in Crete! The location of the farm was stunning and so beautiful. Getting to cook outside on their farm was wonderful. My husband had a blast and it was such an amazing way to connect. The people in our class were great as well which I think really helped the overall vibe. Everyone was laughing and having a great time! Thank you so much to Marianna for an experience I will cherish forever ❤️

    This was a fantastic experience for my family. My 10 year old daughter was fully involved, and my 70 year old aunt was learning new things! The chefs were fantastic and the place is adorable! Highly recommend!

    Definitely a highlight of our trip. Vincent was very knowledgeable about the local area and was very entertaining. Rebecca was also wonderful and it was super awesome to get to have some of her homemade raki and baked goods during the class. The food was excellent and it was a very fun time. Highly recommend!

    We booked this tour at the last minute and were delighted when the operator agreed to start a bit early so we could catch our flight that was leaving out of Heraklion at 5 PM. When we arrived, the outside of the Cretan village did not look like much, but once we went inside it was truly magical. Our guide and teacher, Vicky, first took us on a tour of the village and museum, showing us what it was like to exist as either a poor farmer or wealthy farmer in a traditional Cretan village. This was so interesting and insightful, and I was glad we got to see the museum and learn about the local culture and traditions before learning to cook. We also toured an artist's shop (we came back later and bought some of her delightful mosaics) before starting our cooking lessons. The cooking lessons were so much fun. We were a group of three friends on a girls' trip, so this was a perfect excursion. We learned to make tzatziki sauce, an appetizer called dakos, some dolmas (which in Greece are sooo much better than in the US), two main dishes - one lamb and one chicken, a desert (cheese pie - which is fried philo dough with feta), and Greek coffee! While they were finishing up the cooking, we were served appetizers of bread, cheese, olives, wine, lemonade and Raki. Most of what we prepared was then served to us for lunch and we got to enjoy the beautiful views of the valley while chatting and relaxing. We also got a cooking school certificate and recipe book to take with us, which was very nice. I would definitely recommend this tour! Vicky was so sweet and made sure we had a great time!

    What a wonderful tour and tasting! Quite interesting and informative — just the right amount of time. The generous bread, cheese, fruit, and herb tray with the different oil combinations was delicious! From the warm welcome with water bottles to the end of the tour and the little shop, our hosts provided quite a lovely treat!

    Had a very warm welcomee from the moment we were picked up through to being dropped off at the end of the evening.

    The lessons we done is a informative and fun way that was easy to follow.

    Have pick up some new recipes to add to my list of meals I can prepare and cook.

    Location was lovely and being located by the sea added to the experience even more.

    If you are looking for some dodo to do on holiday that the usual tourist day trips I would recommend doing this course.

    Not only is it an experience you can share with friends and family it is one souvenir that will not take up any space in your suite case and will last a long time.

    To finish off you get to enjoy the food you have cooked while enjoying the sea view

    The cooking experience with Mary was fantastic, she was an excellent host and the food was delicious. We would particularly recommend the evening experience as the view and sunset from the terrace was spectacular.
    Mary was very passionate about Cretan cooking but she was also very knowledgeable about Cretan history and culture. We could have sat and chatted with her over a glass of Raki for hours!!

    Marianna and her mother were so kind!! I loved cooking with them. It was great learning how to make authentic Cretan food! And it was delicious! We even made and tried snails for the first time. Marianna got us out of our comfort zone and it was a positive surprise! Snails are actually quite delicious!! Who would’ve thought?! Haha. The evening was wonderful and we still talk and look back on a great activity we did in Crete! If you want to taste, but also make authentic delicious food? Book here!!! You won’t regret it!
