Overview

Greece is famous for so many great reasons: Friendly people, beautiful nature, stunning landscapes and of course, amazing food!

We are so spoilt here with amazing produce, filled with flavour and always fresh as we enjoy it when it's in season!

Food is an important aspect of travel, and one of the things that people remember the most about their time abroad. Why not make it an even bigger part of your vacation and enjoy the experience of making excellent, tasty dishes that you can enjoy again and again at home meaning you'll always have something to remember your time here in Greece forever!

Description

The Greek Kitchen is the little foodie space in Athens. Our team of local, home cooks are here to take care of you and make sure you have fun from the moment you arrive!

Start the experience at The Greek Kitchen; it's a handy place to leave anything you don't want to carry to the market.

Head to Varvakios Agora, the central produce market in Athens, here you cook will take you on a shopping walk to pick up ingredients, meet some of the local traders and discover a few places you might not have already seen! It's not a tour of the market, but it's still an experience!

Back at The Greek Kitchen the hands-on experience will begin and you will be involved in the preparation of your dishes.

Your meal will be served with a serving of local organic wine and a shot of Greek digestive liquor.

End your time with us with a chance to relax, enjoy a drink with your food and let us take care of the dishes.

We are happy to cater to your dietary needs, please contact us using the messaging feature as soon as possible to let us know in advance as we can't do anything at the last minute.

This was such a fun experience. Thanos was a great instructor and the food was great. Very fun and unique Greek foods to try. By the time you're done cooking there will be a feast and you won't walk away hungry.
