Full description

Learn how to make an authentic Greek Moussaka dish and Spanakopita pie during this cooking class in Athens with a local chef. Get an authentic look at Greek cuisine, then enjoy a rooftop dinner and the views while enjoying your handmade meal.

Head to a kitchen just a few steps from Monastiraki Square in the funky neighborhood of Psirri. Meet your chef for the day on a rooftop terrace featuring unbeatable views of some of the best sights of Athens.

First, make two classic traditional pies: spinach and milk pie. Greek island-inspired salad with cherry tomatoes aromatized with aged local vinegar and Greek yogurt tzatziki sauce will also be on the menu.

Then, roll up your sleeves and start with your cooking preparations while chatting with the chef about Greek and Mediterranean cuisine. After getting introduced to the day's ingredients, the cooking class officially begins.

When the class is finished, take a seat and savor your food with views of the Acropolis monuments and Parthenon temple lit at night. Finish off your evening taking in the vivid center of Athens overlooking the dome of Aghios Dimitrios Church.

We had so much fun !! The chef Stam was great and informative while keeping it fun. It was all very organized, professional and the chef was quite charismatic and charming. I recommend it for couples, parents and children, friends and all. After you eat the food with the view of the acropolis which is amazing by itself.

We had a fantastic cooking class with Chef Fotis Paravas. My husband and I were the only two who had booked the 11AM class and since we were not able to reschedule the class was held as booked and turned out to be a private class. In addition to the wonderful recipes we prepared we also were given many tips & techniques to use. After enjoying the delicious food we prepared in the rooftop restaurant we were given a bag of extra goodies from our class which we enjoyed back at our hotel later on. Highly recommend this class.

We had a fantastic time at this cooking class! We learned a lot about Greek food and some new cooking techniques in general, and the food was truly phenomenal. Stam was a great instructor--fun, friendly, and engaging. And getting to eat all the delicious food we had cooked in such a beautiful location was a highlight of our trip to Greece. We would highly recommend this class for experienced and novice chefs alike!
