    What a privilege to spend the day with Anna in her home sharing her authentic experiences of family Greek cooking. Our menu was spot on all seasonal ingredients from the local market. I definitely recommend her cooking course to anyone who wants a genuine unique experience of family cooking and traditions.

    This was one of our favorite activities on our vacation. While we have done cooking classes in other cities, this experience was different and very personalized. We went to the local markets and then went to Anna's home to cook. The menu was personalized to our own taste and the food was incredible!!! She also shared so many basic tips to simplify what formal recipe books make difficult. I would highly recommend this activity.
