This is the best activity we did in Greece. Sophia, our teacher, was phenomenal! The cooking was divided amongst the group, so depending on skill level, you could easily do what was needed to make the food. And the food! It was SO good. We also had the pleasure of trying a few wines with a sommelier, and he really knew his wines. They were some of the best we had tasted, and not just in Greece but anywhere. Between Sophia's charm and excellent teaching, the delicious food, and the incredible wine, this was one of the best activities hands down.

What a great experience doing the Greek cooking class. Sophia was a great instructor and made everything enjoyable. The food came out well and the scenery was beautiful for enjoyment of our dinner. One of the best highlight of our experiences in Athens. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a fun time and a little education on Greek cooking.

Rena was more than amazing!! She has so much culinary knowledge and talent. She taught us a lot about Greek cuisine in a fun and exciting way. We walked away feeling like we could recreate the meals on our own and share this experience with our family back home. She has a fun and vivacious personality that will brighten your day. It was like meeting an old friend.
