We booked the cooking class through Get your Guide and were warmly welcomed by Mariana and her mom Stella at Cretan Vibes Farm. We were a small group of 8 people and had a great time with great impressions and tips from Cretan cuisine. We particularly liked the relaxed atmosphere in which we cooked together. We also loved the fact that all of the ingredients are home-grown. Mariana explains everything very well and correctly. We thought it was great that we didn't have groups for a starter/main course/dessert, but cooked everything and after eating together the leftovers were divided up and we were able to enjoy the delicious food again the day after. It was a complete success and we would book it again. Nadin, Karo and Tanja

We took this class over a month ago and I'm still dreaming of the food we made with Marianna and her mother. Both are absolutely wonderful people and gave clear explanations on how to make everything. I like to think I'm a fairly good cook, but this class definitely brought my skills to a new level. I also happen to have celiac disease and Marianna was knowledgeable enough to adapt the menu so that it was authentic and gluten free! Additionally, we tried some of the dishes that we had previously made with Marianna in restaurants a few days later and honestly the ones we made during our cooking class were infinitely better. I should have known though. Over dinner Marianna and I talked, and her family grows part of the food used in the class. Furthermore, if she needs to buy additional products, she goes to markets and talks to the butchers and vendors to ensure she gets the best quality. Overall, this class was fun, delicious, and educational. I couldn't recommend it more. - Lindsay
