Cooking Lessons

We are constantly seeking, gathering and implementing traditional greek recipes for you.

Cooking Parties: Collect – Slice – Cook – Taste

Our cooking philosophy is quite simple: we want to share with you how to cook and enjoy good and healthy food. The mission is to offer our guests the culinary experience of a lifetime, in Greece. We want to welcome you into our ‘homes’ as if it was your home and make you feel totally at ease whether you are travelling alone or coming with your spouse or friends.

You will cook and taste Greek recipes under Nicky and George’s experienced guidance and supervision. Our chefs will share their expertise with the utmost generosity.
