Owner description: A delightful hands-on cooking lesson and dinner; be initiated by the Chef into Greek cooking secrets with easy instructions and plenty of “hands on” preparation and cooking. But the best of all is the sumptuous dinner that you will have with the rest of your “classmates” at the end of the lesson.

It changed my perspective on healthy foods, which, as it turns out, can be very tasty :)
Book in advance, especially in the summer; it is usually hard to book less than two days in advance.
This is a great cooking activity in a small group, with a traditional Greek cook. The class is held at Diavlos restaurant, located in the historical center of Athens, close to the Acropolis.
The cooking instructor and her assistant are professional, friendly and courteous and made us feel welcome.
The cooking instructions were clear and we got to hear history bits about the origins of the foods we were cooking and some tips on Greek cuisine.
We sampled some of the food as it became ready and then enjoyed the four course dinner on the terrace as the sun was setting.
I don’t usually cook much but I plan to cook these meals as often as I can -
Hope you will have as enjoyable an experience as I had.

Fofi was an excellent host for this class. The recipies were easy and food delicious. Best part was learning more about greek traditions and history behind dishes. Staff at restaurant were also great. Will definently make some of the dishes again at home!

We met a beautiful family and a couple on their honeymoon. The atmosphere was relaxed, welcoming, and friendly. The recipes were easy, simple, and delicious. Our "tutor", Caterina was so lovely. We all took part in preparation. Even if you have never cooked before, you can do this and have fun! Our group age ranged from 10 to 60, and we all left feeling connected, happy, and full.

Our family took this class and truly enjoyed the experience. Fofi was a great teacher, even with a burnt hand! We had a group of 12. Each one of us was given a task (or several). Learning how to cook some Greek favorites was fun. Recipes I plan to make at home. Thank you, Fofi, for teaching me the techniques! Definitely recommend this!

I took this class with a friend...and it exceeded all expectations! Fofi was amazing and walked us through all the techniques while infusing the cooking lesson with history and culture! Each recipe used the freshest ingredients and she taught us all the little tricks to make everything turn out perfectly. A DEFINITE highlight during our time in Athens. If you only do one evening activity....do this one! The food is great--the atmosphere classic, and the live band was icing on the cake. Come, cook, eat and dance...best deal around!!
