What to expect

Your Athens market tour and Greek cooking lesson is not just a simple cooking demonstration, but a complete culinary journey that gets to the core of Greek gastronomy.

With a Greek food expert, you'll explore Varvakios, Athens's Central Market, and learn about typical Greek fresh fruits, vegetables and meats. Once you have obtained the necessary ingredients, you will visit a specially designed private space in a traditional historic restaurant where your chef will demonstrate how filoxenia--the Greek word for hospitality-- is a journey of flavors that starts with a rakι.

You will prepare traditional Greek appetizers like tzatziki and cheese pie, authentic Greek salad, a traditional main course and a typical dessert. Sit down for lunch to enjoy the fruit of your labor alongside some homemade wine.
