Sophia was an incredible instructor and made our experience so much fun!! She was very knowledgeable and encouraging throughout the class. While learning about Greek traditions, we made 6 delicious dishes including a dessert, had wine and then enjoyed the dinner we made together. The location was perfect and the view was breathtaking! Overall 5 star experience! It was definitely the highlight of the trip to Athens for my son and me! Highly recommend!

One of our favorite things we did in Corfu
Dwayne_N
, Jun 2022
This was one our my husband's and my favorite things we did in Corfu. We liked the activities of the class--meeting in Old Town then enjoying backyard cooking and a tour of our host's property before sitting down with fellow travelers from different countries to eat excellent food and talk travel and politics. The recipes were good, but it was the entire experience that made this activity a highlight for us. The length was a little long for our kids and not quite long enough for us parents.

Fabulous, with a “But…”
Kathleen_S
, Jun 2022
Fab class! But one important critique: Host(ess) had us using vinegar to “disinfect” utensils used first for raw lamb, then vegetables. This is actually not a safe / effective way to prevent cross-contamination at all. Also, recommend you ask to sample the wine to be served with dinner. The white was fine, the red was…not. Came away with a doable dinner and the company was tops!
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Thank you for your feedback, dear Kathleen. We are glad you enjoyed your cooking class and the company! You are right about vinegar; it is not officially considered a disinfectant, and our Quality Assurance team is already taking all necessary measures to prevent reoccurence of the incident. Rest assured though that all cooking ingredients used are of exceptional quality, and properly rinsed/cleaned/sanitized by professionals before class. We take great care of food hygiene to ensure absolute safety for guests at all times! As for the red wine, we are really sorry you did not like it, as most of our guests adore it. Again, we greatly appreciate your valuable comments that help us improve! We hope to see you again in Athens, perhaps to offer you some red wine you'd really enjoy! Have an amazing day!

Not worth the money
Sarra_B

1) Not hygienic- Everyone prepared the food for Everyone with no gloves and touching their phones in between 2) aimed at absolute beginners with no basics that have never rasped anything, hold a whisker or squeezed a lemon for example 3) Everyone is asked to sit instead of to stand while prepping food which made it a weird cooking experience overall
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Thank you for your feedback, Sarra. We’re sorry to hear that your experience was far from satisfying. We strive to create a pleasant environment where guests can enjoy preparing traditional Greek dishes of finely selected, fresh ingredients with their fellow cooking classmates. We want our guests to connect through food, learn, and have fun. Therefore we would like to address all the points you've made, one by one: We do request and require our guests to sanitize their hands before the lesson with the hand sanitizers we provide, or by washing them thorougly. Moreover, we have gloves available on the table for everyone to use, and our instructors always wear them during the lesson. Our cooking class is for both beginners and intermediate level cooks; we do try to accommodate people who may have never cooked before, and make it an inclusive cultural experience. May we add that some of the dishes our guests learn how to prepare, like the spinach pie or the stuffed vine leaves (dolmades) are considered challenging even for professionals. We ask our guests to sit because we have found that the whole experience is more relaxing this way and there is more space for everyone to use. It is also easier for people to focus on their instructor when they are sitted. However, this is only a recommendation; if a guest prefers to cook standing, then it is fine by us. We are truly sorry that you did not enjoy an experience that is most favored by the vast majority of our guests, and which constantly receives outstanding feedback. We hope that you will visit us again in the future giving us another chance to show you why we are among the top rated experience providers in Viator! Have a beautiful day and enjoy the rest of your trip!

what a wonderful experience while in Athens. Great food, great instruction and a great view in the background. We learned to cook up multiple different greek meals and dishes.

Our cooking class with Sophie was the highlight of our stay in Athens. She was a wonderful hostess with a welcoming and beautiful spirit. The recipes she made with us were delicious, very traditional Greek cuisine, and eating on the balcony while observing the Parthenon was so magical. We were so honored to be the only 3 participants (myself and my 2 adult daughters) so we received special and individual attention. When we left we felt like we had been lifelong friends. We highly recommend this experience! ❣️

And what a wonderful commentary, dear Jae! We certainly feel honored too for having such amazing guests! We couldn't be happier that you and your daughters had such a great time with Sophia! We are looking forward to seeing you again soon! Until then, keep traveling and collecting beautiful memories!

Authentic Greek cooking with great views
Monicaescott

Sophia was a wonderful hostess and the entire support staff were incredible, attentive and very engaging. We learn to cook (chopped, rolled, shredded and squeezed) all of the ingredients to make authentic Greek cuisine. The vistas from the restaurant where exactly as described overlooking the acropolis and Parthenon. Cooking events give you an opportunity to engage with other travelers and locals to create more memorable experiences and opportunities for social relationships.

Absolutely wonderful experience-you will fall in love with Greek food and culture !
Karina_N

The Athens cooking class and dinner is a MUST DO when visiting Greece. The experience was amazing. Our chef and instructor - Sophia, was absolutely wonderful. She was full of life and love and tremendous knowledge about Greece cooking handed down from her grandmother. She was an inspiration and filled the class with passion and energy - it was impossible not to fall in love with Greek food and culture. Thank you Sophia for imparting your expertise….and, now I will be forever in love with this beautiful country!

Dear Karina, you definitely are an inspiration too, and made us fall in love all over again with Greek cooking! What an amazing review! Thank you for taking the time to share such lovely comments - and yes, Sophia is a indeed a treasure! We hope to see you again soon in our city, especially now that we filled your visit and cooking book with heart-warming memories! Please stay safe, and keep making the world a better place with your kindness!

Very cool experience
Christine_P
, Mar 2022
This was one of our best travel experiences. Sophia was amazing! We learned to make 5 dishes and actively participated in each dish. We learned so many tips and then enjoyed an amazing fresh meal we had made! They provided us with all the recipes and we got to enjoy wine from the sommelier (it is extra but was enjoyable while we cooked). They packed up the food we didn't eat to take with us and we shared lots of it with the staff as we made way to much food! We made lamb with potatoes, spinach pie, stuffed grape leave, tzatziki, and greek salad. Each of which was really good.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2022
Dear Christina, thank you so much for such a yummy feedback! We are delighted you liked both Sophia and your hands-on experience! We can almost taste the freshness and the deliciousness of all the great dishes you prepared! We are greatful for this excess of enjoyment your review conveys! We are expecting you back really soon for another interesting and fun activity! Till then, keep having good times, and stay safe!

Amazing cooking class with Sofia and Nicollete - they made the class so much fun - love that it’s a totally hands on experience! We learned and laughed a lot! Sofia is a natural at making you feel comfortable and is very knowledgeable about the Greek cooking culture. The restaurant has a beautiful view and has a great area to cook in. We will be back the next time we are in Athens! We had a blast and would highly recommend everyone to try it!

Excellent Experience
Maddy_P

We signed up for this greek cooking class while we were on our honeymoon. Our teacher, Sophia, was excellent! She was very sociable, kept the class engaged and made it fun. She explained the techniques in a very simple and straightforward manner. The food we cooked was so delicious. The kitchen we cooked in had an excellent view of the Acropolis as well. We're so glad we did this. It was an incredible experience and we had a lot of fun. We cannot wait to cook the recipes we learnt for our friends and family back home!
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
Dear Maddy, how beautifully you describe your experience! We are doubly glad that we were able to offer you pleasant moments during your honeymoon, and that you enjoyed your cooking lesson with Sophia so much! Your lovely comments made her very happy! Please join us again next time you are in Athens, for more fun cooking and new recipes! Allow us also to wish you the very best as you embark on this next chapter of life! May the years ahead be filled with love, joy, and good food!

Cooking is ‘Love””’
Alma_L
, Nov 2021
We had the most amazing time with Sophia, our cooking instructor. We spent five hours chopping, cutting, laughing, mixing, drinking, baking, drinking and eating the food we had prepared with the expert guidance of Our instructor. She told us that food always tastes better when it is made with ‘love’. And, let me say, the food was delicious! Add to the great time together, the cooking class was at the Hill Athena restaurant- a partner with the cooking school, so we were able to see the Acropolis at night while we prepared our totally Greek meal. We were given the recipes for every dish we prepared. It was a 5+star experience!! Thank you Sophia!!!
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
And thank you, Alma, for this truly wonderful review, whose title says it all! This too is made with love, and we can feel it pouring out of the text. Sophia was super excited reading your lovely comments, as she always goes above and beyond to make everyone in the group fall in love with cooking the way she does. I think in your case she definitely succeeded! Please join us again next time you find yourself in Athens; we'll have more recipes for your cookbook!

This experience exceeded my expectations!! Sophia, Lucy, and the rest of the team were amazing. We had a very hands-on cooking experience, while learning about Greek culture and traditions, and then enjoyed the amazingly delicious food with a stunning view. Sophia is a very very warm, inviting, fun and energetic person. You will leave this experience feeling fulfilled and happy, and you will surely make new friends.

What an AMAZING experience! Sofia was our chef/host/guide and she was FANTASTIC. She was so knowledgeable about Greek cuisine and explained every step clearly and gave some history for each dish. Each recipe was authentic and felt like something a Greek grandmother would make for Easter dinner. Every recipe was prepared simply, and by hand. Be prepared to WORK a little bit, your hands WILL get dirty and tired, but that's part of an authentic home-made meal. At the end of the day, Sofia made us feel like family in her own home. We dined outside, at sunset, with the Acropolis and Parthenon in view. Thank you Sofia for such a memorable experience!
