Overview

Join a local in their own kitchen as they show you just how traditional Greek dishes are prepared right at home where the real cooking happens! Take this opportunity to find out how to make spanakopita (spinach pie) or learn to master ravani, a sweet semolina cake that may quickly become your favourite dessert. Find out first-hand how to use fresh ingredients sourced as locally as possible to make an authentic Greek dish!

Get elbows deep in some tasty ingredients and you can choose to cook with one of the two great local home cooks Korina and Lena. Korina is a self-taught cook who has been creating dishes in the kitchen since she was a girl. She is committed to using fresh local ingredients and her greatest culinary aim is to satisfy her diners. She lives in a northern suburb of Athens and has a wonderful patio overlooking a garden. Lena is a native Athenian but her family roots are from both Corfu in the west and Asia Minor in the east, and she draws her inspiration in cooking from both of these traditions. In fact, some of her recipes date back generations. Her apartment is located in the north of Athens, overlooking a large garden.

You’ll discover techniques as well as recipes, and you’ll hear, too, the story of each dish – where it comes from and what it means to the family of the cook that’s teaching you. Don’t forget that nearly all the cooks in Greece are home-taught, and culinary wisdom is passed down from generation to generation. On the other hand, each cook is different as well, so you’ll also find out how tastes and dishes have evolved over time. Then, once all the cooking and the teaching are over, you’ll get to eat everything you’ve made, in a start-to-finish experience that’s miles apart from ordering this meal at a restaurant.
