Learn to prepare some traditional Greek recipes We spent the day learning some traditional Greek recipes and then enjoyed eating the food we had prepared with a glass of wine. The host was lovely, she was patient and funny, we learnt at a comfortable pace, with ample time to get to know the other guests between dishes. All required cooking equipment and ingredients were provided and the preparation area was thoroughly cleaned and re set between the preparation of each dish. A lovely was to spend a day.

Great time making memories Had a very warm welcomee from the moment we were picked up through to being dropped off at the end of the evening. The lessons we done is a informative and fun way that was easy to follow. Have pick up some new recipes to add to my list of meals I can prepare and cook. Location was lovely and being located by the sea added to the experience even more. If you are looking for some dodo to do on holiday that the usual tourist day trips I would recommend doing this course. Not only is it an experience you can share with friends and family it is one souvenir that will not take up any space in your suite case and will last a long time. To finish off you get to enjoy the food you have cooked while enjoying the sea view

Great experience! My daughter and I picked this experience because it happened later in the day than other tours, and they picked us up directly from our hotel in Heraklion. Due to very high winds, our venue was changed, but our driver brought us to an olive grove, where we were able to enjoy the beautiful view. We had a great time learning about Greek cuisine, and we had fun while we made the food. It was our favorite experience while on Crete!

Friendly and a great class We did a cooking class and it was so much fun! We were picked up at the hotel by Yanni and his sister Angela gave us the cooking class. Both were very friendly and we made delicious food during the class. We’d definitely recommend it!
