Cooking Classes

Create and enjoy authentic, organic Greek dishes from handpicked ingredients to immerse yourself in the Greek culture.

The dishes you will cook are part of a Mediterranean diet, which have many health benefits such as:

  • reduced risk of heart disease and strokes

  • increase longevity and agility

  • reduced risk of Alzheimer and diabetes 


All herbs and seasonal products used in the class and at the restaurant are from local, organic island growers.  The classes will take place in the  garden for you to be able to enjoy touching and smelling the herbs and vegetable that you will be cooking with. 


The lesson includes:

  • a tour of the garden 

  • a cooking demonstration 

  • all recipes will be provided 

 

Menu

Our menus are authentic, seasonal, and locally adjusted based on the seasonality of the ingredients.  

 

Weekly dishes demonstrated vary according to your curious cooking vacation. We welcome every opportunity to show old traditional recipes and suggestions are welcome!

 

See you soon!
