Full description
Make your own way to the starting point in the flea market neighborhood of Monastiraki, located in the heart of Athens Old Town. Meet your tour host in the area’s central square, and then walk to a beloved downtown bakery. Head inside to meet your instructor — an experienced local chef — and begin with an overview of the dishes you’ll be creating during your class as well as an introduction to the tantalizing world of Greek cuisine. Then, set to work preparing and cooking a traditional 3-course meal with the chef close by to show you the correct techniques. Dishes vary, but typically include Greek delights like tzatziki, galaktompoureko (creamy custard pie), and spinach phyllo pastries. After your class, head up onto the bakery’s roof and sit down with the rest of your small group to enjoy the food that you and your fellow foodies have cooked. While you eat, relax with a glass of red or white wine, and admire the unparalleled views of the city, topped by the majestic Acropolis of Athens, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

This was probably our most favorite activity that we booked in Greece! Stam was so nice (and patient) with our group as we learned to cook delicious Greek dishes. We were a group of 10. The cooking time consisted of some individual helpers and then towards the middle is when we each got to work on our own plates following the directions of Stam. The food you make will honestly be the best you have your entire trip. It is so fresh and yummy! The dinner you get to have with everyone afterwards is awesome. It is set in a cool little rooftop bar with the perfect aesthetics all around. I wish I would have asked what brand of wine they served, it was probably some of the best I've had! I'm not exaggerating when I tell you to stop reading and book the experience because it is SO worth it if you love socializing and/or cooking! My husband and I did this just hours after landing in Greece and although we were the most tired we've ever been, we had the most amazing start to our honeymoon here!!

Super fun evening and great food!

Our cooking class was small (only 4 people) and we had a great time. Lots of fun conversation while we prepared the food. Our guide was fabulous, very knowledgeable as well as fun. The rooftop view of the Parthenon and city were stunning.
