This was the best activity I did while in Athens. I like that you took us to the market and we're had the chance to walk around and experience being a local. Glad loved at a perfect pace. Easy to follow. Simple enough to take everything home and cook for my friends. I glad it was really hands on. We all had a part in chopping, mixing and learning. I didn't feel l inferior but like dad in my mom's kitchen learning with friends. I would do this again and again. Thanks so much. You made Greece proud.

Nice recipes

The walk through the central market with Vasia's explanations was super interesting. Vasia did a good job in teaching and entertaining us back in the kitchen. The red wine is terrible, but that's the case in many places if you pick the house wine, always go for the white wine.

This was such an amazing experience and fun way to spend my birthday in Athens! From the tour of the local market to the delicious meal we cooked and ate together it was non-stop fun, laughter, and learning about Greek tradition. So happy to have learned from and cooked with Vasia! We'll take these dishes back home with us and cook them all the time :D
