Full description

Learn how to make an authentic Greek Moussaka dish and Spanakopita pie during this cooking class in Athens with a local chef. Get an authentic look at Greek cuisine, then head to a rooftop location to take in the views while enjoying your handmade meal.

Head to a kitchen that's just a few steps from Monastiraki Square in the funky neighborhood of Psirri. Meet your chef for the day on a rooftop terrace featuring unbeatable views of some of the best sights of Athens.

During your call, you'll make two classic traditional pies: spinach pie and milk pie. Greek island-inspired salad with cherry tomatoes aromatized with aged local vinegar and Greek yogurt tzatziki sauce will also be on the menu.

Roll up your sleeves and start with your cooking preparations while chatting about Greek and Mediterranean cuisine with the chef. After getting introduced to the day's ingredients, the cooking class officially begins.

When the class is finished, take a seat and savor your food together with views of the Acropolis monuments and Parthenon temple lit at night. Finish off your evening taking in the vivid center of Athens overlooking the dome of Aghios Dimitrios Church.

The cooking class was very, very nice! Our host (Stam?) was very relaxed, humorous and open, so there was a good atmosphere in the group. The group size is perfect (~10 people) - a family atmosphere quickly develops. The cooking wasn't too complex, was a lot of fun and the end result was delicious! The portion sizes were also perfect! I recommend the course with a clear conscience. Thank you Stam :)

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!!

Fantastic experience. We had a very small group and so got maximum hands-on experience with cooking the dishes with the Chef. Lots of cooking advice and Tricks of the trade also.
