Cooking classes in Athens

One of the great joys of travel is discovering the cuisine of the destinations you visit. You can learn a lot about the history and culture of a place through its food and drink. Culinary vacations are an ideal way to immerse yourself in a destination's cuisine and culture. Plus, enrolling in a short-term cooking class gives you the best souvenir possible: the ability to reproduce delectable dishes in your own kitchen back home!

Greek salad

Greek Salad, a classic salad served all over the world

Greece is THE country of food and Greek food is so much more than souvlaki, feta and greek salad (though they are classics for a reason). Thanks to the extremely rich variety of culinary delicacies, Greek cuisine deserves its notoriety. At the base of Greek delicacies are the excellent and tasty raw ingredients (resulting from unique soils and hot climate). A cooking holiday in Greece will reveal to you the complexity of Greek flavours and the balance of each individual dish – all whilst helping you understand Greek culture and how it is reflected in the food.

Athens is a perfect place to learn how to cook or to fine-tune your cooking skills. Fervent foodies, beginners who struggle to chop an onion, lifelong cooks – everyone is welcome to come and learn Greek cooking with the locals.

Athenstoolkit.com compiled for you a list of the most frequent questions about cooking classes in Athens so you can easily make your choice about the right cooking lesson for you.

Yes there are. The majority of the Athens cooking courses are held in English.

You name it, most cooking teachers have dealt with it before and are very accommodating. We would recommend contacting them in advance to be sure that it won’t be a problem.

That said, if you aren’t allergic, we would recommend trying a meal prepared the traditional way before judging it – you may just surprise yourself!

This can vary a ton, as can time of day. The shortest course we had was 3 hours and the longest was 8 hours, including a market tour and coffee break.

Again, this depends. Typically, cooking classes are between $45-200 USD per person, which includes all food and equipment, a market tour, tea or coffee, a cookbook, and sometimes other goodies.

Absolutely! Most cooking courses are designed with beginners in mind, and the teachers will walk you through each step. If you consider yourself an expert in the kitchen, you may want to inquire if the company you’re looking into has any advanced classes. (Sometimes varying courses for different levels of experience are offered.)
