Athens Gourmet Tour


A professional Greek chef named Yorgos and his assistant Marie took us on a fascinating tour of local markets where we were given a short history of Greek culinary traditions and bought fresh ingredients for our subsequent cooking class. Our chefs did a wonderful job of both teaching and entertaining us in a modern and cozy kitchen in the heart of Athens for a hands-on cooking experience. Highly recommended!
