Check-out Time:

You will be staying in Fotini's house during this holiday. Fotini will show you your private room and bathroom in a clean, 70 square meters meter penthouse with air conditioning, heater, and a private entrance.


After you've settled in, you will join Fotini at 2 p.m. for a glass of ouzo (a popular Greek aperitif) with snacks and hear about Greek cuisine. Afterward, you will head out to a local Athens market for a private tour. You will learn about how to choose the freshest Greek ingredients.

Once you return to Fotini's kitchen, it will be time to start your Greek cooking class which will last one to two hours. Fotini will teach you to prepare authentic homestyle dishes that are typical of the islands, such as:

  • Tomato keftedes (tomato balls, a traditional recipe from Santorini)
  • Fava (unlike western fava beans)
  • Froutalia (a traditional omelet from Tinos)
  • Ladenia (Greek pizza, a traditional dish from Kimolos)
  • Revithada (chickpeas cooked in the oven, a traditional dish from Sifnos) or sofrito (veal casserole with spices, a traditional dish from Corfu)

Once your cooking is complete, gather at the dining table to taste the fruits of your labor and enjoy a shared meal with your hosts. After your meal and a good night's sleep, you will wake up to a fresh Greek breakfast before you depart at noon. This experience gives you a glimpse of a local Greek's life with a visit into an authentic, local home to meet a local family and share the culture and cuisine together.
