My wife and I, and my wife's friends, went to Marina's Crash course for Greek cooking. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Marina is very professional, and very knowledgeable about Greek cuisine. We learned a lot in such short amount of time. Highly recommend to any foodies with limited time in Athens

Marina was a wonderful host! We met at a local market and learned about the neighborhood and the different produce before heading back to her restaurant. The neighborhood was very nice and beautiful to walk through. We very much enjoyed learning about the cooking techniques and traditional foods we had not experienced before. She was kind enough to give us advice on our upcoming travels! The atmosphere was great and the food delicious!

Absolutely enjoyed the experience. My husband and I are vegetarian and Marina was able to accommodate our dietary restrictions and actually helped us make gyros with celery root! The cooking tips were great as was the quality of ingredients and the end result. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to enjoy Greece beyond the sights.

Feeling like at home

I booked this lesson with Marina in a group but at it was only me they cancelled it and offered a private lesson for some more money. I thought about it for a few hours and decided to go for it in the end. It was the right decision. She received me with some grapes and watermelon and asked about me for a few minutes before starting the course. Her experience and knowledge is noticeable and I learned a lot from her, not only the recipes themselves but other general cooking tips. Then we sat down and very nicely she asked me if she could join in. Of course I didn’t want to eat by myself. We talked over lunch about different subjects, not only cooking and had a great time. By the end of it I was feeling like at home. Greatly recommended.

Favorite excursion

Marina was the sweetest host. She greeted us at the door and walked us up to her homey apartment. She taught us how to cook typical euros, tzatziki sauce, Greek salad, and how to crisp the pita bread! She was very skilled with her culinary knowledge and Greek seasonings. We sat around the table and ate family style and had great conversation with wine and music. It was the perfect last night of our Europe trip! Thank you Marina

Hubby, grandson and I had a memorable cooking class and dinner at Chef Marina's charming home last night. This experience is very special, not to be missed! We were warmly welcomed and had great fun chatting and cooking a delicious meal of our choosing. Special diet restrictions were respected, no problem. We learned some cooking techniques, new recipes but most memorable was the opportunity to learn more about daily life in Athens. A great contrast to the ancient history and monuments. Highly recommended.
