Was ihr unternehmen werdet

We’ll start the day in the truly Greek way by making ‘frappe’, (iced coffee) or Greek coffee, with every one making their own, to get into the spirit of the morning.

Once we’ve all got to know each other, we will begin by making a Greek style pita bread, everyone can have a go at this- a truly hands on experience. This will be closely followed by 2 starters, all of which are standard Greek dishes that people often struggle to recreate at home. We tell you all the ingredients you need, where to get them and show you how it’s done.

In the same way we will be making 2 main dishes, one will be vegetarian and one a typically Greek dish with Zakynthian flavours. We'll end the cookery with a masterclass in the ultimate Greek street food, the ‘Gyros Pita’, where you get to make your own pita.

Then finally we finish the day with a wine tasting hosted by a local expert, and present you all with a copy of the recipies we have made, hoping that you'll leave feeling inspired to try them all out at home.

«Thank you for wanting to share your day with us, we are sure you will enjoy yourselves and feel confident to try all these recipes at home.»

My name is Alex, I have grown up in a restaurant environment, surrounded by chefs and food my entire life. At the age of 16 I started working in the kitchen and have been in and out ever since.
I've travelled the world in search of new food experiences but it's always Greek food that really inspires me with its beautifully simple, healthy ingredients. As the second generation owner of one of the most successful restaurants on the island, I believe I can offer a unique and worldly view on food.
This is who I am, and I really hope that you will join me on a delicious journey into Greek Cuisine.

We really enjoyed this greek cooking class and the delicious food we made by ourself. Alex is a great host and storyteller. It feels like he knows everything about the history of greek cuisine. He tought us that there are two different worldviews: Either you take everything for granted or you are amazed and fascinated by everything around you, like a small child. You will have this cooking class in a small group and sit around a table where the meal is being prepared by Alex and his team. Each dish one or two of the group will get a chance to help them. This setup is perfect, because this way you can learn how every step has to be done.

So much more than just a “cooking class”…. The combination of passionate storytelling, tranquil surroundings, likeminded travellers and of course delicious traditional Greek food made us feel like we were tasting the true heart of Zakynthos. We followed the itinerary described in the description, however, honestly there was so much more to the experience. We felt more like guests being hosted by relatives or close friends then clients being provided with a service. We were able to help create and of course taste a wide variety of dishes that took on a new tasting perspectives when placed in the context of their heritage thanks to accompanying stories. All the of recipes were helpfully printed into a little pack so you didn’t have to worry about recording all the recipes, you could simply enjoy the experience. By each member of the group taking part in the preparation of different dishes, when we came together at the end to sit at a big table under the shade in the beautiful garden, it felt like a family feast. With wine at the table we were all brought together despite our different nationalities by our shared experience and shared enjoyment of the delicious meal. If you are considering the price of this experience versus the price of a meal at a fine dining restaurant - I would without a doubt recommend choosing this experience as it’s gives you so much more than just the opportunity to create and taste Greek food. The love and passion put into the organisation and running of the experience will be something that stays with me. If you are considering doing one activity on Zakynthos - DO THIS!

A great cooking class with many incredibly yummie Greek dishes! The stories about Greek kitchen culture were really interesting and exciting! We can only recommend this experience!

Alex was a good storyteller and gave us a very authentic view in the Greek kitchen. We learned a lot and could practice a little bit. Thank you for the experience!

If I could give this more than 5 stars I would!! This was the BEST thing we did in our 2 weeks in Zakynthos by far (and the most incredible food we ate). I am a huge foodie and wasn’t expecting this level of knowledge, expertise, sophistication in delivery and value. We learnt so much about the history and culture of the island and Greece as a whole and the cuisine. The hosts are just beautiful people and I felt so lucky to be a part of this day. Even if this experience was double the price it would have been value for money. Just do it!!!

All in all a great experience! the host (Alex) is a great storyteller, that really captured the audience. He kept the storytelling consistent and exciting, without it being overwhelming. the food was amazing and you learn a lot throughout the class, both about the culture and just general nice cooking tips. other than that the setting is so beautiful and you can tell that they cook with love! The staff is extremely nice and talented and you leave the place with a full belly and a great feeling!
