I can highly recommend this cooking class! It was such a unique experience! First we went to the cretan museum and we heard stories about life of Cretan people, then we had drinks and a small snack in the taverna and after that the cooking lesson started. We prepared delicious starter, meal and dessert. And the best of all, after the food was ready, they prepared a table for us and we could enjoyed the food we had prepared. After the lunch they offered us to enjoy to relax in the swimming pool. Felt very welcome!

As a Greek-American, this was a memorable experience I was able to share with my fiancé — We were able to take home, perféct and add to the Greek recipes we’re used to making! For those who wish to be engrossed in not only traditional foods but the Cretan culture as a whole, I highly recommend. 🇬🇷
