What you'll do

After having a little aperitif, we are going to create a 6 course menu, including a starter, a salad, one vegetarian main dish, one with seafood, one with meat and a dessert. Of course we can change the menu if you have any food allergy or dislikes (e.g. vegetarian, vegan, gluten free). Afterwards, we are going to sit all together and enjoy the fruits of our labor, accompanied by wine and ouzo. In the end I will give you all the recipes from my grandmother.

My favourite Airbnb experience yet! This class was the highlight of my stay in Paros. Not only were my teachers friendly, funny and very communicative, but I also made some amazing new friends. We were given all the recipes at the end and had so much fun cooking and learning about one another. Don't even hesitate on this, just do it! You won't regret it!

Had a wonderful time with Maria! The food was absolutely delicious and it was a really fun experience to cook it ourselves. Make sure you come hungry, as you make lots of food!! 10/10

So happy we did the cooking class. Maria and her team went out of her way to accommodate all the dietary needs of the group. They went out of their way to make sure everyone had what they needed and enjoyed the experience.

This was an amazing total food experience! From the beginning, Maria and her staff were gracious hosts serving wine and Raki, making us feel at home. Maria showed us what to do to make Mousakka, Zucchini fritters, and amazing salad, beef stew in wine sauce and baklava. It was a perfect balance between eating and cooking. We sat for a couple of hours just enjoying conversation, hearing about Maria’s family, and the food and even made some new friends. This exceeded our expectations in every way. Our group of 5 (ages 25 to 58) highly recommend this authentic Greek experience! Thank you Maria!

Maria and her staff were exceptional. I went with a group of 8 women and they made the entire process personalized and efficient. We loved being able to sit down and enjoy the fruits of our labor with wine. The best part is Maria emails you all of her grandmothers recipes at the end. I would highly recommend this experience!

10/10. This was our favorite experience from our holiday hands down. Maria and her team walked us through prepping, fileting, cooking and baking some extraordinary local favorites. I'm tremendously happy that we chose to rent a car and drive over to Drios to meet and cook with Maria and her staff. They are truly lovely people and we got the pleasure to learn, eat, and drink through just a little local Parian food culture. Can't wait to visit again.
