A series of Cooking Lessons A Culinary Journey in Greece is a great way to unveil secrets well hidden inside kitchens and handwritten books passing from mother to daughter and grandmother to granddaughter. For some, holidays offer the perfect opportunity to get out of the kitchen. But for the foodies and apprentice chefs among us, a cooking class provides a prime opportunity to pick up a few cooking skills and shake the feeling that you’re an amateur in your own kitchen. After all, learning how to prepare delicious fried zucchini balls outlasts any souvenir in your scrapbook and it’s a great way to experience a new culture. A breathtaking scenery at Amani, the Ariousios Winery at the outskirts of Egrigoros village will host our willigness to take a slice of Chios back home. This epicurean hotspot features all the key ingredients necessary to appease your taste buds, with a cooking lesson and memorable handcrafted meal.
If you are interested in Chios cuisine, if you want to go deeper into Greek food or you are just in love with cooking, we invite you to join our gatherings, the Chios cooking lessons. An alternative activity to explore Chios and Greek culture, to unveil Chios secrets like a local. You will make, taste and enjoy traditional Greek recipes and prepare delicious dishes with the guidance and assistance of our cook, Teodora. Teodora, born and raised in Chios, bears all the knowledge of her family and shares it with us with love and integrity. She is passionate about food and a continuous searcher of recipes and ingredients to sprinkle the food with love and care. She is an author of numerous articles about food, recipes and culinary journeys and lately is preparing her own cook book to travel us into Chios cuisine and grandmother’s recipes, a cultural courtesy to Chians.

Since sipping coffee with your friends is considered the best way to start a conversation, imagine this as the beginning of our lessons. A traditional Greek treatment locally produced will accompany the stories of our Chef. Greek Music Music enhances the eating experience and Greek music is an example of digital seasoning to food. While the environment can offer unique sounds to our ears, the old radio next to our kitchen will provide reasons to dance. Don’t forget that there is food on fire so we will dance like Greeks: With stomach full!
