Onion Athens is a place, where learning to cook traditional Greek recipes is approached differently: where the focus is on learning by doing, using what you have, what’s in season; most importantly, by following true, traditional recipes the exact way we were taught by our greek mothers and grandmothers.We offer a truly hands-on cooking experience combined with a fun dinner party environment. Just like getting an invitation from a local Greek friend! Our small class size enables us to teach in a totally hands-on fashion — which means you get to cook (and eat!) each and every item. We also pair our dinner and dishes with three different Greek wine varieties and talk more about the Greek wines and terroir. Onion Athens is located at Kolokotroni Street in the heart of historic Athens center, between Syntagma and Monastiraki squares.
