Do you sell gift cards?

We think that our cooking classes make great gifts for friends, relatives and work colleagues who travel to Greece. If you want to buy a cooking class as a gift but you are not sure which date the receiver would prefer for their class then a gift card is ideal. They will receive a voucher via email and can simply go online to choose and book a course of their choice. All of our vouchers are valid for 12 months from date of purchase. To buy a gift card please contact us at info@cookinathens.com

How long is each class?

It depends on the class. Our classes last from 3 to 5 hours, depending on the menu. However if you have less time available please contact us at info@cookinathens.com and we will come up with a solution.

Every day from Monday to Friday from 6.00 pm to 9.00 pm. There are also classes during the weekend which start at 11:00 and at 17:00. If you need your group to start at a different time or you want a class on a different day we can make arrangements in advance as long as there are at least 4 participants. Book a Class here

We need at least 2 participants for our cooking classes. Our maximum public class number is 10. However we can accommodate a larger group of guests upon request.

Our classes are totally hands-on. To ensure all class participants learn the most important parts of the given menu, certain key techniques (such as making dough for pies from scratch) will be executed by all class participants.

I'm New To Cooking. Do I Need To Have Any Special Skills To Attend Class?

Not at all. We’re here to teach and students of any skill level are welcome. If you’re new to cooking, we suggest you ask us plenty of questions.

Do You Provide Printed Recipes?

Yes, you get a set of recipes to take home and recreate the menu at your leisure. And if you ever lose your recipes, we’ll be happy to email them to you!

I Am A Vegetarian. Can You Accommodate Me?

Sure, we will make the best to accommodate you. If you are vegetarian or vegan and in a group of minimum 4 people, please email us in order to arrange a private cooking class. In any case, even if you are the only vegetarian in a group we will be able to accommodate you.

What If I Have To Cancel My Class After I Make A Reservation?

What if I have food allergies?

Please note this when you sign up for classes during the checkout process. We will do our absolute best to accommodate your needs, but please note that we cannot guarantee we are free from traces of any allergen and other people in the class may be cooking with that ingredient, even if you do not eat it.

Do you offer discounts for large groups?

If you are part of a large group please contact us in order to arrange a special menu at a special price.
