We had such a magical morning spending time with Eirini where we shared experiences and stories whilst making the Spinach pie and other delicacies. The whole experience to us felt very warming and safe, we were all wearing masks and gloves were also provided when making the food. We felt like we have made a new friends and we have created new connections, this is why I love to travel the world! To hear stories from people around the world. The ingredients used were the prime ingredients, and she wanted us to experience and share how she would eat and make Greek food. After the experience, she has sent us the recipes and photos from the day as well. She was such a lovely person and I would love to spend more time with her again next time I visit Athens. We also managed to take the food with us on our flight for lunch the next day!! It was still super delicious! I highly recommend this experience to anyone who loves a local experience and to meet a new friends.

Staying in Athens for a couple of weeks I was looking to connect with a real Greek person doing something very Greek! Omg! This experience was amazing! Arriving in Eirini’s flat felt like home already. There was one other lady already there and the smell of moussaka drifting out of the oven. We chatted like old friends over a glass of smooth and fiery home made alcohol of some sort together with some freshly prepared mezze. And then the cooking started......I wanted to make the traditional spinach pie which of course involves filo pastry. Into the flour mixture went my hands kneading away whilst Eirini poured in the water. The other lady was busy kneading the spinach - yes for real - and then we both tried rolling out the pastry and constructing the pie. All the while we were chatting about a plethora of topics and enriching not only our culinary skills but also our knowledge of Greece, its people and its culture. I came away from the evening on a complete high, a very full stomach and..... food to take home. Eirini is simply the best hostess and I would urge you all to try out this experience. It’s fantastic!

Eirini is a fabulous host and I genuinely felt so welcomed into her home. We started off sitting and chatting before we got down to making my choice of dish - mousaka - and she had coffee and sweets available for me. We got into some very deep conversations and I felt like I left the entire experience with a new friend! Also the food was to DIE for. I got to take home some leftovers and I am so excited to eat them tomorrow.

What a wonderful experience with Eirini. She welcomed us into her home with gracious hospitality. We cooked. We talked about light things and about cultural and deeper things. Although the food was delicious and there was value in the different cooking techniques/recipes to bring home, our favorite part was coffee with Eirini and getting to better know her and her country. That was priceless. Thank you for opening up your home to us. **only struggle we had was finding the place. We walked and google maps took us close but couldn't figure out how to navigate house addresses or which apartment was hers. May have missed something in her directions so just make sure you have a good grasp on that.

Very sweet host. I really enjoyed our communication and the cooking experience. We made delicious Moussaka and learned a lot about Greek culture, enjoying Eirini’s warm hospitality

Believe the other reviews. This was a great experience. It was enjoyable learning from the cooking experience but Eirini’s passion for helping and caring for people is what really made this experience memorable.
