Private Greek Cooking Class in Mykonos with a Food Professional

Summary

This is a unique opportunity to visit the home of a local and explore traditional culture and cuisine. Learn to prepare a traditional Greek meal and a few local specialties in Angelina's small kitchen during this private Mykonos cooking class. During your hands-on cooking lesson Angelina will teach you how to handle filo dough with ease preparing together both savory as well as sweet dishes like feta parcels with honey and sesame (or spanakopita if there is fresh spinach available) and the easiest baklava. She will also show you how to prepare a Greek meze table that includes putting together the Myconian “mostra" with the local kopanisti cheese, olives and taramosalata or other tasty bites. As you learn to cook with a small ouzo in hand, Angelina will help you understand Cycladic island gastronomy. You will discover how less becomes more in the Greek island cuisine, turning the limited produce of the islands into a deeply satisfying meal. Your lunch or dinner will include additional dishes that Angelina will have prepared in advance. You can expect to cook and talk for about an hour before you sit down to share the meal you helped to prepare.
