WHAT TO EXPECT

An unforgettable experience of authentic Greek private cooking in Athens.

Immerse yourself in the culture and atmosphere of Athens as you follow chef Christos at the local market to source the freshest of ingredients. As you make your way back to the house, you will be invited to roll up your sleeves and be guided through the hands-on preparation of classic Greek dishes. Under the passionate guidance of our chef, you will learn and actively prepare an appetizer or salad and a main dish, traditional recipes from all over Greece sometimes with an added special twist that makes all the difference.  As you will be chopping vegetables and mixing ingredients, Christos will engage you with stories about his family and the secrets of each dish.

Christos is a keen follower of seasonality in the ingredients he uses in his cooking, and depending on the time of the year you will be able to cook some of the following:

  • Melitzanosalata (eggplant salad)
  • Fresh Salad
  • Ladenia (oil pie from Kimolos island)
  • Meat pie from Crete
  • Stuffed calamari
  • Orzo with meat or fish
  • Seafood dolmades (with prawns)

The preparation will be followed by a 3-course semi-private served dinner meal, served with exquisite Greek wine, each dish paired with a different wine.

After the experience, Christos will happily share with you the recipes of your dinner, so that one day I will be able to recreate those delicious dishes in my own kitchen.

Let us take you on a journey of discovery and exquisite gastronomy in the heart of Athens, a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

THE COOK

Christos is a true Athenian. Soon after completing his studies in architecture he realized that cooking was his true passion. He travelled extensively across the world and developed his own style of cooking, which led him to establish a collaboration with the Greek Embassy in Argentina.  There he founded the pop-up restaurant Cocina Rodante Griega to a great success, and came to explore a pan-Mediterranean or MediAmerican cuisine. Since 2020 he devotes all his energies to his new Kalos Aeras project.  

 

THE PLACE

The house that will host your experience is an exquisite example of 50s Athenian architecture and is located in a quaint neighborhood close to the city center. With its distinct flair that calls for relaxation and indulgence, it features leafy verandas where to dine al fresco (most of the times) in a classy setting where vintage and modern element harmoniously coexist.
