Meet Christos

A professional chef, Christos is a fun and passionate host who enjoys meeting new people and sharing his knowledge of Greek cooking with them. Enjoy a cooking class with this Greek native who delights in showcasing garden fresh produce cooked using traditional Greek techniques. Your chef teaches cooking classes in a beautiful vineyard and garden venue. Unlike typical Traveling Spoon experiences, this experience takes place in a local cooking studio and restaurant and not in a home.

What to expect

Please note menu might vary. If there are particular dishes you are interested in trying, please include your request in the booking form.

Cooking experience: (2-12 guests) Meet your fun and friendly host who will give you a short tour of the gardens where they grow everything from the delicious Greek tomato to crisp cucumbers. At a modern, cooking studio, learn to cook authentic local recipes that your host has perfected. During this hands-on, Greek farm to table cooking class, you will cook with fresh vegetables and herbs from the gardens, as well as other ingredients from local farmers. Learn to make traditional dishes such as the famed Santorinian fava, tomato fritters, pork fillets with Vinsanto sauce or if you are vegetarian, an exquisite local tomato paste and garlic pasta. Your cooking class lasts about 1.5 hours after which you will savor the meal you helped prepare in a beautiful restaurant setting, indoors or outdoors, weather permitting. Your meal will be accompanied by volcanic wines from the Artemis Karamolegos Winery and concludes with a sweet dessert.

Notes: Your host is happy to accommodate vegetarian, vegan, lactose-free and gluten-free requests. Wine is included in the cost of your experience. On days that Christos is not available, an equally passionate culinary chef will host you instead.

Languages spoken: English, Greek, French

Absolutely loved this experience! Chris and Philip were so much fun and were very easy to talk to. We learned a lot about Greek cooking, ate an incredible dinner, and enjoyed the beautiful views of the garden and winery. Make sure you come hungry! We were stuffed by the time we left.

We had an amazing time! The chef and everyone at the restaurant were incredibly friendly, and the food was some of the best we’ve had in Greece! The recipes were simple enough that I feel like I could actually make them at home, but still delicious. The wine never stopped flowing and the atmosphere of the class was unbelievable. Highly recommend for anyone traveling to santorini!
