"My husband and I had so much fun cooking with Fotini and her husband! They were patient and encouraging and our food turned out delicious!!! I would recommend them to anyone-we cannot wait for next time!"
Kelly 18 May 2021
"We had a great time! My son is a big fan of Greek food, and since we cannot travel due to Covid, we decided to gift him an online cooking class for his birthday. He had a wonderful time. The written materials were easy to follow (we shopped beforehand) and our hosts were extremely gracious. The food was delicious. Would definitely do it again!"
Janice 19 April 2021
"Fotini was so gracious . She dealt with 3 generations taking this online class in n 3 cities and 2 time zones! Her husband Christopher provided great video and prep assistance. The recipes were a bit involved but everyone agreed the meal was exceptional!"
Kelly P 18 May 2021
"My son is a big fan of Greek food and due to the pandemic, our travel and dining options are limited. For his birthday, we purchased the online cooking class. The written instructions/recipes were easy to understand. We did our shopping beforehand and were ready for our afternoon cooking lesson... Our hosts were very gracious and attentive. We had a good time pulling everything together, and the meal turned out perfectly (my daughters enjoyed it, too, as we cooked enough for five - and they don't usually eat eggplant). We would definitely do it again!"
Trevor 27 March 2021
"We had an excellent time with Fotini and her partner. It was great to be able to do this with family in another state but still be together. It was fun to learn something new and the dishes were very tasty!"
Matt 27 March 2021
"Fotini was wonderful! She explained everything very well, was an absolute delight and the food was absolutely incredible!!!"
Will 25 March 2021
"I could not have asked for a better experience. With Covid taking away a lot of restaurants around me, my girlfriend and I have to constantly look for new and unique experiences. Fotini’s class was incredibly easy to follow and helped make the most out of the experience."
Aaron and Angela 19 January 2021
"My wife and I had a really enjoyable time with Fotini and Stefano on Saturday. The food was delicious and the experience was very entertaining. I have already told many friends about the virtual trip to Athens :) We just enjoyed our second meal too. Thank you for a great time. Look forward to another lesson in the future. "
Rachel and Carolyn 11 November 2020
"Loved this experience. Fotini was a great host and teacher. We got a history lesson that connected us in the food we were making. She was good at giving feeback and paced the dish making. She moved the camera around to give us multiple angles to see the cutting, what was cooking in the pots, and what we had to do next. Her husband helped to show us how to make the greek meatballs (SO DELICIOUS), so she could explain what to do while he showed us the steps. Also the eggplant dish was sublime. Highly recommend taking with class with Fotini. We've been telling all our friends to signup! We'll probably see you again Fotini."
Peg & Bob 7 August 2020
"We enjoyed the cooking class and especially loved the recipes. They were delicious!! Fotini, and Christo were wonderful! They were very patient and gave easy to follow instructions. Loved being able to learn from and speak with them from across the globe."

"It was a great experience and the food was delicious."
Harriet 29 June 2020
"Such a fun class - we had a couple of little technical hitches to start with but after that everything went smoothly! Fotini and her son were lovely and gave very clear instructions that were easy for us to follow. The food was delicious too - it was great to have a taste of Greece since we won't be able to travel there this year."
Heather Patton 1 June 2020
"We have very different eaters at our house, some more adventurous than others. But we finally found common ground: Soutzoukakia. We really enjoyed our class, and we LOVED eating the results! Fotini explained that these Greek meatballs are her husband, Christo's, favorite dinner. And wow, he is right! We had a great time learning to make soutzoukakia, and we also made a delicious eggplant dish, topped with lots of Greek feta. We learned a lot, the ingredients were easy to find, and we are ready to take another class with Fotini in her kitchen!"
Kathy McAree 5 May 2020
"We really enjoyed our class — and the food was absolutely positively delicious! Fotini and her husband, Christo, are lovely. We weren’t always keeping up, but Fotini did not rush us and was generous with her time. I have to admit that when I looked at the meatball and potato dish, it didn’t look that great. I never could have simply made it from the recipe. However, it smelled amazing while cooking and the finished product was really, really good — lovely flavours! And the recipients of the meal loved it, especially the eggplant dish which was a surprise to the two who said they don’t like eggplant. They do now!"
Paula 28 April 2020
"Fontini is a lovely woman with great insights on Greek cuisine. It was really fun cooking alongside her and her husband. The food was incredible! My whole family was speechless."
Sharon Knight 27 April 2020
"Soutzoukakia and eggplant make a phenomenal pairing! With Fontini's guidance, both dishes came out perfectly. I have never had a good experience cooking eggplant before but now feel confident in doing so. My husband and I both enjoyed the class, getting to know Fontini, and sharing stories about Greece. We took our class at 9am PDT which allowed us to enjoy a wonderful outdoor lunch and Fontini dinner in Athens following."
