Learn about the Mykonian culture and Greece through its delicious food by taking the Mykonian Spiti hands-on cooking class.

You will be picked up by Mykonian Spiti's vehicle and transferred to Mykonian Spiti where you will be welcomed with a traditional "loukoumi" accompanied with Teta's liqueur before visiting the vegetable garden to learn the way of cultivating seasonal vegetables; used in the kitchen of Mykonian Spiti for food preparation. In the corner of the garden, you will be served Myconian traditional food like rusk with local cheese named "kopanisti," tomato, olives, "louza" (traditional Myconian smoked pork), local sausage accompanied with handmade wine and Cretan raki.

Before serving lunch or dinner, we will start the 45-minute cooking lesson with the responsibility of Teta. You will learn to make spinach pie, stuffed tomatoes, and peppers, and the famous tzatziki (strained yogurt or diluted yogurt mixed with cucumbers, garlic, salt, and olive oil).

Depending on the number of participants, guests will take turns helping the hostess with the preparation of the meal. Immediately after, lunch or dinner will be served to consist of all the dishes of the lesson (spinach pie, stuffed tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, seasonal salad, feta cheese, and kopanisti, and the main dish, orzo with beef).

Seasonal fruit and a handmade dessert will be served and can be washed down by an unlimited quantity of raki (a sweetened, often anise-flavored, alcoholic drink), handcrafted wines, and other fruit juices.

Before leaving, participate in a photo session with guests and staff, before signing the guestbook. Each pair of participants will receive a small gift bag loaded with traditional flavors and drinks. Upon completion of your experience, your escort will transfer you back to your terminal.

This unique Mykonian Spiti hands-on cooking class is sure to deliver the authentic cultural experience.
