Cooking Classes in Mykonos Greece

6 h
About this activity
‘Spiti’ means home – and the “Mykonian Spiti” is our home that you are welcome at, during this cooking experience. Although this activity highlights the traditional factor of the Mykonian lifestyle, on the other hand a “traditional” description of its “programme” hardly does it justice. This may sound vague, but during these 6 hours (approximately) you will experience the traditional Greek way of life, the culture, the Greek art of cooking. It is not what you will do, it is mostly how you will do it. During this time you will learn tips and cooking methods that have made Mykonian Spiti, Mykonos and Greece, loved by its friends and visitors, but most importantly you will instil the hospitality and the everyday lifestyle of a traditional Mykonian family.

To become a bit more specific, after you are collected from your hotel (or the Cruise ship port) and transferred to the Mykonian Spiti, Teta will wholeheartedly invite you into her beautiful Mykonian home and create a charming and intimate evening that will turn this visit to the “Island of the Winds” into a highlight of your trip. She will teach you about Mykonian culture and history, share stories about her family’s life and make you feel just as if you are visiting close relatives or friends. She will share stories about Mykonian true lifestyle and chat with you while you will taste and enjoy some Mykonian meze snacks like dakos with kopanisti cheese and tomato, louza (sun dried pork fillets), wine and Cretan raki. You will wander through her vegetable garden, learn about local organic farming and enjoy a wonderful time.

And then onto the kitchen where we you will make tsatziki and spinach pie, stuffed peppers and tomatoes, beef with orzo and everything else in our Mykonian Spiti’s traditional menu. All guests, will be supplied with protective equipment (aprons) from the Mykonian Spiti farm-estate. Most cooking ingredients will be readily available in special bowls in the kitchen area ready for the menu preparation. Teta will guide you through the whole procedure, giving the opportunity to everyone to master their cooking skills. When the cooking class ends, lunch or dinner starts, where you can consume as much as your belly holds. Moreover, guests upon request also have the option of visiting the family’s farm and vineyard and experiencing the traditional animal and organic farming or they can take a quick swim at a beautiful nearby beach.

There are many other details to the “class” that we could share with you but the essence is that as you can see, this is much more than learning to cook a fabulous Greek meal. It is also about family, conversation, food and culture and becoming a member of a family that perhaps you didn’t even know you had. It is quality time in the home of someone close to you, finding yourself in their kitchen helping to cook, enjoying the experience of meeting new people and honouring us by becoming a part of our family.

I highly recommend taking this class. My three sisters and I took this class while visiting Mykonos and had a great time. The owner and her cousin made this class fun and approachable for cooks of all levels. There were a couple of competitions, recipes prepared by the men in the class, the women, by teams, and by each person. At the end we all sat down and ate what we had prepared. Wine and water were served while cooking and with the meal. The house is air conditioned (it was a hot day) and the wall enclosed patio area is beautiful.

After 7 days of going non-stop in Mykonos my husband and I were ready for something different. We spent our last evening cooking at the spiti. It was a great experience. She was so welcoming and the home was beautiful. She taught us traditional mykonian recipes and a lot of interesting history about Greece. She even made me a special drink for my chest congestion, mykonian version of a hot totty, and it really helped. The food was delicious. We shared it with the other students while enjoying good wine and good conversation. I would definitely go back!

This was such an amazing experience! Teta's home is so beautiful and the food she helps you prepare is AMAZING! She worked hard to include my teenage children in the cooking experience and accommodated my mother who has a dairy allergy. We were on a cruise ship and had only a limited time in Mykonos and I'm so glad we chose this. You will walk away with a full belly, amazing memories, and recipes to recreate your experience when you return home.

This was a fantastic experience. We went from the ship to a farm visit. Skip it as it is not done well and certainly not worth the time or effort. From there we went to the cooking class with Teta. We had a fun filled time cooking, drinking wine, talking with all the people there and eating our own cooking! I don't cook but had a great time learning and cooking. One of the best tours I have ever taken!
