One of the most memorable aspects of a visit to Greece is its cuisine. Food that is fresh, rich with flavor and healthy makes it hard not to fall in love with Greek gastronomy. Here at Akti Retzika, our aim is to enable our guests to participate in a memorable and fun culinary experience by offering hands-on cooking lessons. Guests will learn how to cook and and enjoy healthy Greek food. The lessons are casual and will include traditional Greek recipes such as tzatziki, melitzanosalata, stuffed peppers and other favorites. All of our dishes are prepared by using fresh ingredients including olive oil, meat, cheese and vegetables.
// The cooking lessons are informal and in English.
// Recipes vary according to the seasons. We use only the freshest ingredients available.
// The sequence of activities might change, subject to weather and to the availability of certain ingredients.
// A vegetarian or vegan menu, or a menu with dietary restrictions are available upon request.
