Highlight of trip to Naxos was renting a car and driving about 20 mins to a small town and meeting Katerina, who took us to her pristine family home, where we cooked a fabulous meal under her guidance. Katerina is charming, full of information and an excellent cook. She is very organized and we had such a great time learning to cook a few great courses. Highly recommend!
I booked the cooking course as a surprise for my mum and it was just the right thing! Katharina is a very friendly and warm person, we had a wonderful time together. We learned a lot about Greek cuisine and prepared very tasty food. It was like an afternoon with friends! We would repeat the course any time. :)
