This is a unique opportunity to learn to cook regional Greek dishes with a local in her Athens apartment. Fotini is your warm and passionate host for a hands-on cooking experience focusing on dishes and ingredients that come from the Greek Islands. When she's not cooking, Fotini is an economist, MBA lecturer, writer and independent journalist. She started cooking and experimenting with recipes when she was a university student and discovered a deep appreciation of the various regional cooking styles of the Greek Islands, each featuring special herbs, cheeses or other ingredients that are unique to the locale. Fotini loves to meet people and is passionate about sharing dishes from the Greek Islands with her guests. As Fotini says, meals in Greece are a way to celebrate with guests over great discussion and music! Join Fotini to learn about homecooking the Greek way and taste traditional dishes that you may not find in restaurants.
