    Cooking and History class, all-in-one!
    Diane_K, Sep 2023
    Elisa is a font of knowledge about the history of Greek food — from how food was sourced, cooking techniques, and how other cultures influenced various dishes. She is a very direct and firm teacher — but underneath that is the heart and warmth for which Greeks are known.

    Greece has been at the top of my bucket list since I saw Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants when I was 8! Finally made it at 28 and it was well worth the wait- and the sweetest part of our trip was the cooking class at Villa Maria’s. We learned to make the MOST delicious food and made friends along the way. Truly an experience I will never forget.
    An exceptional experience!

    Our cooking class with Elisa was one of the highlights of our 3-week trip to the Cyclades. Elisa is a lovely lady, very friendly and knowledgeable. She had put a lot of thought into the dishes that we cooked and we were pleased that we also opted in for the wine & cheese pairing because that was similarly well thought-through. Dining with a small group of fellow visitors gave us the opportunity to share experiences and ask plenty of questions about Syros, its history and culture. A BIG thank you to Elisa and Costas for their warm welcome and for the memorable evening!
    If you are a foodie, don't pass this up!

    Our cruise ship changed our itinerary which meant we had to change days for this tour. Elisa, the lady giving the cooking class, changed her plans so we could still do this. Cruise ship docked at Ermoupoli and it was about a 20 minute cab ride (14E) to her house. She had a garden and a lot of fruit trees. we actually ate outside in a nice little area that shaded by trees. We all go in the kitchen (there were 4 of us) and Elisa starts the class. We did 6 courses and this part took a couple of hours. Elisa was so knowledgeable very entertaining during the class. We ate outside and had her pair wines for the meal (extra $). This was excellent tour and I would highly recommend it. It was one of the best tours we had in greece
