“​Super fun day!

Could not have been treated better. Welcoming and informative and all around a fun time. When we arrived, we had coffee and juices, enjoyed the views. Niko showed us techniques and we enjoyed not only the cooking lesson but also his personality as well as Katarina. I would do it again! - Donna H

Great way to spend the day!

Cooking class at Chania Gastonomy was such a great way to spend one of our days on Crete. Our group consisted of my daughters 13 and 16, my husband and myself, and my mother. We all enjoyed the class, and of course - the end result - lunch! The ingredients were top notch and the portions plentiful. We all came away with some new skills to apply at home, and some simple, authentic Cretan recipes. We also enjoyed interacting with the other travelers. A huge thank you to Nick, our hostess and translator, Manolis (the owner), our chef, and the staff for such a fun experience.
(And, I almost forgot to add that the team was very gracious about adapting the recipes so that our daughter who is allergic to dairy could enjoy everything).
