The cooking class is hands on and runs for 2 1/2-3 hours. This will depend on the menu during which time we will prepare at least 3-4 dishes from start to finish. All menus are custom designed to suit your tastes, skills, dietary requirements and kitchen equipment. We cater for vegans, vegetarians etc.
Your health concerns and expectations are discussed with health and wellness coach and intuitive chef Maria Benardis so that a menu is put together that meets all your requirements.
During the cooking class the story, history and healing wisdoms to the dish and ingredients will be covered. The recipes are also provided. The cooking class is interactive and a fun activity. It adopts ancient Greek intuitive wisdoms and agapi cooking techniques. Stress free cooking free of measurements.
