Cooking Class in a Traditional Village on Naxos

Discover the authentic Greek way of life through your tastebuds. This hands-on cooking class is an excellent way to immerse yourself in local traditions and cuisine. You'll experience a typical meal and the day-in-the-life of a local family.
You'll meet your host in the Naxian village of Kaloxylos, home to just 30 inhabitants. The hamlet's charms range from flower-filled yards to century-old olive trees, classical architecture, an impressive church, and the Cyclades' biggest folklore museum. Your host's family will welcome you into their home and share stories about everyday life in this traditional little town. Then, you'll prepare a typical Greek meal.

You'll help your host prepare a 3-course menu based on fresh, seasonal, and local ingredients. Using traditional recipes passed down from generations, you'll learn about the Mediterranean diet and why it is significant to the islanders. When finished, enjoy your meal the Greek way: together with local wine. Swap stories with the family and ask questions about the recipes, ingredients, and Naxian cuisine.
