Marliena was an incredible host and chef. She is cool and an easy person to deal and chat with. Food was incredible and we cooked with her. It was raining so we stayed indoors but the view of the Acroplis was magnificent. The infrastructure and tools were cool and modern. We loved her company.

Wow! Our cooking class was great! With a view of the Acropolis! Marilena changed up some of the recipes to meat with our requests. We made Mezedes which are like appetizers or small plates. Sooooo good! Our friends, who we traveled with and us are planning a Greek Party with all the foods we cooked. We laughed and drank wine and cooked. One of our best nights in Athens! We would definetly do this again. Marilena and her assistant Artemis were delightful and made the evening something special. Thank you both for a wonderful experience!

Marilena is a perfect host. She has created a vegan menu for us that we cooked together in her beautiful cooking studio. I never thought that grilled eggplants could taste so good. This event was a great addition to our visit to Athens. Thank you Marilena!

I wish I could give Marilena 10 stars for every aspect of this wonderful experience. I booked a special dinner for the 10-year anniversary with my wife. Walking into the space, I was immediately struck by the incredible view of the Acropolis. Then came the food...and it kept coming. Each course was beautifully presented and wonderfully flavorful. It was some of the best food we've had in our month here in Greece. Our conversations with Marilena were also a treat. Whether you're looking for a cooking class or special dinner, you will be happy you chose Marilena and CookinAthens.
