Meet Angelina (Mykonos)

Angelina's interest in cooking was sparked as a teenager as she watched her grandmothers and mother cook in their Greek kitchen. After her studying sociology Angelina worked as a journalist, has published a magazine and taught media in the past. She has traveled around the world and it was during her time living in South Korea in the 90's that she started offering Greek cooking classes. An active food blogger, member of Slow Food International and a member of the Mykonos Gastronomic Club, Angelina is passionate about sharing forgotten Greek and Mykonian recipes featuring locally produced and seasonal ingredients with her guests. One of her passions is discovering traditional island cheeses, small wineries, and microbreweries and she loves sharing her insider knowledge with her guests.

What to expect

Please note menu might vary. If there are particular dishes you are interested in trying, please include your request in the booking form.

In-home meal: (2-8 guests) Enjoy a traditional Greek meal at Angelina's dining table, or outdoors when the weather is good. Angelina focuses on Mykonian produce and seafood caught off the island's shores. Your authentic Greek meal will start with meze (appetizers) such as taramosalata, saganaki (a soft, fried cheese), tzatziki (yoghurt dip), spanakopita (phyllo pastries), gigantes plaki (giant beans in a tomato sauce) and be followed by a Greek salad, a main dish such as grilled calamari crowns with basil pesto or a whole fish or lamb and potatoes or garides saganaki (prawns in fresh tomato sauce with feta cheese) or revithada (a chickpea dish from the nearby island of Sifnos, slow-cooked in a clay pot) or the traditional moussaka, perfectly cooked.

For dessert, try Angelina's homemade karidopitta (sticky walnut cake) with ice cream or a super easy baklava that you will have made together or a semolina halva with spices and homemade citrus jelly.

Cooking experience: (2-8 guests) Learn to prepare a traditional Greek meal and a few local specialties in Angelina's kitchen in this Mykonos cooking class. When weather permits you might cook outdoors in a shaded barbecue area. During your hands-on cooking lesson Angelina will teach you how to handle filo dough with ease preparing together both savory as well as sweet dishes like feta parcels with honey and sesame (or spanakopita if there is fresh spinach available) and the easiest baklava. She will also show you how to prepare a greek meze table that includes putting together the myconian “mostra" with the local kopanisti cheese, olives and taramosalata or other tasty bites.

As you learn to cook with a small ouzo in hand, Angelina will help you understand Cycladic island gastronomy. You will discover how less becomes more in the Greek island cuisine, turning the limited produce of the islands into a deeply satisfying meal. Your lunch or dinner will include additional dishes that Angelina will have prepared in advance. You can expect to cook and talk for about an hour before you sit down to share the meal you helped to prepare.

Market visit: (2-4 guests) Explore the local Sunday farmer's market in Ano Mera square. Angelina will introduce you to the local fresh produce and products and explain the specialty items that are produced exclusively on Mykonos. After wandering the open-air vegetable market, bakery and the nearby super market (for a brief tasting at the cheese counter), and picking up a few items that you will cook together for your meal, you will drive to Angelina's beautiful countryside villa with a view of the ocean. The drive takes about 10 minutes.

Please note that this experience is only offered on Sundays when the market is open.

Notes: Angelina hosts in two homes, one in Lia and one in Chora, depending on the size of your group. For groups 4 or fewer, she host in Chora and if your group is 5+, Angelina will host you at her Lia house.

Angelina is only available on Mykonos in the summer months, from June - October, and she has limited availability. Angelina suggests booking transportation with her at an additional cost, as Mykonos roads are tricky and they live in the countryside, making it difficult to reach her. A driver with a car (or mini van if there are many) will pick you up from your hotel or boat and return you safely after the experience, in case you choose to book transportation at an additional cost. If you choose the paid transport add-on, pick-up is 30 minutes prior to the start of your experience.

If you are looking for a place to stay, Angelina has a private villa that she rents in Mykonos. Please email us for more information.

Traveler reviews

My wife and I had the opportunity to spend an evening cooking with Angelina. It was without a doubt one of the highlights of this trip (or many others we've taken before). We were picked up and whisked away to her beautiful home, which is on a quiet SE side of the island with an incredible view to the water. She had tasty mezzes prepared for us when we arrived. We then learned how to cook several dishes. She was flexible but clear in her teaching and would allow us to watch her or to do things ourselves. We made dinner and then took a 'break' to eat the amazing food. Finally we made dessert and ate that too. We had a lot of fun spending time with her and her husband Soren...frankly we enjoyed meeting and chatting with them just as much as the "class" itself. We talked about food, life, travel, and more. We ended up staying a bit later than the original time but never felt rushed. Anjelina herself is passionate about not only the final product but the process itself. She is sweet and caring and skilled, and you can see that in every minute you spend with her. We just had a really wonderful night. Thanks to Traveling Spoon for offering this experience.

From the moment we were picked up from our hotel in Mykonos, to the moment we were dropped off, the experience was exceptional - she and her husband, Soren, welcomed us with warmth and graciousness into their stunning villa with unobstructed views overlooking the Aegean. Angelina taught us how to make Spanakopita (as per my request). She had all the ingredients perfectly chopped and ready to go. The experience was completely seamless - Angelina is a professional! She explained and demonstrated what to do, while fluttering around the kitchen so gracefully, topping off our glasses of chilled rose, while simultaneously grilling the lamb and the other delicious dishes she had pre-prepared for our lunch. Their home is bright and welcoming. While cooking in the kitchen, the door is open and all you see if the various blues of the sea and sky. The terrace views are incredible and beyond anything I had anticipated when I signed up for this cooking experience. This is truly a high end and high touch experience, and I feel honored to have met Angelina who is very much involved in the culinary scene in Mykonos. She is a wealth of knowledge about the history, culture...and most importantly a food guru :-) Thank you to the Traveling Spoon. I will search for a culinary experience wherever I go. We had the best time!

Dinner with Angelina and her husband in Athens was our third Traveling Spoon experience, and each one has been so special and each seems more interesting than the previous. There were four of us in our party, and as soon as we arrived we felt like we had been invited to old friends for a meal. Everything was naturally Greek, and many had ingredients we cannot get in US nor in fact had heard of before. The whole time while she was cooking her delightful, well travelled husband served us wonderful Greek wine. Angelina is quite well known in Greece, blogs on Greek food, is often on television talking about food, and cooks for many events both in Athens and abroad. Dinner with Angelina was one of the highlights and best memories of our trip to Greece. Thank you Traveling Spoon.
