Learn hands-on how to prepare a whole lamb roasted on a spit and several side dishes and then dine on this classic meal that has become synonymous with Greece. Your cooking class will take place in Kalyvia, an inland village where many Athenians spend the weekend taking in the natural beauty. The preparation will be explained in detail, including the best wood for the fire, the ingredients in the rub, how to skewer the lamb and the best techniques for basting. You will take part in the entire preparation, an experience that will make the meal that follows all the more memorable. You will also learn to prepare the Greek meze kokkoretsi, a yogurt sauce known as tzatziki and a traditional Greek salad. Once everything is finished, you will dine on your concoctions and a glass of local wine. On the return drive, you will stop for another drink at Lake Vouliagmeni, which natural thermal springs feed.
