During the class you will hear interesting stories about Georgia, its culture and inhabitants.

Best cooking class!
We booked the class in the morning for 1 pm class. The hosts were waiting for us by the door to make sure we were in the right place. They were so warm and accommodating. The class was in both English and Russian. I speak broken Russian and it turned out to be very entertaining. You get to cook authentic Khinkali and Khachapuri and drink homemade white wine which was fantastic. 2.30 h gone so fast! We learned a lot and could say that this is one of the highlights of our stay in Tbilisi. Do not hesitate to book a class with these 2 amazing hosts!

Amazing household Georgian cooking class
What a good time spent with the senior couple who taught us making Khinkali and Khachapuri (My first Khachapuri from my own hands).

They are obviously very good at this and know what they are doing. The whole class is smooth and they even accommodated our last min request of changing the ingredient of Khinkali.

A lovely cozy home and very well equipped kitchen. I would say it is very professional from a household standard and I would really recommend to go to this cooking class as part of your trip!!!

Georgian hospitality and Georgian food at its best
Always when abroad, I am booking regional cooking classes, as it is always funny, interesting, and brings you to the people of the country.

But this course was exceptional in every way.

The two hosts were easy and friendly, the cooking run beside.

Also the time was running, as 2,5h were estimated, but in the end it was 3,5h, but was far away from „too long“ or „boring“.

It was my very best cooking class ever, and the two meals we’ve made are on the top list of Georgian food.

I can’t recommend more to book this course!

Master class with locals
Mar 2020
We booked the cooking class kinda last minute for 8 PM and it worked out great. Started with Khinkalis, dough and meat was prepared for us we stretched the dough, filled and wrapped them then headed straight to the kitchen to cook them.
Second meal was the Ayarian Khachapuri, same story as before, dough was prepared we streched and filled them then headed straight to the oven.
Recipies, tips and ticks were all handed out to us, great class, thank you.

warm-hearted hosts and a delicious experience
Mar 2020
We really enjoyed the cooking class. The two hosts were absolutely cordial. We were able to cook really tasty and typical delicacies in a humorous and relaxed atmosphere. If you ever feel like having a slightly different holiday experience that is really worthwhile, I can only warmly recommend it. If we go to Tbilisi again, we will definitely do it again.

A very authentic and memorable experience
Feb 2020 • Solo
I booked this experience last minute and so glad I did. The couple were very welcoming and greeted me warmly on arrival. I was by myself however they still made an effort and took the time to show me how to make the traditional Khachapuri and Khinkali dishes.The dough was already prepared but with Irina's expertise I was gently guided to prepare the dishes by myself. Irina and her husband were very patient and kind and take great pride in what they do.
I would highly recommend this experience when visiting Tbilisi.

Cooking Georgia's Iconic Dishes
Having been a massive fan of Georgian food for many years the opportunity to learn how to cook two of the most famous, and delicious, Georgian dishes was irresistible. The class is conducted by Guri and Irina and they made us feel comfortable immediately with their welcome and enthusiasm for the dishes.

The class begins with an excellent glass of Georgian wine, the perfect tonic to settle any nerves. We then launched into making an Ajarian khachapuri, surely one of the greatest dishes ever created. The dough is prepared beforehand to save time but the recipes are provided at the end of the lesson along with a detailed description of the steps involved. Don't worry, it isn't that complicated. After making, baking and eating the khachapuri we moved on to the khinkali.

Again the dough was prepared in advance to save on time but, as with the khachapuri, the recipe is given at the end of the lesson. Whilst our efforts might not have been restaurant quality Irina was always there to give guidance and encouragement. As they say the proof is in the eating and they were delicious.

The decision to do this cooking class was a last minute thing primarily driven by the fact we took the overnight train to Tbilisi from Yerevan and, as such, were never sure when in the morning we might actually arrive in Tbilisi. We therefore needed something to fill in the day without a start time we couldn't be sure of making. Having said that I am very glad we chose this cooking class. I loved my time in Georgia and fully intend to come back with other friends. When I do so I intend to strongly recommend they do this course. I will happily do it again with them when the time comes.
