What to expect
Learn how to cook “Tave Kosi”, one of the most Delicious and Unique Albanian Dishes. Visit our Cooking Class in Tirana and learn more about Albanian Food. The interesting fact behind it is that it was called also as the “Independence Dish” as was one of the most favorites ones of Ismail Qemali, the first Albanian Prime Minister after the Independence at 1912. For a better taste, it is preferable to be eaten warm in its own bowl. You can be easily cooked all year because of the easily to find ingredients. It is very easy to prepare the dish and can be cooked either with lamb or veal meat, although the traditional recipes is based on lamb.

Homemade Cherry Lemonade - YUM!!
Jul 2021
The cooking class was an exceptional experience that I will never forget! The food preparation and tasting included an appetizer, two main entrees, and a dessert - all of which tasted heavenly and seem easy enough for me to make on my own at home. The beverage options were homemade wine/raki or a cherry lemonade - I had the latter, which had a touch of sweetness and was very refreshing. The conversation, and subsequent knowledge acquisition, about Albania's culture and history was the "icing on the cake". I highly recommend this cooking class (and anything else offered through Go Local). They are professional, reliable, and go out of their way to ensure you have a positive and welcoming experience.

Awesome Cooking Class
May 2021
First of all, if you're thinking of visiting Albania, DO. It's an amazing country with beautifully welcoming people. After a week in Tirana, my girlfriend and I decided to take a cooking class with Andi and Sindi. The setting and food were both awesome. From making traditional food in their kitchen (catered to accomodate a food allergy) to trying traditional Albanian fruit juice and kefir and some super-interesting Albanian honey, it was a wonderful look into the people and food of Albania. Sindi did a great job of showing us how to prepare the food, and Andi had wonderful stories behind everything we were making and using. We would highly recommend their cooking class, and we'll be back soon to try one of their hiking trips. We can't wait to visit Albania, and the GoAsLocal crew, again. )))

My Cooking class in Tirana
Cindy was a great hostess and was very knowledgeable about Albanian traditional food. I learned a lot from her and recommend everyone that has a passion for good authentic Albanian cuisine to take her class. Her brother also does the city food tour so you’ll be able to hit both angles of the Albanian experience!

Outstanding food, class and company
Feb 2020
I've been raving so much about this class to friends and family over the last 24 hours I almost forgot to write this review! Thank you Sindi and Andi for introducing me to your delicious food and for your creating a relaxed and classy cooking experience for visitors. From the point of booking up to the very end of the class you've been superb, professional and fun, especially too a party of one. I appreciated all of the personal touches throughout the class and have even picked up a clay pot to be able to recreate everything I've learned back home. Encouraging everyone to do spend time with Andi and Sindi on their next trip to Tirana and get introduced to Albanian food and culture in a memorable way.

Delicious Dishes & Excellent Experience
The cooking class run by go as local was fantastic. The amount of food and drink for the price is outstanding. You definitely won't go home hungry. We had a vegetarian in our group and go as local was incredibly accommodating, even down to washing boards and knives in between courses to avoid cross contamination. It was a wonderful afternoon and I'd highly recommend anyone who is interested in Albanian culture or cuisine to give it a go.

Fun Private Experience
Jan 2020
I booked this class for my girlfriend and I; mainly to boast about my cooking skills and how much more superior they are to hers. Alas, her traditional Albanian cooking won (I still liked mine better). Andi and his sister Sindi were a joy to spend time with. We cooked a few traditional Albanian dishes while conversing over some red wine. A time well spent. I would recommend this to others.
