What you'll learn in this food tours class:

We’ve all heard about the Ancient Greeks. Their influence on the modern Western world is formidable; we are surrounded by references to Greek government, art, literature, mythology, philosophy, science… Yet for all our celebration of the Greeks and their achievements, there is one aspect of their culture that rarely gets mentioned in modern times: what they ate.

Let’s go back to the days of Classical Greece: a time when meals could be liquid, cheese went with seafood and the most fearsome warriors were raised on something called “black stew.”

In this class, we’ll learn about Ancient Greek food and the customs, culture and lore that surrounded it. We’ll break down the world’s first health diets and the recipe with the longest name ever written. We'll also taste some ancient delicacies, including the great-great-great grandfather of pizza.

This class is a general overview of Classical Greek food and food culture. No prior knowledge of the Ancient Greeks required!

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.
