Mama's Flavours

Hello everyone! I welcome you to my beautiful country Greece! I am Maria Monastirioti and I come from Lefkada and Corfu, two of the most beautiful islands in the Ionian Sea! My job profession is a librarian but since 2014, I have been working on Mama’s flavours, a Social Enterprise specialized in travel experience and gastronomy tourism.

The Experience

Tantalise your taste buds with an exquisite meal!

A 3-hour private dining experience complete with cooking class, to satisfy even the most demanding palates. A renowned Greek head chef prepares and cooks with you a surprise three-course Mediterranean feast in his restaurant, in the heart of Kalamata, using the freshest of ingredients. It’s private dining with friends and family at its finest.

You’ll participate in a cooking class and a private lunch or dinner, prepared by a Greek chef in his restaurant in Kalamata.

Upon request, you may also enjoy the meal in the outdoor area right next to the restaurant or at an olive grove.

You just need to pick the time and place and the chef will prepare a surprise menu just for you, tailored to your individual dietary preferences.

The renowned Greek chef has prepared feasts for many politicians, including Barack Obama, Angela Merkel, François Hollande and Mahmoud Abbas, while he also served as head chef of the former President of the Hellenic Republic.

He has over 30 years of experience and is returning to his homeland Kalamata, where he’ll cook a private meal just for you and your friends or family.

Transfer (Optional)

I live in Kalamata since 2006 with my family which is the capital of Messinia region in the southwest Peloponnese. From the first time I came to this wonderful city, I was impressed of the harmonic combination of the rich architectural and cultural legacy with the modern way of life!

Kalamata for me is the ideal place to live not only as a single but also with your family. It offers a high quality of life, endless fascinating sites to visit, magical sandy beaches to swim, vast olive groves, hidden small villages to explore, and of course a unique gastronomy tradition! 

I would definitely suggest it to every traveller and anyone who wishes to choose Kalamata as a place to live!
