The Hellenic Odyssey:
“A project created from the heart, driven by a passion for food and inspired by a love for travel”

With a proud Greek heritage, we are driven by philotimo (a Greek word translating to “filos” meaning friend and “timi” meaning honour). For us, it simply means to do the right thing and to give to others.

As the Greece Food and Travel Experts, our aim is to expose you to Greek food through our Melbourne cooking classes and through our travel tours to parts of Greece which are off the beaten track. We focus mainly on Crete; with its authentic food, hospitable locals and rich culture.

  • 5 star review  I loved Kelly's online Christmas biscuit making class. Lots of online cooking classes have ceased since lockdown in Melbourne has relaxed so I was so lucky to come across this class. Kelly is really attentive, patient and friendly. And now I have lovely biscuits to give as Christmas gifts and a new culinary skill to add to my (small) collection. Thanks for a great class, Kelly!

    5 star review  I loved the Ekmek class. Kelly was warm, fully immersed and professional. The class felt effortless. We learnt so much, were transported to Greece and had fun. It was a unique way to spend an evening with my 11 year old son. Quality time and what a treat to consume a delicious dessert afterwards. Thank you Hellenic Odyssey. ❤️

    5 star review  Definitely 5 stars (ignore my previous rating as I hit return before checking the detail)!!! This was my 2nd class with Kelly and it was just as much fun as the previous class. Kelly is very clear and patient making it easy to follow along. My biscuits are not very attractive but they taste wonderful. More practice needed I think!! Thanks Kelly

    5 star review  In November of 2020 towards the end of COVID Melbourne lockdown, our company (staff all working from home) needed a pick me up- we felt a little flat. We needed some extra motivation and also chance to promote further employee engagement during isolation. A Greek cooking class was something different and a fun activity to do! The feedback from everyone who attended was positive. No-one had ever cooking Greek from scratch before so it was a pleasant and rewarding learning experience! Also the food was delicious! I would recommend this class for a fun team bonding activity!

    5 star review  What a wonderful cooking class I participated in last night, learning how to make greek dips and pits bread in a fun and interactive online class. Kelly has built a great community of people around her that love cooking and greek food. I am looking forward to what's coming up next. This was my first class so was unsure as to whether I would keep up but this is all good with a very patient teacher. Thank you

    5 star review  I participated in the zoom class (due to Melbourne Covid lockdown) to learn how to make the most popular Greek dessert Galaktoboureko. Such a fun time learning on this platform. Kelly was a wonderful teacher, very knowledgeable in Greek cuisine. She was informative, helpful and very patient. All participants were assisted as required and she worked at our pace giving easy step by step instructions. Above all our dessert was so delicious, a real hit in my home. Looking forward to more classes whether it be via zoom or in person.
