Hello! My name is Paulina and I was born in Athens. I used to live and work in the city, until 1994, the year I decided to spend my vacations in Paros and stay in Lefkes. When I arrived in Lefkes, I fell in love with this place from the very first moment. I had to find a way to stay in this village and decided to give it a try and do my own business. A year later, I was running my tiny family restaurant in Lefkes. Sweet smelling kitchen, is still tiny (7 tables) but very well known for homemade Greek cooking and hospitality.
Last year, my Airbnb guests have rewarded my services as a superhost.

We really enjoyed the experience cooking with Paulina, who was friendly and welcoming. It was great to see the making of the bread and the phyllo zucchini pie (which were both delicious) while getting to know Paulina in her cozy restaurant. Since getting home a couple of days ago I have already baked bread using flavours from Paulina's recipe and will be trying my hand at phyllo this weekend!

Highly recommended! Paulina and her mother provide a unique experience to learn baking in their historic home in Lefkes. The setting is magical, and the experience truly one-of-a-kind.

Paulina and her mother were wonderful hosts! They welcomed us into their home and restaurant like family. They showed us how to make the bread with great tips we will take with us now that we are home. I told Paulina it was my boyfriends birthday and she made wonderful sweets to add to the delicious food served!

We loved this experience. We got to spend time with Paulina (who was also our host) and her mother to observe and learn how they make their bread and phyllo dough. We learned some tricks and can’t wait to make these recipes at home. It was great to see how you can easily make phyllo dough and what delicious things you can creat with it afterwards. After, we got to enjoy some freshly baked bread and some delicious phyllo pie. While waiting for the bread to cool and the pie to bake, we sat outside on the patio with our hosts and had coffee, all while getting to know each other. It felt like we were just sitting around with family. It was a relaxing and fun experience!
