A typical Greek Sunday menu with wine - Wednesday, September 14 (SOLD OUT)

Wednesday, September 14
6pm – 8pm

Traditionally, the Greek family would gather after church to enjoy a rich meal (and some drama!) that would be followed by a siesta in the living room! Nowadays, these gatherings are rarer, but whenever they happen, a special menu is prepared in the kitchen.

In this lesson you will learn how to prepare a full Greek menu for your friends and family without spending all the day in the kitchen!

      Greek meze & salads - Wednesday, October 12 (SOLD OUT)

      Wednesday, October 12
      6pm – 8pm
      $85

      Greek cuisine is a reflection of the country’s rich and diverse culture. Being at the crossing point of East & West, Greece’s great and turbulent history is reflected in its traditional food. Through the centuries, Venetians, Romans, Balkans, Turks, and Slavs have contributed to the culinary culture of this small Mediterranean country.  

      Mostly influenced by the Turkish tradition, the Greek cuisine is abundant with meze: small dishes served with an aperitif.   Hot or cold, spicy or savory they are served in little plates to be shared with everyone at the table, providing variety of flavor and texture. 

      Join us to learn how to make four healthy meze dishes that will impress your guests and will add some variety to your starters’ portfolio.

      • Fried Green Peppers in vinegar sauce & garlic {tiganites piperies} #vegetarian #vegan #glutenfree

      • Red beets and yogurt salad {pantzarosalata} #vegetarian #glutenfree

      • Lightly fried zucchini with tzatziki dip {tiganita kolokythakia me tzatziki} #vegetarian

      • Santorini split peas puree with pita chips {fava Santorinia} #vegetarian #vegan #glutenfree

        6pm – 8pm
        $85

        The Greek Orthodox Church is at the center of the country’s culture. Hence, most holidays in Greece are religious ones. We have more than 200 days of lent: abstaining from meat and products of animals with blood (cheese, eggs, milk, butter etc.), fish and seafood with backbones. Additionally, economic reasons made the traditional Greek diet mostly vegetarian.  Meat was too expensive to be consumed on a daily basis.

        The list of ‘nistisima’, lenten food, is endless. Our ancestors have spent centuries creating delicious, healthy, vegan recipes for you to enjoy in this lesson.
