Greek Cooking Class -01
Although you won’t find a Greek restaurant on every street corner like your local ‘Chinese’ or pizza joint, Greek cuisine can claim to have written the earliest known cookbook, dating back to 320.bc. Greek cuisine’s roots run deep and it’s seemingly infinite number of islands and regions yield a diversity of cuisine that is both meze-merising (sorry) and highly underrated. We have chosen a meze (taste) menu for this Greek cooking class to give you just that. From the grills of the island coastlines, to soul food of the mainlands countryside; Greek Mezedes will have you head over heels.
Here’s what’s cooking…
tiganito halloumi (pan fried halloumi, hazelnut) (gf)
spiced lamb and pine nut stuffed dolmades (gf)
patates riganates (Greek style lemon roasted potatoes)
kalamarakia (char-grilled marinated squid) (gf)
wine pickled red grapes, greek feta (gf)
patzaria salata (baby beet salad with smoked almond and dill) (gf)
creamy white bean skordalia
loukoumades (deep fried dough balls, infused thyme honey syrup)
"We attended the Greek Meze cooking class last night and even though we are Greek and do a little Greek cooking we learnt we were shown how to new take on spice up some old favourites.
It was very hands on which was great as we got to prepare and dress our plates instead of just watching.
Can't wait to try out all the new recipes on family and friends.
Thanks to Reanne and Jack will be back.
