Come enjoy 3 hours of hands-on Greek cooking in Calliope's kitchen in Brooklyn! You'll learn all about a cuisine based on the flavors and traditional recipes that her great grandma Finia, grandma Calliope and mom Anna have always cooked. Journey into Calliope's family’s true love for good quality, home cooked meals.
The Mediterranean diet is about a pattern and not individual foods; meat may not be consumed on a daily basis, but it is a favorite in Greece and is cooked in a variety of creative ways. Lamb, goat, and pork dishes are abundant in the Greek cuisine, depending on the season and the occasion. During your lesson you will practice some simple recipes and ideas of how to cook and pair them in your everyday cooking. You'll prepare lamb casserole in red wine and light garlic aromas (arni sti gastra), slow cooked goat (kleftiko), spicy country sausages and peppers in tomato sauce (spetzofai), and pork tenderloin with leek and celery root (hirino me prasso).
You will get to taste all of the dishes you helped prepare in class as well as take home some of the dishes cooked. The deliciousness doesn't end there--you'll leave with a booklet of family recipes and new, in-depth culinary information so that you can recreate these dishes at home.
Note: Beginners are welcome, but foodies and experts can also profit from these lessons by exploring a more down to earth cooking philosophy and expanding your recipe portfolio.
