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.
Influenced by the Turkish tradition, 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. 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 Fried Green Peppers in vinegar sauce & garlic (tiganites piperies), Red beets and walnuts in garlicky yoghurt sauce (pantzarosalata), smoked eggplant dip (kapnisti melitzanosalata), little olive pies (eliotes), and lightly fried zucchini with tzatziki dip (tiganita kolokythakia me tzatziki)
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.
