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.

Traditionally, Greek desserts were made with nuts and honey. Sugar was rare and expensive. Through the years, and with the economic growth the French pastry chefs and their elaborate creations have influenced the Greeks. However, the newest trend – Modern Greek Baking - incorporates olive oil instead of butter in many western recipes, transforming them into healthier ones. During this lesson you will be introduced to basic baking techniques along with simple, but original olive oil desserts, plus a traditional Greek holiday treat. You'll prepare olive oil dairy free cake, olive oil chocolate biscuits, olive oil lava cake, and olive oil and orange flavored holiday cookies in honey syrup (melomakarona).

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.
