Greek food is about sharing food and passing down recipes taught from grandmothers and mothers to ensure recipes are always held in families and not forgotten. Greek cuisine is warmly embraced in the Australian dining scene from street food to high end dining.
It also follows deeply seeded traditions of welcoming people to each other’s home to share the love of Greek food.
Family Greek Cooking Class
Greek Cooking Classes embrace this tradition with authentic recipes and nourishing simplicity with the experience of cooking and sharing food. This private cooking class welcomes you to the professional cooking space and home of Hellenic Odyssey, with Greek home cook and founder Kelly Michelakis, who will share her proud heritage and passion for Greek food.
In this cooking class you will explore the contemporary greek flavours with your friends and family as a private group, combining the finest seasonal ingredients with traditional techniques taught by Kelly. You will learn about the ingredients, cooking techniques and of course, the wonderful health benefits the Mediterranean diet is so famous for!
The menu that you will cook and eat varies, depending on the season but can include
A dip such as Fava (yellow spilt pea), Patzarosalata (beetroot and walnut dip), Melitzanosalata (eggplant dip), feta psiti (baked feta dip)
An entree/veg side such as Dakos (barley rusk with tomato and cheese), Maroulosalata (lettuce & dill salad), Fasolakia (green beans), Kolokithokeftedes (zucchini fritters)
