Join in this educational Greek culinary tour and discover Greece from your kitchen
In this course, Irini will provide an overview of Greek cuisine, following the traditions of Ancient Greek and Byzantine cuisine, while also incorporating Middle Eastern, Balkan and Italian influences.
Greek cuisine is not spicy but the kitchen is always filled with an amazing aroma due to fresh herbs that are used, such as bay leaves, basil, rosemary, thyme and oregano, and also lemons, great red wine vinegar (often home made), and sweet spices such as cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg.
We will touch on the major food groups and key elements from which many dishes are made, before we encounter examples of some of the most iconic Greek dishes. This will include the popular street food dish, souvlaki, a selection of meze, ideal for sharing, and many other dishes that you will enjoy cooking.
This course is intended to inspire you to discover more, and perhaps experiment with Greek flavors and ingredients.
