GREEK VEGETARIAN COOKING CLASS


LEARN GREEK IN JUST FIVE HOURS!

Mediterranean cooking has a well-deserved reputation for being one of the world’s healthiest cuisines. We’re talking lots of fresh, colourful fruits and vegetables, plus olive oil and the occasional glass of red wine. Then there are the herbs, the honey and the unpasteurised goat’s cheeses – plus a little more olive oil. It all adds up to a diet that’s low in saturated fats, rich in antioxidants and gives Greek people their legendary vitality and longevity.

Now you can learn the secrets of Greek Vegetarian Cooking in our special one-day class. Experience the aromatic scents and delicious flavours of Greek cooking – not the insipid “Greek salad” that so many restaurants serve, but real Mediterranean food made the way the Greeks have for centuries.

Close your eyes for a moment and picture olive groves, brilliant white houses with blue doors and shutters, and the sparkling sea. We’re about to embark on a culinary odyssey around the Greek islands, sampling classic recipes and doing our best to pronounce them!

Since ancient times, Greeks have known the benefits of eating a largely plant-based diet, and many of their most famous dishes reflect this. Here at Leafy Greens, we’re often inspired by the key ingredients of Greek cuisine, and we love experimenting with ways to get the best from lemons, bay leaves, various goat’s cheeses, yoghurt, walnuts, olives, basil, honey, garlic, sage, thyme and oregano – to name but a few.

By attending this class, you’ll learn how to make these classic dishes:

  • MOUSSAKA, aubergine casserole
  • SPANAKOPITA, spinach and feta in phyllo pastry
  • XORTA, delicate leafy greens with olive oil
  • PAPOUTZAKIA, stuffed courgettes
  • SAGANAKI, fried halloumi cheese with lemon
  • XORIATIKISALATA, traditional village salad
  • SAMOS BAKLAVA - walnut dessert
