About Your Host

Being Greek, married to a French, living in Brooklyn and having spent a substantial amount of my life in Athens and London, I myself am ‘a citizen of the world’. But, I think I was that thing long before I moved to New York. I was raised in Athens, Greece but was born in Cyprus by a Cypriot dad and a mom born and raised in Cairo by a Greek family, originally from the Greek island complex of the Dodecanese and Smyrna, the great Levantine city, today’s Izmir. Add to that my husband, whose parents are originally from Spain, Tunisia, Algeria and the South of France and you have the perfect Mediterranean mélange. Hence, my culinary influences are diverse and rich. The aromas in my kitchen range from Cypriot halloumi cheese pies to French chocolate mousse, but the traditional Greek cuisine and my family recipes, going back to four generations, are really my one and only solid base. The passion I have for food and cooking comes from my natural love for long and loud family lunches & dinners, where food is not fancy, but delicious, home cooked and simple – sometimes elaborate - but always made with love! This is my favorite social experience; it engages all five senses and leaves you with a story to tell afterwards! My dream is to inspire people to experience everyday cooking as something fun, easy and convivial.

What we'll do

Traditionally, the Greek family would gather after church to enjoy a rich meal (and some drama!) that would be followed by a siesta in the living room! Nowadays, these gatherings are more rare, but whenever they happen a special menu is prepared in the kitchen. In this lesson you will learn how to prepare a full Greek menu for your friends and family without spending all the day in the kitchen! This lesson will cover: Wild greens salad {horta ladolemono} (vegetarian, vegan & glutenfree) Slow roasted parchment wrapped shanks {arnaki sti ladokolla} (glutenfree) Greek fries {patates tiganites} (vegetarian, vegan & glutenfree) Milk pie {galatopita} (vegetarian)
