The Mediterranean Garden: Classic Greek Recipes
Saturday April 27th, 2019
11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Instructor: Jennifer Hostetter
Greek food is among the most cherished and delicious of Mediterranean cuisines. It’s also prized for being highly nutritious, with an emphasis on fresh, seasonal produce and deeply-flavored, anti-oxidant rich olive oil. In this class, we’ll celebrate the flavors of Greece as we prepare various sweet and savory dishes, including Stuffed Grape Leaves with Tzatziki Sauce, Traditional Greek Salad, Fresh Pita Bread and the iconic and delectable Baklava.
Adults of drinking age are welcome to bring their own alcoholic beverages to enjoy during the class, if desired. Suggested pairings: Light-bodied red or dry white wines, particularly from Greece or the Mediterranean, rosés, sparkling wines, or light and crisp lager or pilsner beers. And if you’re feeling really adventurous, bring some Greek Ouzo or Raki, the traditional anise-flavored spirits enjoyed throughout the islands.
