A Greek taste experience
Now that I have rented premises in the Greek Community, I have the pleasure to invite you to a journey full of taste through Greece!
The famous and prominent entrepreneur and chef Despoina Mavrommati will lead us to the traditional Greek flavours of Christmas and not only. The journey goes through destinations such as Greek Cappadocia, passes from Istanbul, crosses Thrace and reaches Macedonia Greece (Thessaloniki).
The famous chef will chat with us, with suggestions for dishes that you can prepare for New Year's table and discussion on how we can use the Greek products and significantly support the Greek companies that are experiencing a relentless pressure.
Starter: Kete, stuffed bread from the Greek Cappadocia.
Dish: Manti, homemade pasta, stuffed with flavourful beef, seasoned with garlic and oregano in meat broth.
Salad: Politiki (from Greeks who inhabited Constantinople or often referred to as "Poli") with cabbage, carrot and a mystery Greek sauce with secret ingredients, to add a touch of magic….
Main dish: Pork with Plum - a traditional dish from Thessaloniki, served with rice. For those who do not eat pork, chicken is also offered.
Dessert: chocolate pie or Vasilopita stuffed with caramelised almonds and tahini (sesame paste).
Who is Despoina Mavrommati:
