Class Description

Description

What you'll learn in this international cooking class:

In this 2.5 hour interactive online experience Despina will guide you through making three of her family recipes. During your class, you'll prepare Despina's kotopoulo me patates sto fourno (roast chicken thighs with lemon and potatoes). Then, you'll learn how to make horta (boiled wild greens salad) and halva (olive oil cake with raisins and walnuts).

Since Despina can’t physically welcome you into her home, she wants to do so virtually!

Our online classes are designed to be special, meaningful opportunities to share cooking, culture, and connection--just like our real life experiences. We want you to cook along, and we promise there will be plenty of time for questions, conversation, and stories. It will all end with a virtual dinner party where you'll get to share in the fruits of your labor, apart, but together!

    I really enjoy learning ethnic cuisine from people who are from the actual place. It was lovely to learn authentic Greek cooking from a native of Greece. Loved the recipes and chatting with Despina and her daughter/granddaughter? Would like to take another class from Despina.
