Cooking Demo

Learn the secrets to making your own delicious Greek feast. Regularly scheduled cooking demonstrations will take place throughout the festival. Greek cuisine has a history which stretches back over 3,000 years. It is strongly influenced by its geography and rich history. Greek customs and traditions have been tied closely to religion since ancient times, and with each custom, some food has been associated. Great pride is taken in entertaining and preparing the feast for these special celebrations. The Greeks' zest for living, their love of music and dancing, and hospitality are all reflected in their hearty approach to good eating.
Some of the most basic ingredients for any Greek meal includes the following: fish, poultry, lamb, eggs, olives, olive oil, cheeses, fresh vegetables, rice, bread, butter, fresh lemon, garlic, honey, seeds, nuts, fresh herbs and spices.
We want to share with you our expertise in making some of our favorite dishes so that Greeks and non-Greeks alike may enjoy the art of Greek cuisine.

This year the cooking demonstrations will feature Cooking Cousins Anna Kozas and Theo Madias of the Nativity of Christ Greek Orthodox Church.

They will be preparing Melomakarona with Syrup and Tiropeta with Skordalia. Both items made from family recipes handed down from generation to generation..


We will also have Krystina Kalapothakos and Pamela Kockos Merchant giving demonstrations
