Tsourekia in London!

April 18, 2011

Greek Cookery Class is back on Wednesday 20 April 6:00pm-10:30pm with an Easter special but if you’re in London and unable to join the class there is a solution for how to get your Tsoureki in time for Easter, just go towards the end of this post.

On Wednesday’s session you’ll learn to make a traditional Greek Tsoureki, an Easter speciality which is like brioche, but a braided style bread which is sweet. A light meal is included in this class as the baking will take long time and lots of effort.

The class is held close to Liverpool Street/Old Street stations.

We’ll bake together and our teacher is a well experienced cook who’s been making Tsourekia for nearly 40 years. Expect the class to last for 4-4,5 hours. The cost is £40 per person, pre-payment only. The fee includes all ingredients, your meal (which for this occasion will be prepared in advance) and Tsoureki to take home with you for your Easter feast.

Tsourekia

You need to bring 1 clean tea towel to roll the Tsoureki into and take home with you and your drink. That’s it!

It’s very informal, good fun and you get to meet people who share the love of food and cooking together. To sign up, email me back with your name and anyone else you’d like to sign up, friend/colleague/partner on email:

greekcookeryclass(AT)gmail.com

First come first served, limited space only, so please book early to avoid disappointment!! I also offer personalised gift vouchers if you want to give the class as a present.

Looking forward to cooking together some of the best Greek food in London.

How to get Tsourekia without baking them myself?

This option is for Londoners!

We’ve got home-made Tsourekia available, get in touch with us to get your own. Limited availability but place your order soon and we’ll do our best to bake some Tsourekia for you. Delivery or pick up options, for further details contact us via greekcookeryclass(AT)gmail.com

New Year’s Eve Greek Supper Club – NYE London 2010

November 30, 2010

The fear of holidays looming and what to do on New Year’s Eve is a headache for many. So if you want to go out and simply have a great meal and socialise at the same time without being rushed off then you’re at the right place, because we’re having a NYE dinner and you’re invited!

I’m offering a warm atmosphere to my guests with a Greek Supper Club to see off 2010 and welcome 2011. We start on Fri 31 Dec at 7:30pm and finish a few hours later, so if you want to stay for the 12 o’clock midnight and change of the year you’re welcome, but if you want to move on and party around in Shoreditch or walk to the Thames River for the fireworks that works too.

After the success of the Greek Supper Club, I’ve decided to host a NYE Supper Club for those who want to sit down and have a delicious meal without being asked to leave after 1,5-2 hours to give their seats to the next customers and where the food will be plenty and you’ll be able to enjoy conversations and laughs with those around the table.

The dinner will consist of at least 9 courses.

Menu is mainly Greek food with a few Swedish/Scandinavian influences (yes you get all of these dishes):

Starters with the following mezedes:

Baked haloumi with a fig sauce made of Greek dried figs; Melitzanosalata/Aubergine dip; Tzatziki; Reindeer with roasted parsnips; Lagana bread and olives

Main:

Pork fillet with prunes served with rice and Greek roasted potatoes

Salad of fresh beetroot and green leaves with dressing.

Dessert:

Baklava and more dessert surprises.

All dishes and bread are home-made.

For veg option or other dietary needs, request on booking. All of the starters and main apart from some desserts and the bread are already gluten free.

Advanced payment only, £45 per person, all food included, you only bring your own drink.

First come first served, so please book early to avoid disappointment!! I had to turn people away last time so book in time as space is limited.

Book via: greekcookeryclass(AT)gmail.com

Location: We’ll be in between  Old Street and Liverpool Street with good links 24/7 to all parts of London, exact address is disclosed upon payment only and closer to the date of the NYE supper 2010.

I also offer personalised gift vouchers if you want to give the NYE supperclub as a Christmas present to your loved ones.

Press and testimonials:

Your chef Elisavet, devoted to Greek food, has received much acclaim for her traditional home-cooking style. Elisavet’s food was recently served at Riverside Studios at a Greek music and arts festival. She has been featured in Red Magazine, Foodepedia and ITV’s Britain’s Best Dish where Michelin starred chef John Burton Race said her lagana bread is “absolutely first class” and the prawn dish she cooked live on ITV was “cooked to perfection!” Also Eating East has given her food and supper club 4**** stars out of 5 in their review: http://www.eatingeast.co.uk/2010/09/22/greek-foodlovers-supper-club-2/ and Business Traveller US magazine lists both her Greek Supper Club and Greek Cookery Class among London’s top alternative dining places. Finally, Elisavet is the first cook to teach Greek Cooking lessons at Divertimenti Cookery School in London.
