New Year’s Eve Greekfoodlovers’ Supper Club 2013

December 26, 2013

Baklava

Great food and lovely company is needed to see off the old year and welcome the new! Join us in a warm and intimate setting for Greekfoodlover’s Supper Club on NYE 31 December 2013, where I’ll be cooking all the food and you’ll be sitting down eating a feast of Greek delicacies on New Year’s Eve. If you rather want to go out instead of staying in, but don’t want the hustle and bustle of squeezing your way in a busy and crowded restaurant, or if you have no company for the night, this may be for you! We offer a place where you can eat and socialise on New Year’s Eve without being rushed off your seat, and if you book for one space only, not to worry, nobody sits alone! We share a big table and the menu is here below:

Surprise welcome snack

Mezedes for starters: Roasted winter vegetable soup with Kozani Saffron, Gigantes/Butter beans, GAEA’s roasted ramiro peppers with a spicy almond paste, GAEA’s green Greek olives, home baked spelt bread

Main:

Opt1 Vegan: Lahanodolmades/Savoy cabbage dolma stuffed with rice, bulgur, herbs, pine nuts and walnuts with lemon sauce.

or

Opt2 Meat: Bekri Meze, pork cooked in wine served with bulgur.

Salad for both options: Roasted butternut pumpkin and fennel on a bed of rocket leaves, dressed with Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil, topped with almond flakes.

Desserts:

Baklava and Melomakarona!

Greek herbal tea or filter coffee.

The cost for the supperclub is £50 per person and you get all of these delicious dishes on your plate.

Portions are Greek and generous, all dishes are home made, apart from the GAEA olives and roasted ramiro peppers. BYOB! Limited space so if you want to book for your party or just yourself, get in touch soon to arrange for your payment. (Vegan option available, let me know upon booking which of the two options you wish to have regarding your main). We start 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.

Only free range and/or organic meat is used and Extra Virgin Greek Olive Oil. Our yeast is organic and so is most of the vegetables and spices used in the meal.

Advanced payment only, £50 per person, all food included, you only bring your own drink.

First come first served, as there is limited space book early to avoid disappointment!

Greek Cookery Class has created a three-week course in January 2012 with three full days of cooking and eating: 

In these 3 sessions on 3 Sundays in a row you’ll learn how to cook three of the most popular dishes in Greek cuisine. Each session will last between 4-5 hours, and be held between 1-6pm. We’ll cook together and then have a dinner with the food we’ve made before each participant gets to take a portion home. The course will run on these Sundays: 8, 15 and 22 of January 2012.

Gigantes, baked butter beans

Each class will feature a main dish: gigantes (the baked giant butter beans) which almost is the national dish of Greece, Kleftiko the famous slow roasted lamb and for the finale we’ll do mousaka. The classes are hands-on and you’ll get to learn the skills for the classic Greek dishes that so many of you love and what ingredients to use to make each dish a success.

Greek Brunch Club in London

May 5, 2011

Greek Cookery Class is brunching out! We’re doing a Greek Brunch Club near Columbia Flower Market and a walk away from Brick Lane and Spitalfields markets on Sunday 22 May to celebrate that it’s a year ago since Red Magazine featured me and the famous tyropittakia (=little Greek feta cheese pies).

We’ve created a Greek Brunch menu for this one-off event where I’m cooking and you’re eating, for menu and further details please see below. I’ve included a smoked salmon salad as well, because Greeks love salmon and because I always try to sneak in a little bit of Scandinavia in the menu from time to time.

The Greek Brunch will have some of the most typical and popular “breakfast” delicacies we have in Northern Greece and will keep you going well until after lunch. Just like my Greekfoodlovers’ Supper club offers some of London’s most delicious home-cooked Greek food in a friendly and informal setting where you’re surrounded by other Greek foodlovers, the Greek Brunch club will do just the same.

Menu (yes you get all of these things):

-Tyropittakia (=Greek feta cheese pies)
-Greek Yoghurt with honey and walnuts
-Fruit salad
-Smoked salmon with avocado and salad leaves served with Greek home-baked lagana bread
-Mpougatsa (baked sweet vanilla cream in fillo pastry, with cinnamon and icing sugar on top)

Tea is included and filtered water, you only have to bring your own coffee, we’re very centrally located with several places around offering coffee on the go.

All of this at the price of £20 per person and the portions are Greek i.e. generous!

For veg option or other dietary needs, request on booking.

Advanced payment only.

First come first served, so please book early to avoid disappointment!!
