With an easy, warm manner, and a boundless enthusiasm for cooking, Despina will inspire you from the moment you enter her home. The beauty of Despina’s cooking lies in its simplicity and its reliance on the freshest ingredients. You will sit down to a welcome snack of seasonal Greek appetizers, such as Despina’s tangy, succulent stuffed grape leaves, which she will encourage you to dip in yogurt, and her bright, fresh potato salad.
She will serve you Greek mountain tea, a medicinal herbal tea with a mild mint flavor that grows wild in Greece. At the end of the day you’ll go home newly inspired with all the recipes and a shopping guide to Despina’s favorite food markets.
In this 2.5 hour interactive online experience Despina will guide you through making a few of her family recipes. You'll start by preparing fasolada (a hearty soup of Great Northern beans and veggies, flavored with crushed tomatoes, dried Greek oregano, and lots of fruity Greek olive oil). Then you'll bake a full pan of delicious spanakopita (fresh spinach sauteed with dill and scallions mixed with tangy pieces of feta cheese and layered into crispy phyllo)--plenty to share or save for the next day! Finally, you'll learn to make bouyiourdi (tomatoes and peppers layered together with feta and topped with melty kasseri cheese), a savory appetizer eaten with pita bread. It's a vegetarian Greek feast!
