Greek cuisine is known worldwide for its wide variety of tastes and delicious dishes, of which many of the outstanding are vegetarian. The secrets that have made Greek cuisine popular are the abundant fresh ingredients of high quality, a time-honored use of fresh and home dried herbs and spices and Greek virgin olive oil. Moreover, its basic simplicity in the way of cooking adds to the charm of Greek cuisine, creating many mouthwatering delicacies, both savory and sweet.
We will be using the produce of the region of Pelion and Volos, bought fresh most days, taking our inspiration from this produce and from the classic and local Pelion dishes of the region. The Pelion is a mountainous area, replete with history, where vegetables have long been one of the mainstays of the local cuisine.
Here at our Cooking Workshop, one of our mottoes is “Work is Love in Action”. And we take this seriously. Preparing a meal for the community here is always a group effort, engaging everyone's talents and skills. We cook with care, with love and above all with tremendous enthusiasm.
To ensure that everyone in the group is brought into the the process of each meal, each cooking session starts with an attunement where we check in with each other, to the day, to our task and to the community that will be enjoying our efforts. Please bring any recipes that you want to try out, and we'll include them in the week's menu. We love adapting classical Greek recipes, such as moussaka or stuffed peppers, for vegetarians.
