There is no comparison of home made sweets to the ready bought. You will learn how easy it is to make things such as baklava, galatoboureko (custard in filo) and rizogalo (rice custard) with cinnamon.
Home made syrup is nowhere as sweet and certainly a lot fresher and custard is made using fresh ingredients instead of custard powder. You will be surprised how easy it is.

My name is Nicoletta (Niki) Louca and I look forward to assisting you learn about Greek cuisine and cooking. It is so much more than souvlaki and baklava.
From a very young age my sisters and I were always encouraged (actually forced) to learn to cook from our mother and grandmother. Growing up in a Greek-Cypriot household, it was "our duty" to learn to cook. We were taken to farms to get fresh milk,then take it back home to make fresh haloumi cheese and ‘anari’ – ricotta cheese.
I then decided I should do something with this passion, so I opened my own café and catering business from scratch. I did that for a number of years and have since sold the business. I am still involved with food, by way of private catering and private teaching in Greek cooking.
