Greeks are renowened for the variety and delicious vegan and vegetarian dishes they have. Most Greeks eat a vegetarian and or vegan diet for at least 1/3 of the year, due to religious reasons.
This class will teach you different ways of using vegetables, other than just steaming them. They are fresh, healthy and very tasty, even kid friendly. These dishes are a meal on their own or can be served as an entree or an addition to any meat or fish of your choice.
We will be making dolmades and other stuffed vegetables, bourghal wheat pilaf with Greek yoghurt and eggplant bake. This class will take approximately 3 hours.

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.
