Description

Easter is a time where most Greeks will fast in order to get communion (if you are very traditional that means 40 days on a vegan diet), so it is a huge feast time on Easter Sunday where fasting is over and done with.  Most people fast for a week.  This therefore means, each family will bake their favourite biscuits, cakes to over indulge in on the Sunday.  This can vary from region to region but a few stables remail the same - for instance, kourabiedes (Greek shortbread with almonds), koulouria (tea/coffee biscuit) and melomakarouna (honey cakes).

Baking in this class will certainly include one of the stables but a few extras which will vary in each class to give variety.  This class will take approximately 3 - 31/2 hours to complete.

My Greek Kitchen

Vendor sincce 2013

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.
