Learn to make Gemista (Rice filled vegetables)
A popular Greek dish - vegan & vegetarian friendly
Join us in this hands on interactive class where you will cook along side your host Kelly from The Hellenic Odyssey, while in the comfort of your own home. Kelly is a Greek home cook with a proud heritage, who loves to share her knowledge and passion for Greek food.
In this online class you will learn how to prepare one of the most popular and traditional authentic Greek dishes, Gemista. This is the type of food that you would expect to find in the kitchen of a Greek family home.
A much loved dish, gemista, are a variety of vegetables filled with a rice mixture. This will be the vegetarian version, therefore it will be suitable for vegetarians and vegans also.
Greek food is not only about sharing food and passing down recipes taught from grandmothers and mothers but it also ensures the recipes are not forgotten. It also follows deeply seeded traditions that imply that one’s home is a welcoming and hospitable environment which is open to all.
Some of our fondest memories involve food because of the strong sensory relationship we have with it. The flavours and aromas, the textures and the visual appeal of beautifully presented dishes are linked to the sweetness, the tastiness, the crunch and all that is part of this banquet we call life.
We look forward to connecting with you and creating fond culinary memories by transporting you to Greece even if it is just for a moment.
