Description
 
Pascha! In the Greek Orthodox faith, Easter is the most sacred observance. The preparations and customs, including traditional foods and large feasts, remain an important part of modern Greek life. Veteran COOKing instructor and wellness coach Frances Vavloukis invites you to celebrate Greek Easter and its culinary traditions with a menu that kicks off with a trio of appetizers – mayiritsa soup (traditional lamb soup), red eggs and tsoureki (traditional Greek Easter bread); horiatki salata (Greek salad made with fresh tomatoes, green peppers, cucumbers, romaine lettuce, onions, feta and olives); roasted legs of lamb with patetes fourno (potatoes roasted with lemon and oregano) and fasolaka (stewed green beans made with fresh tomatoes and onions); and for dessert, karithopita (classic walnut cake drizzled with lemon syrup). Frances always makes COOK guests feel like family, but hey, don’t take our word for it. Ask Frances Vavloukis where to get amazing Greek food in Philly and she’ll answer, “My house!” Recipes will be provided.
