After beginning her classes in a community hall in Paddington several years ago, the ultimate move to larger premises was necessary to keep up with Sydney’s budding love for traditional Greek food and cookery methods. Part of the city’s ongoing fascination with ‘true to the source’ Mediterranean fare.
“As a Greek-Australian I have been thrilled at the level of community interest in Greek cooking and culture since opening Greekalicious in February last year. I have been overwhelmed particularly by the interest in traditional Greek cookery and dishes such as homemade baklava; and cooking on the Skara – the Greek barbeque.”
This was Sydney's first exclusively Greek school dedicated to Gastronomy: an Ancient Greek word signifying the relationship between the senses and food. Greekalicious cooking classes mix ancient Greek and modern styles with Maria Benardis’ passion for regional traditions and her legendary storytelling and lively music bring to life the colourful stories, histories and journeys of Greece.
Classes run for around three hours, and all include authentic Greek dishes cooked with certified organic ingredients from Australia and Greece and a full sit down meal with plenty of quality Australian wine. Classes can be booked online at www.greekalicious.com.au or by calling +61 2 9331 0734.
