The School of Mediterranean Cookery


Back by popular demand!

The School of Mediterranean Cookery sponsored by Saint Andrew Greek Orthodox Church in South Bend.

As many work to improve our health and state of fitness by making better food choices and adopting smart life-long eating and exercise habits, the Greeks of South Bend want to help lead the charge! Toward this end, we are reinstating our cooking class program initiated by the Hellenic Cultural Society a number of years ago.

The plan is to hold two sessions each year, one in the spring and one in the fall. The 2014 season class dates are May 4 and Oct 26, 3-6 pm and will be held at the Good Samaritan Cultural Center at Saint Andrews. The church address is 52455 N. Ironwood Road, South Bend, IN 46635.

The May class will feature the demonstration and sampling of a complete Greek meal featuring seasonal spring recipes: the very famous and amazing Spanakopita (spinach pie) made with a rich spinach and cheese blend wrapped in crispy phyllo dough, Lamb Fricassee, Lemon Oregano potatoes and an authentic Greek salad. The dessert will be the decadent Karithopita – a super moist cake packed with cinnamon and walnut flavor and bathed in sweet syrup. Attendees will also enjoy traditional “mezethes” (appetizers) wine and fresh fruit – a healthy staple of every Greek meal. And last but not least – freshly baked bread straight out of the oven will accompany the feast.

The audience will watch the demonstrations and  receive all the featured recipes as well as informative literature about the health benefits of the Mediterranean diet and of its staple ingredients. Lots of learning and great food for just $25/person with pre-registration by April 25. Space is limited so we encourage folks to reserve their seat quickly. We will accept last minute attendees as space and preparation permit, for $30/person at the door or after 4/25.
