A hands-on cooking class culminating in a family-style dinner served with wine and beer.

Spanakopita is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the world of Greek pies. Having pita in your cooking repertoire means you have an economical, crowd-pleasing, adaptable meal at your fingertips. Join us and learn a variety of Greek pies and fillings and how to make your own phyllo at home. Learn about Greek culture and cuisine beyond the stereotypical Greek salad, moussaka, or tzatziki which only represent a very small fraction of everyday Greek cuisine. 


Spanakopita - spinach and feta 
Prasopita - leek
Tiropita - cheese in whole wheat pastry
Sfakianopita  - Cretan cheese pie with honey
A Greek salad will be served to round out the meal
