Thursday, October 8th ● 6:30 – 9:00 pm ● “Unchartered Greek ~ Milk Street Class” ● Demonstration Class ● Lelia Gentle – DreamCatcher Farm ● $55.00. There are certain dishes that are familiar offerings in Greek-American restaurants in the U.S. - moussaka, spanakopita, the generic “Greek salad,” and of course the gyro, staple of American county fairs. Greek cuisine has so much more to offer, though. In this class, we’ll venture outside of well-trodden terrain to appreciate the nuance and diversity of Greek cooking. We will make eggplant and beef fricassee, which achieves the coziness of moussaka in the timeframe of a weeknight meal. You’ll transform humble chickpeas into a showstopping side that requires nothing more than standard pantry ingredients. And you’ll learn an easy technique to pack more flavor into a totally different kind of Greek salad, which we’ll personalize with Greek-style vinaigrettes of our own creation. Come to this class ready to expand your understanding of Greek food. Menu: Greek-Style Braised Chickpeas with Honey and Oregano ● Greek Bean Salad with different vinaigrettes ● Flank Steak with Tomato-Eggplant Ragu.
