What you'll learn in this culinary (meals) class:

Learn to make fragrant keftedes (Greek meatballs), tzatziki sauce, and xoriatiki salata (a traditional Greek salad)!

Since Despina can’t physically welcome you into her home, she wants to do so virtually!

Our online classes are designed to be special, meaningful opportunities to share cooking, culture, and connection--just like our real life experiences. We want you to cook along, and we promise there will be plenty of time for questions, conversation, and stories. It will all end with a virtual dinner party where you'll get to share in the fruits of your labor, apart, but together!

In this 2.5 hour interactive online experience Despina will guide you through making three of her family recipes: keftedes (delicious and tender meatballs flavored with fresh mint, onion, and parmesan cheese), along with a tart and creamy cucumber yogurt tzatziki. You will then learn Despina’s secrets to making the best Greek salad you’ve ever had, made with fresh tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, feta, olives, oregano, and a simple vinaigrette..

Here’s how it works:

  • After registration you’ll receive an email with the Zoom link, shopping list, equipment list, and recipe packet.
  • At the scheduled time of your class, you’ll click on the Zoom link and join your class live! Afterwards, you will receive a link to a video recording of your class that you can revisit at your leisure.

  • 1 ¼ lb ground beef
  • 2 small English cucumbers
  • 2 cups Greek yogurt

I really enjoy learning ethnic cuisine from people who are from the actual place. It was lovely to learn authentic Greek cooking from a native of Greece. Loved the recipes and chatting with Despina and her daughter/granddaughter? Would like to take another class from Despina.
