Description: Don't miss this hands-on class with "surprise" where you'll learn not only how to recreate some delicious Mediterranean dishes but also how to choose the best ingredients. You'll be introduced to a variety of uniquely italian and greek cooking techniques—from making delicious Italian Eggplant Parmesan (baked and not fried!) to the perfect Greek salad, to some last-minute delicious antipastos. Plus, this class will have a special guest, Mrs. Demetra Kontoulis (some of you will know her from our Farmers' Market) who will show us how to choose the right Olive Oil, how to mantain its freshness and the best way to enjoy its health benefits.*
Menu: Italian Baked-Eggplant Parmesan, Horiatiki Salata, last-minute delicious antipasto ideas and Olive Oil Tasting Test.
*Extra virgin olive oil is tasty and excellent for your health, but experts say as much as 70 percent of it sold in America is adulterated, or of a lower grade. How can you tell if your brand is the real deal?
