Join us on Wednesday, June 2 at 11 AM for The Mediterranean Table – Classic Greek Recipes (Webinar)

Among the jewels of the Mediterranean, Greek cuisine is prized for its incredibly delicious flavor and abundance of healthy ingredients ranging from olive oil and lemons to fresh herbs, greens, and a host of fresh fruits and vegetables. Join Chef Jennifer Hostetter to learn just how simple Greek food is to prepare. With dishes that rely on the freshness of the ingredients rather than on complicated cooking techniques, Greek recipes make an excellent option for busy cooks who want to maintain a healthy diet without compromising on flavor or time. In this class, you will prepare some classic dishes that are so ridiculously tasty that you’ll be amazed at how easy they are to make.

By participating in this program, you can expect to learn:

  • how to cook some classic Greek dishes;
  • basic cooking tips and techniques from a trained chef educator;
  • interesting facts and details about the culinary culture and ingredients of the Greek table.

This program is presented by Jennifer Hostetter and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
