Greece boasts an incredibly diverse, ancient and healthy culinary tradition; ask anyone Greek how great their food is, and you’re sure to get a heartfelt love song to their cuisine. A lifelong passionate home cook of Greek food, Tina Bousoulas will share some of her favourite family recipes with you in this fun, hands-on workshop. With winter on its way, Tina has chosen some of her favourite warming Greek comfort foods that it are easy to make.
Proceeds from this workshop will go to Deaf Youth Empowerment; a new not-for-profit organization that works towards creating a brighter future for deaf youth and children while bridging the gap between deaf and hearing communities. Tina is herself deaf, and will be presenting the class with the assistance of an ASL interpreter. Join us for some amazing Greek home cooking, and you’ll also learn how to sign “Bon Apetit”!

A traditional Greek stew of chicken, tomatoes, onions and okra; a quick and delicious main course that’s a snap to pull together.
Quite different than the Middle Eastern sesame-based sweet with the same name, this decadent yet dairy-free Greek pudding is made with toasted semolina, almonds and raisins, and soaked a cinnamon-infused syrup.
Tina’s passion for Greek food is as old as she is. She has a degree in Classical Studies, and was a teacher for many years. These days she also volunteers to help raise money for the Deaf Youth Empowerment project.
Every Monday, The Depanneur invites TO’s best culinary talents to lead fun, hands-on workshops.
