Monday Night Cookbook Club 
Monday, 11th March: 7pm

by Christina Mouratoglou

The collection of recipes in the book doesn’t feature one single region but the whole country, from the Aegean Islands to the Peloponnese and Northern Greece. You will discover the different influences form geographic neighbours or historic events, most notably the 400 year rule of the Ottoman Empires and the Venetian possession of the Ionian islands, as well as the religious observances and festivals. Recipes travel from Christmas melomakarona to the traditional Easter bread, tsoureki, from homely artichokes a la polita to savoy cabbage dolmades and signature dishes fit for Sunday lunches like the slow-cooked lamb shank with vegetable briam.

The rules of our CookBook Club are simple. Look through the book, pick a recipe to prepare, and bring the finished dish to our meeting where we will all indulge in a glorious feast! 

Please email us at with your name and mobile number if you would like to join us and we will add you to our WhatsApp group.
