Event description

Description

Join me on Sunday, January 20th for an evening dedicated to the cuisine of Agio Oros (Mount Athos). Located in the easternmost peninsula of Halkidiki (northern Greece), this centre of Orthodox Spirituality has been autonomous since Byzantine times (1054).

Women and children are forbidden to set foot, only monks, clergy and visitors (with approved visas) may enter the area of Agio Oros. I have gone twice for brief visits and I (like many) am in awe of how this transformed this mountainous region into a centre of spiritual retreat.

Agio Oros is boasts of having the sea and mountains, the architecture of the monasteries built on mountainsides, the artistry of the iconography and wall murals.

The northern-Greek winery of Tsantali is the only winery allowed to maintain vineyards on Agio Oros and guests of this special Greek Supper Club will be able to taste these tremendous wines on January 20th. My friends at Kolonaki Group will be pouring the wine.

I've prepared a menu that pays homage to the cuisine of Agio Oros - emphasis on vegetables, legumes, fish and seafood. All the dishes will be prepared using Cretan olive oil from Nisos Importing.

See you at St. Lawrence Market Kitchen on January 21st!

A TOTAL OF 50 SEATS WILL BE SOLD
