Join me on Saturday, June 15th as we kick off the summer season with an dinner set in Toronto's Port Lands with Toronto's skyline as the backdrop. This evening will be unforgetable as we watch the sun set over Toronto's skyline, dining outdoors and enjoying a five-course dinner that will capture the essence of Greek evening.
SOUVLA! The centerpiece menu item will be whole lamb on the spit, Greek style over charcoal...a rarity in this city unless you're invited to a Greek friend's home!
I am delighted to be cooking at the historic Cherry Street Restaurant located in Toronto's Port Lands, in what used to be a Toronto Dominion bank. Owner/proprietor Louis Anagnostakos has converted this lanmark into a warm, casual restaurants with a great view of Toronto's skyline.
One of the most enjoyed Greek delicasies is whole rotisserie lamb, slow cooked over glowing embers and here's your chance to have another taste of Greece. This specialty from Roumeli (central Greece) has been embraced throughout Greece and this evening will be your chance to enjoy one of my favourite dishes!
All courses will be paired with Greek wines from Kolonaki Group.
