Event description

Description

Noted Greek cook, Magdaline Dontsos, will lead a workshop where we learn how to make some surprisingly easy Greek mezedes -- “little plates” or “snacks”. First will be a hands-on session where we will make dolmadakia, the enticingly scented little parcels of grape leaves stuffed with herbs and rice. Then, Magdaline will demonstrate how to make chickpea “meatballs” -- revithokeftedes. All will be accompanied by some samples of a few other tasty and traditional Greek mezedes. Magdaline will also explain some of the culinary traditions from the two areas of Greece that these delicious "little plates" come from.

Magdaline Dontsos has always loved the culinary arts. As a young teen, her passion for food began when helping her grandmother preserve the “Goodness of Summer” using home grown organic produce and salting locally caught fish. By profession, a Food and Nutrition Manager, she has dedicated her career to education, teaching quantity food production, food chemistry, and nutrition as well as food safety courses. Her passion for sugar arts led her to become a pastry chef and to establish a business in custom made wedding cakes and gum paste treasures -- and she is an award winner wedding cake competitor with the World Master Chefs! Today, Magdaline is a consultant who tailors workshops in the culinary arts and presents lectures on nutrition.

Join Magdaline Dontsos and the Culinary Historians of Canada for this fascinating, fun and tasty exploration of Greek mezedes!
