Greek Food Cooking Class Melbourne

Join Kelly from The Hellenic Odyssey, a Greek home cook with a proud heritage, as we come together to create a generous spread of food and to learn about the Mediterranean diet, its origins and its benefits.

You will learn how to prepare traditional authentic dishes that you won’t commonly find in a Greek restaurant. Instead, it is food that you would expect to eat in the kitchen of a Greek family home.

The Mediterranean Diet is actually a dietary pattern modelled on the eating habits of the Cretans in the 1950s. Nowadays, it is the most comprehensibly researched diet in the world with evidence showing that it is incredibly beneficial for physical & mental health.

The Mediterranean Diet follows 10 basic rules of eating. It not only looks at what we eat but how we eat. It rests on the premise that the very basic act of eating brings people together, it creates a sense of community, it allows for discussion time and it provides enjoyment through the sense of taste. Hence, food forms an important part of the human experience. Food makes us feel, it evokes emotion and memories.

We will put into practice the key element of the diet which looks into how we eat. As the Mediterranean diet places a lot of focus on the role of food within the home environment, we will prepare all the meals together and sit down on the table to enjoy eating together.

We are a small group food and travel tour operator looking to service food enthusiasts. Our aim is to provide cultural and culinary food and tour experiences based on authenticity and connection for everyone.
