Ikaria Cooking & Longevity Workshop with Georgios and Eleni

Ikaria cooking and longevity workshops, shows you the way to live healthy and longer. Life experience and tasty food from a Blue zone.

Join us for two very special workshops at the Lemon and Sage Artisan Kitchens. Our guests, Georgios and Eleni, are traveling all the way from Greece to share the centuries-old cooking philosophies of Ikaria- directly connecting food with health and longevity-with you!

This workshop is a “package” of 4 things under one event. 1) Cooking classes of the Ikaria cookery – full presentation of the special way to cook without “killing” the nutrients 2) A full meal with wine or other beverage, and the way of how we dine in a Blue zone 3) Information about proper food and how proper foods can benefit health by developing the gut microbiome 4) Tips for healthy living and longevity.

The traditional diet of Ikaria is plant based and it is considered as the healthiest and one of the tastiest cuisines in the Mediterranean area. The cookery of Ikaria, even though it is a Greek island, has significant differences from the other Greek cuisine as it is mostly plant based recipes. The cooking methods are also unique as there is no frying, no grill and food will be prepared in the lowest possible temperature.

The recipes in the workshops will be vegan and vegetarian, focusing on preparing foods like legumes, vegetables and pies. Making filo from scratch. Making sourdough bread from scratch. Making vegetable pasta from scratch. Using organic whole grain flour, organic legumes and other ingredients, we will cover not only main dishes but also dips, cookies and ideas for healthy breakfasts. Participants can come either one both days as different recipes will be shared each day.

Instructors: George and Eleni Karimalis
