The Brighton & Hove Food Partnership's Community Kitchen is a cookery school where everyone can cook, learn new skills and enjoy food with others. We want everyone to experience the benefits of cooking and eating together. By paying for a cookery class, you help other people to attend cookery activities, regardless of finance, confidence or ability, and to make lasting changes to their lives.
Join the Head Chef of Nostos in Hove to make a trio of Greek dishes which you can then recreate at home for your family and friends to enjoy. These classic mezze small plates showcase the best of seasonal produce for summer.
Your menu will typically include:
- Kolokithokeftedes - courgette fritters with avocado tzatziki
- Gigantes - butter beans stewed in a rich tomato sauce
- Filo feta nests drizzled with honey and sesame seeds
You will work in pairs as Alex shares his knowledge, professional flavour combinations and chef's cooking techniques and tips. At the end of this class, you’ll enjoy a delicious meal together and go away with full recipes to replicate the dishes at home.
