Since Despina can’t physically welcome you into her home, she wants to do so virtually!
Our online classes are designed to be special, meaningful opportunities to share cooking, culture, and connection--just like our real life experiences. We want you to cook along, and we promise there will be plenty of time for questions, conversation, and stories. It will all end with a virtual dinner party where you'll get to share in the fruits of your labor, apart, but together!
In this 2.5 hour interactive online experience Despina will guide you through making three of her family recipes: keftedes (delicious and tender meatballs flavored with fresh mint, onion, and parmesan cheese), along with a tart and creamy cucumber yogurt tzatziki. You will then learn Despina’s secrets to making the best Greek salad you’ve ever had, made with fresh tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, feta, olives, oregano, and a simple vinaigrette..
Here’s how it works:
After registration you’ll receive an email with the Zoom link, shopping list, equipment list, and recipe packet.

I cannot say enough good things about Despina's cooking class. She makes you feel comfortable the second you walk into her home, and she makes it easy to take part -- even for people like me who never cook. If you have any interest in learning how to cook Greek meals, I'd highly recommend you take her session. Actions speak louder than words, though, and I loved the League of Kitchens experience so much that I'm going back with my mom to learn how to cook Indian food in the near future.”
