This is such a unique opportunity to learn some authentic Greek dishes, some of Thomas’ favourites. The menu is extensive and exciting – this is a small taste of what Thomas has planned for the day…. Greek coffee and Greek Mountain tea with pancakes, feta, honey and cinnamon, a wide selection of mezze dishes of dips and appetisers including an octopus salad and prawn saganaki, main dishes include stuffed calamari, moussaka, spanakopita and he will finish with luscious desserts…..how can you resist it?
Thomas believes that the art of gastronomy is based on the senses and memories of childhood. For him it was growing up in the heart of rich farming lands of Central Greece and embracing the regional food traditions, that inspires his culinary passion.
He considers that Greek cuisine is the use of simple ingredients that create delectable dishes when the correct techniques are applied.
In 2011 Thomas Ritsios decided to pursue his creative passion for cooking by moving to Melbourne, one of the Food and Wine Capitals of the world.
During his many years as an Advertising and Marketing Director in Athens, Thomas had the opportunity to create numerous campaigns, but those related to his zest for cooking were the most intriguing and inflamed his instincts to pursue a new career.
Now Thomas is working in a commercial kitchen as a chef. Thomas’ love for food has brought him new opportunities and a successful career in his beloved cooking industry.
Join us for this special event with Thomas.
