Cooking Greek’s owner, Katherine Haidar, brings a passion for the traditional recipes of her Greek-born parents to educate students about Greek cuisine. Her hands-on, belly-stuffing classes teach eager pupils the secrets of her traditional Greek family recipes including the trick-counterclockwise stir and epic-poem-in-a-jar. Students learn to prepare entire meals—an appetizer, a main dish with a side, and a dessert––at evening classes running from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. For students less interested in meat-centric meals, Haidar also incorporates vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free classes into her monthly schedule. Peloponnesian protégés will bring home recipes to recreate delicacies such as greek salad, flaming cheese, moussaka, loukoumades, or greek wedding cookies on their own.

During the night classes, Haidar serves an in-class meal to her students to help them resist the temptation to wrap themselves in phyllo dough and roll through vats of honeyed walnuts in a baklava bacchanalia. Check the schedule for available class dates and times.

Cooking Greek

“I don’t want you to just follow the recipe because it’s there,” Katherine Haidar says in an interview on Fox 59. “I want you to add your taste to it.”

Katherine, the owner of Cooking Greek, draws on a passion for the traditional recipes she learned from her Greek-born parents. She began cooking at age 8 and lets that experience shine through while leading hands-on classes.

Katherine also brings that same dedication to authentic Mediterranean tastes to her adjoining eatery, where diners welcome plates filled with bites of roasted lamb, garlic, and eggplant. Many entrees are gluten-free; chefs infuse their signature lemon chicken with a blend of citrus and greek spices, and stuff dolmades with a wheat-free combination of rice, beef, and vegetables before tucking them into the oven.

A fun time with three friends. We went as a subgroup in the class and really enjoyed the instructions, food we made and take-home recipes.
