Meet Angelina (Mykonos brunch)

Angelina's interest in cooking was sparked as a teenager as she watched her grandmothers and mother cook in their Greek kitchen. After her studying sociology Angelina worked as a journalist, has published a magazine and taught media in the past. She has traveled around the world and it was during her time living in South Korea in the 90's that she started offering Greek cooking classes. An active bilingual food blogger, member of Slow Food International and a member of the Mykonos Gastronomic Club, Angelina is passionate about sharing forgotten Greek and Myconian recipes featuring locally produced and seasonal ingredients with her guests. One of her passions is discovering traditional island cheeses, small wineries, and microbreweries and she loves sharing her insider knowledge with her guests. In the summer months, Angelina works as a private chef around the greek islands in the summer offering villa guests authentic greek cuisine with the best ingredients available. During the quieter winter months, Angelina researches traditional Greek recipes, scouts around the country for small producers, original and special products and organic farmers for her column in newspapers and gastronomic magazines.

What to expect

Please note menu might vary. If there are particular dishes you are interested in trying, please include your request in the booking form.

Cooking experience: (2-4 guests) Meet Angelina at her home where you will find a small meze table laid out with local Greek olives and cheese (Myconian gruyere), a cold herbal tea or fresh fruit juice and a few slices of louza, the local prosciutto and an exquisite Myconian sausage. Angelina will explain the cultural significance of the Cycladic gastronomy and how the few things that grow on this cluster of the Aegean islands, the Cyclades, are all the rave now with their abundance of organic, vegetarian dishes. Next, join Angelina in her small home kitchen and learn to prepare a traditional Greek brunch and a few local specialties during your Mykonos brunch cooking class. During your hands-on cooking lesson Angelina will teach you how to prepare tomatoes needed for both your main dish of kagiana eggs and mostra (the Myconian equivalent of a bruschetta but with kopanisti cheese, olive oil, capers and tomato). After preparing the tomato base, you will assemble delicious feta parcels, cheese wrapped in filo that will bake in the oven. These delicious parcels are served with a drizzle of Greek thyme honey. You will wrap together small spanakopitas with either feta and spinach (if spinach is in season), anthotyro and fine herbs, or minced sausage with green olives, the combinations are endless! Share the meal you helped prepare with Angelina along with yoghurt and fresh fruits and honey (another Greek classic served all day through but particularly popular at breakfast or brunch) and a few other side dishes. You will conclude your brunch with Greek coffee and a spoon sweet. For the optional alcohol add-on, Angelina includes a glass of wine or a bottle of local beer (Mikonu).

Market visit: (2-5 guests) Angelina will meet you at the entrance of the little SeaBus stop pier. From here, you will walk together to the open-air fishmongers and farmers market to discover the local and regional produce of the island. From the stalls you will purchase fresh fish (if available) and shop for seasonal vegetables, fresh eggs and fruits for your brunch. Visit the local bakery for some fresh bread and the butcher for local louza (Myconian prosciutto) and typical Myconian sausage. Stop at a small supermarket along the way to learn about and purchase local cheeses (tyrovolia and kopanisti) for the small cheese pies that you will make. Your market tour will last about 30 minutes after which you walk a few minutes, basked in hand to Angelina's home to begin your cooking class. Please note that the open-air farmers market ends at noon so it is recommended that you start your market tour at 10am.
