WELCOME  to our Cooking Class Activity Group!  

Hello all,
 
We had a crackerjack of an evening “visiting” Greece on our Mediterranean food journey with 20 adventuresome SIR-souls in September.  We enjoyed Saganaki (grilled halloumi cheese), Greek Salad, Avgolemono (Lemon Chicken Rice Soup), Souvlaki (grilled meat skewers), Tzatziki (yogurt-cucumber sauce), and Baklava (nut, honey in filo dough sheets).  Some said it was the tastiest ever!  Try some – recipes listed below, or visit a Greek restaurant and enjoy for yourself.  Hats off to SIR Ron Knibbs for supplying Retsina (Greek white wine), Ouzo (anise-flavored liqueur) and Greek music.  Thanks, Zorba.  
 
Our cooking venue, Alcosta Senior Center, is undergoing renovations, so we will have to move our next two events.  For October we are partnering with the STEM & Wine Groups for a scientific look at tasting wines with food.  Hitting a sweet spot in each group’s activity. Go to the web site and sign up.  Members only.  For November, we are looking into another cooking locale.  Stay tuned. 
 
 
Thanks, all.
