The word “Mezze” refers to what is known as finger foods and dips. Many Mediterranean meals consist of a variety of “mezze” items that come together creating the most wonderful flavors, tastes and textures. Similar to charcuterie boards, Mediterranean families have been creating charcuterie TABLES for generations consisting of a variety of Mezze items. You  can wow and dazzle your family or guests with a delicious full-flavored mouth watering Mediterranean Mezze meal that leaves everyone asking for more. On the menu: Mediterranean Kebabi; full flavored/seasoned ground meat skewers with Greek drizzle dressing, Tiropitakia; Phyllo wrapped savory cheese triangles accompanied by tzatziki; Savory Greek Yogurt Dip, and homemade Greek white bean dip or hummus, in addition to homemade pita bread. This variety of skewers, phyllo wraps, dips and pita bread make for a beautiful presentation. Learn how to make, wrap, present and plate these delicious wonders with a wonderful Greek salad. Have your questions answered by the instructor and interact with other participants as you cook along with Tess to create a mouthwatering memorable meal. Participants will receive a list of ingredients in advance for shopping and preparation. You'll also receive a copy of Tess's personal recipes in PDF format. As an added bonus, she has created a private and public group on Facebook for participants of her classes. Everyone will receive an invite; joining is optional. The groups will provide an opportunity for members to ask questions, share your own creations, interact with other participants and support each other on your cooking journey. Note: one registration fee for this online class can include participants from the same household only. If children are participating, adult supervision is required.

Instructor

Tess Georgakopoulos, also known as “Chef Tess - Culinary Artist”, has been cooking and baking for well over 45 years since she was roughly 6 years old. Born into a Greek family, the art of cooking traditional meals using ones senses rather than recipes and measurements was passed on from one generation to the next. Her father was also a trained chef who brought the magic of food to life in another form on the weekends as they cooked elaborate family meals together. Food prepared from the heart, with ones own hands and creativity was, and continues to be an expression of love in her home. As an accomplished cook and baker, Tess enjoys creating original recipes for her family and friends. Sweet, savory, or doughy, she enjoys experimenting and creating in the kitchen daily. Tess is proficient and experienced in creating classes and curriculum for conventional cooking, baking, pressure-cooking, air frying, pizza making, Mediterranean Cooking, and meal preparation as well. A Culinary Artist indeed! She has been teaching both in-person and on-line cooking classes through community education for a number of years having worked with over 50 public school districts in and around the Twin Cities, in many corners of Minnesota, in addition to school districts in Wisconsin, Missouri, New York, and Arizona. Through her teaching, Tess has helped people of all skill levels increase their confidence and expand their skills in the kitchen reaching heights of their own personal creativity that they never new existed!

Always working towards expanding her culinary repertoire, Tess enjoys spending much of her free time in her test kitchen creating new recipes and reinventing traditional ones using traditional cooking methods and new cooking appliances such as, the Instant Pot® and Air Fryers too. Tess has recently started writing her first cookbook, and her food blog is also in the works! Some of her creations can be seen on her Facebook page, “Dish it up Good”, https://www.facebook.com/dishitupgood/ or on her Instagram Feed.
