Looking for things to do at home with friends or virtual team building activities? Transport yourself to Greece with The Hellenic Odyssey's live-streaming Greek baking class!

In this online class, you will learn how how to prepare Greek baked goods that you would expect to find in a Greek bakery from a friendly expert and home cook Kelly. You will be guided through the step by step baking process and learn some of Kelly's best tips and tricks along the way. You will learn a range of recipe variations and ideas to adapt or build on these recipes if you want to get creative with ingredients and flavours.

In this online baking class, you will learn how to prepare these two treats:

  • Greek Koulouri bread, sesame-crusted bread ring
  • Paximadia, almond and raki biscuits

Greek food is not only about sharing food and passing down recipes taught from grandmothers and mothers but it also ensures the recipes are not forgotten. It also follows deeply seeded traditions that imply that one’s home is a welcoming and hospitable environment that is open to all. So this class is not just about what we eat, but how we eat.

Some of our fondest memories involve food because of the strong sensory relationship we have with it. The flavours and aromas, the textures and the visual appeal of beautifully presented dishes are linked to the sweetness, the tastiness, the crunch and all that is part of this banquet we call life.

At the end of the session, you will have learnt how to make traditional Greek baked goods and gained new skills from experienced baker and cook Kelly.

The Hellenic Odyssey looks forward to connecting with you and creating fond culinary memories.

Relax and unwind with this fun and interactive online baking class, it's one of the best things to do at home!

“A project created from the heart, driven by a passion for food and inspired by a love for travel."

At The Hellenic Odyssey we want to share our authentic family recipes and traditional cooking methods and provide you with:

  • A valuable and entertaining experience while learning to cook a new cuisine
  • The ability and confidence to improve on your kitchen skills and cooking techniques
  • Insights into the cultural heritage, values and traditions surrounding the recipes
  • A taste of Greece through the flavours and aromas of Greek food that leaves you wanting to explore more of Greece

The Hellenic Odyssey is not just another cooking school. We are all about the heart and soul of Greek food and the people and stories that make it what it is. Our focus is to share our recipes so that they are kept alive throughout the generations but also to preserve the essence and authenticity of Greek food and cooking.

We want to teach you about that the simple flavours of Greek food that makes it so delicious. We offer a variety of classes every week, both online and in-person for individuals, groups, teams and corporates and for special occasions and celebrations.

For Greeks, food is about the cultivation, harvest and preparation of food that is as close to nature as possible. Every single day, Greek families will come home from work and sit down at the table for a shared home-cooked meal before an afternoon siesta and then back to work for the afternoon shift.

Based on the Greek way of living, we too will prepare, cook and eat together as a group, in a relaxed informal cooking class or demonstration where you can choose your level of participation. You can sit back and just enjoy food being prepared for you that is freshly cooked right before your eyes or you can roll up your sleeves, put on an apron and take part in helping to prepare the dishes.

Classes are an intimate gathering to provide the opportunity to ask questions, to learn and to enjoy the company and the food in a relaxed and informal setting. The recipes are simple, quick and easy but truly delicious.

In our classes, you will learn how to select the ingredients that will provide you with the most authentic Greek flavours so you can replicate this type of cooking in your own kitchen. The aromas will have you feeling like you are in strolling along a cobblestoned laneway passing by a taverna on one of the beautiful idyllic Greek islands.

You will be welcomed into a Greek family home set with olive trees and mandarin trees out the front and a fig tree, orange, lemon tree and vine out the back.

Your host, Kelly, is a passionate home cook with Cretan heritage. She hosts culinary travel tours to Crete and conducts Greek cooking classes and walking food tours in Melbourne. Kelly helps people to learn how to cook delicious and nutritious food, in a fun and interactive environment, so they can gain the kitchen skills needed to become confident cooks.

Kelly looks forward to welcoming you into her home and learning about your food journey while she shares insights into Greek cuisine and the Greek way of life.
