At Greekalicious our philosophy is to teach people to cook simple Greek dishes using methods established in Greek kitchens more than 3,000 years ago. These simple methods have characterised the original and unique flavours of the best Greek cookery. The emphasis is always on simplicity, the harmonious use of ingredients, season in moderation, and an important emphasis on quality. We use wherever possible ingredients that are grown using sustainable and respectable ways.
We teach you how to live a long and healthy life by adopting Ancient wisdoms and philosophies.
Above all we practice an Ancient Greek tradition of cooking with “agapi” (unconditional love).
Greek dishes have been influencing other cultures for thousands of years. Join us and discover why.
