Cooking classes for traditional Greek dishes

Easter bread is on the menu

ORANGE — The Ladies Philoptochos Society of the St. Barbara Greek Orthodox Church, continues to offer their very successful cooking classes for traditional Greek dishes that are part of the Mediterranean diet. This spring it’s Easter bread and cookies.
The class will be held 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 9 at 480 Racebrook Road.

Tsoureki is the traditional holiday bread for Pascha (Easter). With regional variations in flavoring, this brioche-like bread is traditionally shaped into large braids, sprinkled with sesame seeds, and adorned with red eggs. Kourambiethes are powdered sugar-covered almond shortbread cookies traditional in Greek homes for Christmas and Easter,
Cost for the class is $40, and includes ingredients, coffee and pastry, and one baked loaf to take home.
