Crafting Greek Mezze with Chef Robin Goldstein!
Chef Robin Goldstein returns with more delicious recipes and stories of her travels…this time she is featuring Greece and the vibrant flavors of Mediterranean mezze! “Mezze” means small plates for sharing; often thought of as appetizers, but with the fresh exuberant flavors and vast assortment, mezze can be the entire meal.
In this seated, outdoor demonstration, learn how to create four Greek-inspired appetizers enjoyed alongside adult beverages. Chef Robin will demonstrate the recipes and techniques as she prepares mezze inspired by her travels and living abroad! Over the years, Robin has developed and fine-tuned her California-Mediterranean cooking style, with an emphasis on spice and flavor.
The event will be held at a private residence, and guests will be seated in a spacious backyard, with ample room for physical distancing. We ask that all guests respect the personal space of others and maintain distance during this time! ESB will be following strict guidelines to ensure the safety of all guests and staff.
