November 21 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM$40.00
Saturday, Nov. 21, 11 AM – 12 PM. Zoom Class: Greek Kouzina – Ouzo Cake with Nancy Jimmerson & Genie Gekas Patterson. $40 per household.
The November Greek Kouzina features a Tucson spin on a favorite sweet treat – Ouzo Keik (cake). What makes this light cake so special? Ouzo, of course! And a honey syrup that’s poured over the walnut cake as soon as it come out of the oven, making it practically melt in your mouth.
Ancient Greek desserts incorporated a lot of nuts and honey into their sweet preparations. Walnuts were abundantly available, much more so than wheat and other protein-rich grains, which were scarce and only used to make bread.
