 Cooking Demonstrations

Integral to our Greek and Ithacan heritage is the joy of food. The Ithacan Historical Society conducts cooking demonstrations to help pass on the recipes of  tradiitonal Ithacan fare.  Demonstrators are our very own members who generously share their recipes and their special culinary secrets.  Participants unanimously agree that the sessions are great fun as well as informative.  Follow the links for recipes from cooking demonstrations:

Traditional Ithacan Recipes

In 2016, as part of our centenary celebrations, we collaborated with the Kali Orexi team to produce cooking videos of two traditional Ithacan Recipes – Rovani and Savoro, which are also included in our cookbook, Ithacan Recipes, Australian Memories

The videos were part of the Society’s centenary exhibition at the Immigration Museum, Our Odyssey, Ithacans in Melbourne.  Featured on the videos are Maria Dellas and Pano Paxinos who kindly shared their recipes and reminisces.

Kali Orexi is a Melbourne based team passionate about keeping our Greek culinary traditions alive. We thank the Kali Orexi team for their generous support in producing these videos.
