Chef and Author Peter Minaki to Cook and Teach in New Jersey

10390164_773104936075400_818518018522524382_nIt is with great pleasure to announce that I will again host a Greek/Mediterranean dinner in northern New Jersey in May and will, for the first time in New Jersey, teach a hand-made phyllo dough class.

I was first invited by Chef Bryan Gregg of Escape Montclair 3 years ago and each time it’s been a joy, a learning experience and inspiration. Chef Gregg has cooked at the James Beard Foundation twice!
