It was a thrill to be cooking at a new venue, The Heliconian Club in Yorkville (Toronto). This old church was converted into a center that hosts and promotes women in the arts and letters. The Heliconian gains inspiration from Muses and the name is derived from Mount Helicon.
The menu’s theme is A la Greque…French dishes with a Greek twist and Greek dishes with French flare. I will offer the usual 5 course menu with Cretan olive oil and other specialty products from Nisos Importing and wine pairings from Victory Wines and Spirits.
Some of the wines we will be serving will be from Thymiopoulos Vineyards, located in Naoussa, Macedonia (northern Greece) and winemaker Apostolos Thymiopoulos will be in attendance to share his insights about the evening’s wines.
