Yiayia’s Greek Octopus Stew

Cooking With Granny:

Cooking with Granny: Yiayia’s Greek Octopus Stew Cooking & Storytelling is an interactive cooking class being held on Saturday, August 11, 2:00 – 4:00 PM at COFFEED, 37-18 Northern Boulevard.

Join Edible Queens in a lively cooking and storytelling session at COFFEED in LIC with Cooking with Granny’s Caroline Shin and Granny Barbara. Chat with Granny Barbara and Caroline as they share stories of family meals, Greek immigration and community in old Astoria while preparing an octopus stew—a homey, traditional Greek dish that you won’t find in NYC restaurants. This cooking demo will be interactive—indeed, you’ll get a chance to handle the octopus, too! Better yet, you will be able to taste it afterwards. Following the demo will be a cookbook swap. Tired of the same old recipes? Browse cookbooks of all cuisines and trade in yours to explore a new world of recipes.

Tickets are available for $15 at eventbrite.com, just type in Cooking with Granny.

Edible Queens is located at 34-18 Northern Blvd., Long Island City, NY 11101.
