Greek Meze Passion
Hi Nico and Belinda, Thank you so much for such an amazing evening the other night at our Greek Meze cooking class. I have already made everything that we learnt on the night, all of which have turned out deliciously. The little insider tips have been invaluable! I just wanted to re-iterate that when you get around to introducing the Arabic themed night I have a swag of friends enthusiastic about attending along with dad and my husband. We may even organise a private class! Eagerly awaiting its announcement. Best…Arabella

Hi Nico, Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our “Greek Experience” (Greek Meze Passion) last week. The whole night was a delight- ambience, company, your effortless way of explaining things , and making everyone feel relaxed – and the food ! We’ll look forward to doing it again.Many thanks…Anne & Michael
Hi Nico, I hosted a dinner party for my hubby’s birthday a couple of weeks ago and decided Greek Meze all the way. Sublime is how one friend described your amazing recipes. The orange and filo pie was amazing (and so, so easy). Well, I have to say I surprised myself. Friends were so impressed with how perfect my haloumi filo cigars were wrapped (easy when you know how!). I’m just waiting on my girlfriends to get back to me so we can lock in another cooking passions date. Cheers…Cathy
Hi Nico and Belinda, Your Greek Meze Class was WONDERFUL and we both really enjoyed it all. It was a “lively” evening and I think Nico you are AMAZING to do what you do. Yours sincerely…Judy
Dear Nico, Thank you for welcoming us into your home on Tuesday night. What a delightful and thoroughly enjoyable experience it was. It exceeded all my expectations. I cannot wait to try your recipes and implement your techniques. I will most definitely be back! Cheers…Kathy
