Join us for very special event at the luxe Beta Bar in Sydney’s CBD with our friend chef Peter Conistis cooking from a beautiful cookbook which is being launched in Australia by its talented author Sophie Hapsi – Sophie’s Cookbook – Delicious Limnos Recipes for all Seasons.
We are delighted that Sophie will be visiting from Limnos to join us. Sophie has been a wonderful part of our Greek Island Safaris for many years, hosting our guests in her seaside home and creating stylish and incredibly delicious dishes for us to enjoy with the tsipouro and ouzo made by her husband and son. Her book is a celebration of this hidden gem of an island, full of different seasonal produce and dishes that are easy to be recreate here in Australia.
We’ll be joined by Sophie’s cousin Liz Kaydos who has guided many Gourmet Safaris Greek Islands safaris. Together over 15 years ago they teamed up to make Lemnos a special spot on the Greek Safaris tour. Sophie has supported Liz’s endeavours to promote the Anzac/Limnos story on Limnos and they can now rest easy the Australian Government has approved funding for a Anzac Heritage Trail to be built on the island which will pay homage to the Australian Anzac soldiers and nurses who served on the island in 1915 , and for 148 Australian Anzacs buried on the island.
If you love Greek food, have travelled with us to Greece or simply want learn more about one of the lesser known islands, this event will be simply magic with Greek wines from our friends at Earlwood Wines.
