Pure March

Pure March

Description

Dinner Experience with Amaryllis Tsegou

This dinner experience pays homage to and is inspired by Clean Monday (also known as Pure or Ash Monday), which marks the beginning of Easter Lent. It’s a day when families all over Greece gather around a table filled mostly with vegan dishes and some seafood, all served with copious amounts of lagana, a fluffy flatbread, made solely on that day. Each bite is light, yet filled with flavour and designed to celebrate staples of Greek cooking and the beginning of spring, while preparing diners for the 40-day fasting that follows.

Amaryllis’ recipes are rooted in traditional dishes, but often include a twist or additional ingredient inspired by her travels and years of cooking and dining all over London. Local seasonal vegetables take centre stage, and are beautifully supported by some of Oliveology’s finest products, like extra virgin olive oil, pulses, tahini and olives. All dishes are served family-style (in big platters placed in the middle of the table) and can be enjoyed alongside some of the finest Greek red and white wines.

After completing a PhD in Dance Anthropology, she started her personal blog The Tasty Other, in order to explore her love of food, fascination with tradition and gatherings, and passion about storytelling through photography.

Soon after, she started collaborating with other creatives and brands as a photographer, stylist and recipe developer. Using her background in education, she is also organising food and photography workshops for children & adults both in London and abroad. She has been hosting supper clubs in Greece and London, preparing food that is inspired by childhood dishes, foods tasted and learned during her travels in Greece and abroad, all infused with and influenced by London’s multiculturalism and diversity.
