Fruits, their flavors and the recipes of traditional spoon sweets and jams will have a feast day at the culinary event organized by the Lyceum of Greek Women of Montreal in collaboration with the nuns of the convent of Greek Orthodox Monastery of the Virgin Mary Consolation Lachutte, Sunday December 4, 2-5 p.m. at the hall of the Annunciation Church (Evangelismos).
That Sunday the Greek Orthodox nuns under the blessing of Gerontissa Thekla will reveal all the small and big secrets of the manufacture of spoon sweets and jams based on the wonderful fruit produced in Greece and in Quebec.
These sweets, pure and healthy, inextricably linked with the Greek tradition, are suitable for a modern diet with rich flavor and useful calories.
Our nuns with full respect for tradition will teach us how fruit instead of being discarded at the time of their production, can be transformed into preserves and jams, keeping the scent and the flavors live a long time in our cupboard .
In the event coffee and Greek pastrieswill be offered by the ladies of the Lyceum of Greek Women of Montreal.
Also, attendees can purchase the wall calendar of Greek Women Lyceum 2017 with recipes for spoon sweets and jams, illustrated by the talented painter Katerina Mertikas.
The original works of the painter will be sold at a silent auction.
They will be sold jars of traditional sweets and jams made from the nuns of the Monastery of Our Virgin Mary of Consolation.
