SUMMER HOLIDAY Squash, feta and trahana pie is the essence of Greece


WHERE Oliveology, The Cookhouse, Borough Market, London SE1 (

THE COURSE Greek Vegetarian Workshop, £65 (half day); includes lunch, goodie bag and 10 per cent off future purchases and workshops

TESTER Abigail Dodd

WHAT IT’S LIKE Marianna Kolokotroni began Oliveology, which specialises in quality organic food straight from Greece, as a stall in London’s Borough Market in 2009. Her family farm in Sparta, in the Peloponnese, is a main supplier, providing herbs, citrus fruit, nuts and olives. In 2016 Marianna was offered a permanent shop space and the business has since grown steadily, branching out to occasional cooking and wine workshops in Borough Market’s well-equipped demonstration kitchen, high above the main gate. Marianna introduced us to Despina Siahuli, an Athenian chef who’s worked in London kitchens as diverse as St John and E5 Bakehouse. There were 10 of us on the course. Most had travelled to Greece and loved the food and its emphasis on freshness and seasonality. My 18-year-old vegetarian daughter was with me, hoping to take away some useful recipes for when she starts university next month.

WHAT I LEARNED We made four dishes: fava; butternut squash, feta and trahana pie; wild mushroom fricassée; and hazelnut, apple and tahini filo pastries. The Greek dish fava (not to be confused with fresh broad beans or dried fava beans) is a simple, sustaining dish made from yellow split peas, which I’d enjoyed in Crete and Cefalonia. We chopped and sautéed onions and garlic, added carrots and the split peas, then left them to simmer before whizzing to a luscious dip.
