ionic 02 Masterclass Featuring Petros Dellidis

Date Posted:10 March 2015 


ionic02, an excellent experience
As the masterclass was restricted to such small numbers (6 per session) the six sessions sold out quickly. The lucky participants were entertained by Petros's unique style backed up with some solid culinary techniques. It was not your average sit back and watch in the mirror demo, it was hands on. Every participant was brought out to make a particular element of the five course meal. Questions and banter easily flowed between the group, Petros and the Food Depot staff, with some very technical questions coming from participants. Petros managed to keep to time as the dessert table was waiting. This really ignited serious passion and expression in the participants.

Petros, with many strings to his bow, is also the head development chef on Shane Delia’s Spice Journey (SBS). You do not get into that position without a solid culinary background and also an ability to communicate ideas verbally and on the plate. Due to the full disclosure of recipes you will be able to recreate them in your home in full or using elements to surprise your friends and family. The special ingredients will be available to purchase online in the next couple of days. Thanks to all the lucky participants for making it such a success.

Take a look at the below short video containing stills and a time lapse of one of the dessert tables.
