Known for bringing old—and new—world culture to the foodie masses in Texas, Central Market’s popular Passport series will be honoring Greece April 29-May 12. During Passport Greece, Central Market stores will be teeming with a wide array of Greek comestibles. Expect classes, wine dinners, product samplings and tours throughout the two-week festival.
In years past, Central Market has allowed patrons to “visit” such other countries as Italy, Spain and Argentina—bringing food, wines, spices, coffees, cheeses, and all manner of pastas, produce, meats and seafood to Texas shores.
“Passport is much more than a weekend product sampling—it is a virtual in-country voyage of culinary discovery, without the plane ticket and the hassles of travel,” according to Paul Harty, general manager, Central Market-Southlake.
All of the Central Market locations will be offering Grecian products that include barrel-aged Feta
cheese, exotic Greek olives, traditional Greek pastries and baked goods such as Sesame Koulouri and Baklava, dips and spreads such as authentic Tzatziki, Greek Feta and spinach dip, and hundreds more.
“You’ll also have the opportunity to indulge in Greek wines, brought by the country’s top wineries and vintners, straight from the island’s ancient vineyards,” Harty says. Greek winemakers will serve as special guests at various Central Market locations—including the one in Southlake—during festival.
Inspiring and authentic culinary experts also will be a part of Passport Greece, to share their knowledge and love of Greek cuisine with cooking classes and food demonstrations. For class schedule information visit CentralMarket.com.
Always home to a variety of seasonal and timely food and drink offerings, Central Market in Southlake knows how to treat their customers, and those that visit the grocer during Passport Greece will not be disappointed.
