Kouzina at the Show
Showbags, rides, fairy floss…this can only mean the Royal Melbourne Show is on again!
This year, Greek-Australian chef, Theo Kostoglou has managed to slip in amongst the animal nurseries, milking bars, and shearing demonstrations to give show-goers a little taste of Greece.
The Kouzina restaurant owner and chef will be presenting a Modern Greek cooking demonstration at the Grand Pavilion.
"I am looking forward to promoting the Greek cuisine in general and showing them a few of our popular Greek ingredients," he says.
Kostoglou is no stranger to the to the hospitality industry. He began cooking at 14 at his parent's business, then travelled to Greece where he received formal culinary training on the Greek Islands Rhodes and Kos.
In 1993 he opened up his first restaurant, Lindos Greek Tavern, and in 2007, Kouzina was born.
Kouzina is in four locations including: Knox Ozone, Southgate, Westfield Doncaster, and Watergardens Town Centre.
Along with George Calombaris, Kostoglou was one of six international chefs invited to contribute his recipes to the 'bible of Greek cuisine', Vefa's Kitchen.
Catch Kostoglou and the Kouzina team cooking their favourite Kouzina dishes on 23rd September (5-5.30pm) and 24th September (5-5.30pm).
The Royal Melbourne Show is taking place at Melbourne Showgrounds, Epsom Road, Ascot Vale.
