The Lidl Food Academy on Stasikratous street is now open and ready to take the public on a wonderful culinary journey, filled with cooking workshops, nutrition seminars, gastronomy lectures, wine tasting classes and presentations of special food groups.

The Lidl Food Academy, a global Lidl initiative, recently marked five years since it first opened. It was created to offer a holistic experience involving Lidl products and to reach out to the food culture of every country through theme-specific weeks.

Over the past five years, the academy has conducted more than 200 free cooking workshops and presented 600 innovative recipes from experienced chefs, as well as hosting hundreds of children who visited the academy under the auspices of the Ministry of Education.

Lidl Food Academy recognises the value of healthy, homemade food made from fresh ingredients, helping in the creation of a balanced nutrition and raising our quality of life.

In the spirit of Christmas, a workshop took place which included sweet treats and lots of smiles for all attendees. The space of the academy was also decorated accordingly.

Chef Constantinos Petevinos has been along for the ride since the start, creating imaginative recipes for every class at the academy. For this special day, pastry chefs Demetris and Xenia Ioannou created a collection of sweets to celebrate our anniversary.

Participants followed along at the workshop and then had the chance to recreate the recipes with the help of the chef and his team. These included choux pastries, lemon cupcakes with poppy seeds and buttercream coating with cream cheese, lemon cream with vanilla crumble biscuit and fresh blueberries, as well as buttercream for cake icing.

With a deep sense of responsibility towards the public and inspired by its corporate values, Lidl has set a new date for the next event, following the lifting of the measures announced by the Ministry of Health. The Lidl Food Academy will be with you again when the conditions allow it and everyone’s safety has been assured.
