We all know nobody cooks like Grandma -- her home cooking has heart, soul, and heritage. In our next edition of Fresh Bites: Cooking Live at Essex Street Market, we’re pairing up with Cooking with Granny to bring you a live cooking session with Granny Barbara and her Greek octopus stew!

As Granny Barbara cooks her octopus stew, we’ll hear tales of Greek immigration and community in old Astoria, Queens. Plus: This cooking demo will be interactive -- indeed, you’ll get a chance to handle the octopus, too! Register your tickets here.
