Cooking Class: Healthful Mediterranean Medley

The healthful, energizing cuisine of the Mediterranean comes to life in this unique cooking class with Chef Vanessa! Learn to use fresh ingredients to create regional classics that focus on nutrition without sacrificing taste.


You'll learn to create a smoky roasted red pepper lentil humus flavored with garlic and smoked paprika and a flatbread prepared using yogurt and whole-wheat flour. Then, you'll prepare chicken shawarma meatballs and fattoush salad featuring fresh tomatoes, parsley, feta and warm spices. And because dessert can be both healthy and delicious, enjoy a lesson in spiced rice pudding.

I had the pleasure of doing two cooking classes with Chef Vanessa. They were so much fun, such a great personality and the menu was amazing. I have made them a couple of times and everyone loved it. Crab cakes with the yogurt Remoulade were amazing. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
