Cooking Class: Magnificent Mediterranean Meal

You’ll create a beautiful, five-course Mediterranean feast, packed with authentic flavors, in this hands-on cooking class. Chef Jalen won’t just teach you recipes and cooking techniques — he’ll also offer tips on plating, seasoning and how to stay confident in the kitchen. You’ll first prepare a light garden salad, followed by a crunchy and satisfying falafel. For the main courses, you’ll cook chicken kabobs and lamb chops, paired with fragrant saffron rice. For dessert, you’ll make a decadent, Mediterranean-style chocolate Bundt cake topped with berries.

We really enjoyed our class with Chef Jalen! He was very knowledgeable and organized. He was such a good teacher as he kept us engaged and answered all of our questions. We learned some great new tips and techniques that will help us recreate these wonderful dishes. I highly recommend Chef Jalen to all those in Charlotte!
