"In this class, I will be walking you through the many different ways in which vegetables are prepared in the Mediterranean to create complete, substantial meals that leave you fulfilled."

Baked Vegetable Classics 

I will share with you my favorite ways to add flavor and texture in lieu of meat by integrating ‘trick’ ingredients such as walnuts, olive paste and cheese. We will speak about the ‘craveability factor’ – something that gives food that irresistible quality and which often has to do with the addition of good fats to your vegetables, creating a few versatile techniques that you can apply to all sorts of plant-based dishes. All recipes constitute complete mains, suitable for both easy midweek meals and impressive dinners.
  • Eggplant with walnut garlic sauce
  • Baked Vegetable Medley (Briam) with Olive Paste
  • Spinach Gratin with Feta and Graviera
"My aim is to cultivate your understanding of what flavors and textures work together, creating flexible formulas to ease you in the philosophy of fresh, seasonal Mediterranean cooking!"

Ancient Grains, Modern Meals 

Join me in this class to explore one of the most ancient food products in Greek and Mediterranean cooking and a foundational element of the Mediterranean diet; grains. While touching upon the history and importance of grains in this part of the world, I will explain how to use different grains and integrate them into dishes that exude healthfulness. 

Our building blocks are basic ingredients such as olive oil, ancient grains, fresh vegetables and cheese, which we will use in a variety of combinations to give you a sense of the flexible, forgiving approach that is integral to cooking in this part of the world. The dishes we will be cooking can be great accompaniments to meat or fish, but they are designed as complete meals in themselves, especially as light, easy lunches.
  • Bulgur Pilaf with Leeks, Walnuts & Tomatoes 
  • Creamy Tomatorizo, Tomato Rice
  • Hearty Barley Rusk Bread Salad 
"A true essential of the Mediterranean diet, legumes are incredibly versatile, but not much is widely known about the various ways in which they can be used in the kitchen."

Mediterranean Bean & Legume Sense 

In this class we will delve into one of my favorite chapters in Mediterranean cooking. Legumes are an amazing source of plant protein, ideal for when you want a nutritionally complete meal that is completely meat-free. 

I will show you some of the flavor pallets that pair perfectly with different legumes, utilizing the herbs and spices that are part of the Mediterranean culinary tapestry to give them amazing flavor. We will be using beans, chickpeas and lentils as a base to create simple meals that can be hearty or light, served warm or cold, and which are representative of the versatility that is synonymous with legumes in the Mediterranean.
  • Savory-Sweet Baked Giant Beans with Vegetables & Herbs 
  • Spicy Vegan Chickpea Sausages in a Tangy Tomato Sauce
  • Lentil ‘Tabouleh’ Salad with Herbs and Hard-Boiled Eggs 
"My aim in this class is to help you familiarize yourself with some of the basic flavor combinations and techniques that are widely used when cooking fish or seafood."

Easy Greek-Mediterranean Fish & Seafood 

Fish has historically been an integral part of the Greek and Mediterranean diet and one of the main sources of protein, given that we are surrounded by water in this part of the world. 

Preparing fish at home can be intimidating at first, so I have chosen classic recipes characterized by simple cooking methods and accessible ingredients to ease you in this exciting endeavor. We will be making three easy dishes using seabass, shrimp and salmon and using classic ingredients such as fresh herbs, feta and olives to build characteristic Mediterranean flavors. 
  • Whole Mediterranean Seabass Baked with Vegetables & Herbs 
  • Spicy Skillet Shrimp with White Wine, Fennel and Feta 
  • Pan-Seared Salmon with Orange, Olives & Fresh Tomato
