Cooking Class - A Taste of Traditional Mediterranean

The salty Mediterranean breeze and fresh fare inspired these tantalizing flavors.

You'll feel like you're sitting seaside as you prepare Mediterranean recipes in this engaging cooking class. Led by Chef Jacques, you'll create three courses of authentic Mediterranean dishes.

To start the class, you'll make crispy falafels and a fresh tzatziki sauce made with Greek yogurt and cucumber. Next, cook up classic moussaka, a layered eggplant, ground lamb or beef, and béchamel sauce dish, sided by fluffy couscous mixed with vegetables and herbs and drizzled with a citrus dressing. An indulgent baklava sweetened with honey and cinnamon serves as your dessert.

Guests are welcome to provide wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

The cooking class with Chef Jacques was absolute delight. The combination of the zesty lemon, the velvety béchamel sauce, and the perfectly cooked salmon was a match made in culinary heaven. The flavors complemented each other beautifully, resulting in a dish that was both sophisticated and comforting. The instructor's expertise, passion, and ability to create a supportive learning environment made the class enjoyable and rewarding.
