Cooking Class - Phyllo 101
Get acquainted with phyllo — a versatile dough that can be used for any course.
In this hands-on vegan class, Chef Sawsan will teach you the basics of handling phyllo and how you can use it in nearly any dish from appetizer to entrée to dessert.
Phyllo, also spelled filo and Greek for "leaf," is tissue-thin sheets of dough that have very little fat. When phyllo is baked, the layers become airy, crisp, and beautifully flaky. Many popular Greek dishes are made with phyllo dough, three of which you will learn how to prepare in this class, including spinach-layered spanakopita and baklava with decadent syrup.
Guests are welcome to purchase wine and beer from the venue.
Spinach "feta" triangles
Creamy Mushroom Cigars

Chef Sawsan was great, we didn't just go through the recipes, she explain a lot of things about cooking fundamentals, why some things react the way they do, how to cook them better, she also gave us a lot of alternatives for the recipes we made, what to do the leftovers from cooking them. The food was al delicious.

Chef Sawsan was wonderful! She was friendly, generous, and an excellent chef. We felt right at home. A few days after the class we made an eggplant phyllo pie for Thanksgiving -- it was a huge hit!

Chef Sawsan was great! She made us feel very comfortable, we learned a lot about cooking with Phyllo, and ate some delicious food! Also a plus: the B&B where she hosts the class was very charming and in a cute beach town! We would highly recommend Chef Sawsan.

Chef Sawsan taught us to make three delicious pastas! The class was very educational, fun, and informative. We got to bring home many leftovers which will make dinner this week spectacular. Chef Sawsan is clearly very knowledgeable and passionate about cooking!! We highly recommend anyone else take a class with her, you will leave feeling very full and inspired.

This cooking class with Chef Sawsan was our New Years gift to each other. My husband and I toyed with the idea of learning how to make pasta since the pandemic started. We watched endless How To videos on line and even purchased a couple of accessories, but could not get ourselves over the feeling that it is too complicated. Chef Sawsan helped us to 'cross that road'. Evening spent at Chef Sawsan's was absolutely magic! Chef Sawsan explained us the technique and science behind making pasta. She patiently guided us through the process. The meal came out outstanding! We cooked. We chatted. We laughed. And we left Chef Sawsan's with longing for more! THANK YOU SO MUCH, CHEF SAWSAN for sharing your love to food and your knowledge of cooking with us!

My girlfriend and I had a private vegan cooking lesson with Chef Sawsan and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. She taught us how to make vegan paella which was absolutely delicious and surprisingly easy to follow. She provided a comfortable atmosphere and made us feel right at home in her kitchen. She was also happy to answer the hundred questions my girlfriend had about vegan cooking and taught her useful tricks in the kitchen that she will probably use forever. We would definitely take a class with her again and we recommend it for anyone interested in learning about vegan cooking or eating delicious vegan food.

For our 4 year wedding anniversary my wife and I wanted to do something out of the box that we have never done before. After a little research we came across Chef Sawsan's "Homemade Pasta Trio" cooking class. We are so very happy that we chose this for our anniversary evening! First off, Chef Sawsan's kitchen in a cute colonial bed and breakfast that is something out of the Hallmark channel. From the moment we booked the cooking experience, Chef Sawsan was in touch with us and she was the nicest, most accommodating individual and really made us feel comfortable. Upon arrival, we were greeted, we checked into our room where we could relax and get ready to see the town. When it came time for the cooking experience, she lead us into her kitchen where the awesome cooking class experience began. Chef Sawsan is extremely informative and on top of teaching and helping us make our own fettuccini, gnocchi and bow ties; she taught us a ton regarding pasta making and pasta in general. We never realized how easy and fun it was to make until this class. The hands on portion of the cooking class was super fun and my wife and I are so pleased and thankful for Chef Sawsan and her cooking class. I would recommend her cooking classes to anyone and I would also recommend planning to stay overnight in her bed and breakfast as well (like we did which is separate from Cozymeal) as it really brought the whole experience together. Plus, the breakfast in the morning was delicious. We had fresh pressed coffee, the freshest vegetable omelet and toast along with her very own homemade apple jam (SO GOOD). Rockport is such a beautiful little town to visit as well. If you choose to book with her, you won't be disappointed!

When we arrived at Chef Sawsan’s, we immediately felt at home. She was so warm and down to earth. We had such an incredible time learning from her and eating her delicious food. We not only took home our leftovers, but also a wealth of knowledge about the meal and techniques that we weren’t already aware of. This experience was a joy from start to finish - we are already planning our next visit with her!

Chef Sawsan was great. Her inn was warm and inviting, it felt like cooking on my own kitchen. Her instructions were easy to pick up on and she also educated us about the science behind the cooking. I even made one of the sauces the next night and impressed my whole family!

Chef Sawsan was incredible with the way she welcomed us into her kitchen and brought us through a delicious evening of Italian cooking. She taught us the methods and techniques that go into the preparation. Most importantly, she was able to couple the deliciousness of the food with the technique of preparation and the mood of the evening, making it an experience we will always remember and can easily transport ourselves back when we prepare the meal on our own.

Chef Sawsan was a wonderful teacher and person to be around. She’s incredibly kind, smart and funny and the class was well organized and cohesive. The food was amazing and the inn is adorable! We will be back soon for another class!

We went to Rockport to celebrate my mom's birthday with a cooking lesson with Chef Sawsan, and had an absolutely amazing time! Chef Sawsan is a great teacher and makes incredible food look easy! We had a great time chatting with her and felt so welcomed in her home - her warmth and energy is wonderful :) It was so much more than a cooking class! Cannot recommend this experience highly enough, we would love to come back :)

Chef Sawsan was both knowledgeable, engaging, and fun. I went with my daughter and we left knowing how to make several different homemade pastas with delicious sauces -- true Italian style. It was hands on with a demo first and then we did it solo. I great evening.

Chef Sawsan did a wonderful job! I enjoyed learning from her cooking skills. The tips she shared during the class were very helpful and will contribute greatly to my cooking experience at home. Chef Sawsan is very welcoming and her space is warm and charming.
