If you can't go to the Mediterranean, bring the Mediterranean lifestyle into your own home. The menu is authentic and so delicious. I will make my own Pita chips from now on. Many thanks to this brilliant chef. And, she has a vast understanding of special diets, too.

Because of this class I feel confident enough to cook Thanksgiving dinner for my entire family. Tina's knowledge translates to all types of cooking and really built my cooking-confidence. Thank you!
