Mediterranean food is regarded as one of the most diverse, versatile, and healthy cuisines, borrowing from the countries bordering the Mediterranean shores like Italy, Greece, Spain, Morocco, Egypt, France, Turkey and Istanbul, to name a few. This region is known for a fresh, whole foods, plant-forward approach to cooking. If you’re interested in learning more about how a plant-based diet can help you thrive, join Chef Linda and learn how to create some popular dishes from this region and have an opportunity to ask questions. You’ll enjoy adding a new, heart-healthy cuisine to your global vegan skill set in the kitchen. Bring your appetite for this flavorful meal!

In this demonstration-style class, you’ll learn how to make:

  • Mezze Platter
  • Koftas with Cashew Tzatziki
  • Avgolemono Soup (Greek Egg and Lemon Soup)
  • Vegetable Paella
  • Olive Oil Almond Fig Cake
