Don’t be intimidated by filo! Join Viviane for this hands-on vegetarian cooking class using filo in savory and sweet recipes, and wholesome ingredients such as olive oil, nuts, quinoa, fresh vegetables, and herbs.
In this class, we will be making both savory (spanakopita and cheese) and sweet (baklava) filo creations, as well as creating our own hummus and falafel. A true Mediterranean feast!
About the instructor:
Viviane Levy grew up in Cairo, Egypt, attended a French Lycee, and left when she was 20. Her love for Mediterranean food never waned and she acquired her culinary skills from her mother and mother-in-law who were both excellent cooks. Her interest in nutrition, organic food, and the Mediterranean diet - rich in fresh vegetables, olive oil and nuts, led her to test her recipes on colleagues and friends. After retiring from UVM where she coordinated medical reunions and special events at the College of Medicine, Viviane did some catering from home. For the past seven years, she taught cooking classes at CVU -- Spring and Fall sessions -- through their Access Adult evening program.
Class is $45 per person and includes a Mediterranean feast at the end of class! Our facility is BYOB, feel free to bring your own beverage to class.
