Greek Cooking Class: Spanakopita, Greek Salad, Baba Ganouj, Hummus, Couscous (and Chocolate Baklava)

Tonight, I showed my cooking class how to work with filo dough; many were already somewhat familiar with using this ingredient that needs to be kept from drying out, and all seemed to be excited to be working with it! One team of four made spanakopita, and the other team of four made chocolate baklava. We also had baba ganouj (made with eggplant) and hummus (made with chickpeas; both dips have sesame paste - tahini - and other ingredients, including garlic); pita bread; Greek salad; and plain couscous. My students also made delicious chocolate baklava!
