The first class in our Cooking @ Home Series was a hit! PPMA Nutritionist & Certified Dietician Lauren Papanos enjoyed leading the class and we heard great reviews from participants.
The class, which met on Zoom, prepared Skillet Greek Souvlaki and Spiced Pomegranate Pears. Delicious, right? You will find the recipe below our video of the Home Cooks’ images.
