The Sustainable Kitchen: Pork Souvlaki

This is a cooking class taught by the Conservatory’s Sustainability Educator, Heather Bell. As with all of the classes in The Sustainable Kitchen series, Heather will talk about sustainability in the kitchen and the small steps you can take to help the planet as she teaches you to cook something delicious.

Students will learn how to make pork souvlaki, which is typical street food from mainland Greece. It’s pork tenderloin marinated in lemon juice, olive oil, shallots, garlic, and oregano, then skewered and grilled. The class will also make parsley flatbread and tzatziki, a traditional yogurt, cucumber, dill, and garlic dipping sauce. Lastly, students will assemble a simple Greek salad and make an herby lemon vinaigrette.

Her degree is in Environment, Economy, Development, & Sustainability from OSU. While that's her first love, cooking and baking are her second. She started learning from the best: her great-grandmother. When she was 5 years old she baked her first apple pie and hasn’t stopped experimenting and learning. You’re invited to take a class with Heather where she’ll share her tips on adding that “chefy” spin to a meal with a touch of sustainability.
