When the heat of summer has you dreading turning your oven on, you're going to want these raw vegan dessert recipes to conquer your cravings! The KITCHEN at the Boston Public Market presents a very special Baking School featuring Katerina Kouriati, the Queen of Vega. In this lively, hands-on cooking class you’ll learn the essential science and techniques to creating perfectly light, perfectly fresh, and perfectly uncooked seasonal treats.
We're taking inspiration from the summer bounty of the farmers of Boston Public Market - Stillman's Farm, Red Apple Farm and Siena Farm - to bring you two sinfully delicious (but secretly healthy) recipes that will utilize the freshest berries and fruits of summer.
Attendees will also enjoy a wine tasting of three local wines from the Massachusetts Wine Shop as they create each scrumptious recipe.

Born in Greece and raised by a strawberry farmer, Katerina always had a sweet tooth. An archaeologist by profession she researched ancient Greek recipes and use this knowledge to create new, gastronomic sweet experiences. Most recently, she wanted to be able to enjoy a dessert without the guilt of eating something unhealthy, full of calories and poor in nutrition. So she decided to create nutritious, delicious desserts made with ingredients from the plant kingdom and naturally sweetened. The result of her research and experimentation brought to life a series of plant-based desserts using seasonal and local ingredients.
Queen of Vega came to life out of love for nutritious, delicious, plant-based desserts and the desire to offer this option to all sweet lovers. We envisioned healthier, guilt-free desserts and we create them using ingredients directly derived from the plant kingdom: nuts, seeds, fruits, flowers and vegetables. Our desserts are free from refined sugar, free from dairy, free from grains and soy. We are making mouthwatering fruits and flowers flavoured cashew cakes with a cheesecake texture, godly soft puddings, unique chocolate treats and delightful energy snacks.
