A botanist's life may be a lonely life — but a cook's life sure isn't. For proof, take Bessie's Big Fat Greek Kitchen class at the Missouri Botanical Garden (4344 Shaw Boulevard;, and just wait and see how many friends drop by your house in the next few weeks for a Mediterranean meal. Not only will you learn to prepare food like the Greeks during this course, but cookbook author Bessie Theodorou will also help you master phyllo, a most unmanageable and tricky dough (that part of the 10 a.m. class alone should be worth every penny of the $38 admission fee) — homemade baklava and spanikopita, here we come! That is, after we make our required reservations for the class by calling 314-577-9441.
