This is a live, interactive, hands-on cooking class held online via Zoom. See our event policies at the bottom of this webpage.

Weeknights call for simple meals. Continuing our "Five Ingredients" class theme where we pair primary Asian pantry staples with no more than five fresh ingredients and serve the dishes with fragrant Jasmine rice. For the Vietnamese pantry, these staples are fish sauce, soy sauce, salt, sugar, and oil. This series is intended to be a primer to Asian recipes for anyone intimidated by unknown ingredients, a lack of storage, or a lack of time. This class will teach a couple of key techniques of essential Asian cooking methods - braising and stir frying. We'll also include a lesson on cooking rice on a stove top (in case you lack a rice cooker).
