A word from your host: “ My class might be about cooking, but it's also about learning to play and experiment in the kitchen. We might geek out a bit and discuss shortcuts, health and substitution tips so that you're free to recreate this dish and make it your own. I'm from a family of storytellers, so don't be surprised if I break out into tales from growing up and traveling through Asia. I'll make sure everyone is following the class steps and at the end, we will celebrate our delightful creations!"
