You'll start by preparing a seared cumin-crusted chicken served with delicately wilted baby spinach. Then, it's on to a savory shrimp scampi and soba noodles peppered with fresh seasonal vegetables.

Had an awesome time taking this class. The recipes were delish, great tips on where to source the ingredients and best Tom Ka soup I've ever had, can't wait to make it for friends at home when I get access to the class recipes! Super fun evening

The class was fun and we learned things we didn’t know. Did you know that if you have a good garlic press, you don’t even have to peel the clove? We learned that and lots more.
