Cooking Class: Authentic Asian Flavors

In this hands-on cooking class with Chef Mateus, you’ll learn the skills needed to craft a classic, flavor-exploding Asian feast. You’ll explore different ingredients and seasonings, such as dashi and furikake, that add a unique umami flavor to dishes. You’ll master the techniques necessary to achieve perfectly cooked vegetable skewers, fluffy rice and juicy marinated meats — all paired with sumptuous sauces and seasonings. For dessert, Chef Mateus will teach you how to make a cake packed with distinctly Asian flavor: a mix of tangy ginger balanced by a light and earthy matcha whipped cream.

Chef Mateus was amazing. He has experience cooking in Thailand and the pad Thai was the best I’ve ever had. You get to cook in a distillery and can get drinks from the bar which is awesome. Would highly recommend!
