To start, you'll learn how to make the popular Vietnamese banh mi sandwich using pickled toppings and tofu. Then, you'll move on to another favorite and make nachos with a "cheesy" cashew base and plenty of toppings. Finally, for dessert, you'll whip up a dairy-free mini apple pie bursting with sweetness and spices.

Vanessa is absolutely fabulous! Her energy is a great pilot for her food. We had the pleasure of being welcomed into her home for an intimate cooking experience for my boyfriend’s birthday. It did not disappoint! Menu was excellent and Vanessa was nice enough to pack us all the leftovers. My boyfriend is Italian and was so pumped to make the cookies he grew up eating, but never knew how to make. Highly recommend and would book another class for sure

I had the pleasure of doing two cooking classes with Chef Vanessa. They were so much fun, such a great personality and the menu was amazing. I have made them a couple of times and everyone loved it. Crab cakes with the yogurt Remoulade were amazing. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
