In this informative cooking class, Chef Kia will teach you how to make three bread-based dishes from cultures around the world. As you cook together, you'll learn pasta making, how to make béchamel sauce and more.
First up is a fresh and tangy green salad with mandarin oranges and ginger. Then you'll learn how to make fresh pasta for lobster mac and cheese, elevated with a simple yet decadent béchamel sauce. For the main course you'll assemble a Mediterranean-inspired pita pizza topped with eggplant, feta and lamb. Dessert is a sweet cinnamon focaccia bread.

Chef Kia is passionate about sharing her love of food with others. She shared a lot of helpful tips and techniques with us and we had a wonderful time. If you are in the NYC/NJ area, I highly recommend taking her classes and hiring her as your next private chef!
A New York City native, Chef Kia began her culinary career working with pastries at a true NYC hotspot. After honing her pastry skills for a few years, she decided to become a line cook to round out and perfect her culinary capabilities, and she quickly worked her way up to lead cook. Her favorite cuisine is French, with a creative Asian fusion, but she’s a fan of all good flavors and interesting culinary techniques.
