In Chef Jonathan’s hands-on cooking class, you’ll learn to combine the trifecta of flavors — salty, savory and sweet — to create a single menu of artful Asian cuisine.
Begin with a mushroom dashi soup served with savory garlic tofu and a saliferous combination of soy sauce and fish sauce, all perfumed by the licorice-like notes of star anise. Next, prepare ahi tuna to be served with a mildly sweet lotus root puree and fashion a spicy salmon roll with a zesty ginger avocado cream. For dessert, complete the menu with matcha Japanese sweet potato fritters.
