Cooking Class: Mastering Southeast Asian Cooking

Learn the recipes and techniques that make Southeast Asian cuisine so special in this hands-on cooking class from Chef Derrick. He'll share his secrets for recreating the most quintessential dishes from this popular culture. 

Begin with a simple blend of curry paste, coconut milk and peanut sauce for a creamy chicken satay, flavored with tangy cucumber relish. Then, prepare Thai-style eggplant with herbaceous basil and bell peppers. You'll also create kimchi fried rice topped with your choice of chicken, beef or shrimp, and whip up a fun sticky rice for dessert, made even sweeter with homemade coconut caramel sauce.
