Cooking Class: Classic Udon Ramen and Pad Thai

There's a variety of noodle dishes across Asian cuisine, and in this cooking class with Chef Aleck, you will learn how to prepare both a Japanese and a Thai-style noodle. 

Begin with an umami-rich vegetarian ramen made with udon noodles, fresh vegetables and crispy tempura. After that, Chef Aleck will teach you how to make pad Thai, a stir-fried noodle dish topped with a sweet and spicy peanut sauce and Thai-braised beef.

Chef Aleck’s vegan food blew me away. He prepared a breakfast meal for a mixed audience that included 1 vegan. Usually, in a similar circumstance, the non-vegan diners would be left saying something like, “that was pretty good, for vegan food”. This was certainly not the case with Aleck’s vegan fare. The flavors were impeccably curated & fully fledged. Not once did thoughts like, “this would be great with some meat/dairy” ever enter my mind. I even asked him if he could teach me how to recreate the meal at home for my Queen!

Chef Aleck's years of experience shines through in seemingly simple home cooked food that is bursting with flavor. He was so fun to watch in the kitchen and kept us all entertained as he created, hands down, the best vegan meal I've ever had the pleasure of eating. Absolutely delicious!

I recently did one of Aleck’s dinners with some friends. The food was excellent. He is very creative and knows how to blend flavors and textures in a way that I’ve never known possible. The chicken dish was awesome. It was something he created. Aleck is a very gracious and convivial host. Thanks Aleck for an awesome food experience.
