Cooking Class - Traditional Hawaiian Fare

Learn to recreate traditional Hawaiian dishes that tell the story of the island's culinary past.

In this hands-on class with Hawaiian native Chef Jessie, you will learn how to prepare an impressive menu featuring the true flavors, ingredients, and techniques of Hawaiian cuisine.

As you work your way through the menu, Chef Jessie will focus on showing you how vinegar, citrus, and heat have the ability to add just as much flavor to dishes as fats. From spicy and exotic shrimp tostadas to an Asian-inspired chicken adobo to a decadent and creamy coconut budino, these dishes are sure to transport your taste buds somewhere tropical.

Guests are welcome to provide wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

Chef Jessie is very inviting, her personality makes you feel welcomed right away. She is a wonderful instructor and her teaching is very hands on. Her knowledge of food is amazing and she answered any questions I had. The food was incredible and full of flavor! I would recommend Chef Jessie to anyone looking to have a great time and is ready to learn recipes you can replicate at home!
