Learn how to create an extraordinary vegetarian meal with Asian flair under Chef Greg's guidance.
The culinary traditions of Asia are built on a foundation of fresh ingredients, and lend themselves very well to a vegetarian diet. Join Chef Greg to learn how to make four Asian plant-focused dishes from scratch.
Start with a refreshing cold Thai-scented avocado soup with a tangy cucumber-apple relish. Next, learn how to make crispy spring rolls bursting with flavor and seared mushroom teriyaki with carrot and ginger purée, baby milk tips and spinach. To finish, whip up a classic mango sticky rice.

Chef Greg was great! He was fun, easy going, and really good at adapting to my small apartment kitchen. He brought all his own supplies and ingredients. I would recommend this experience to friends!

We had an excellent cooking experience with Chef Greg.
We signed up for the "Vegetarian Favorites of Asia" course for a date night, and we absolutely loved it. Chef Greg encouraged us to participate, and we gladly took him up on it. This was one of the best experiences that I've been a part of, and I recommend it 100%.

We absolutely loved it! Chef Greg was amazing, professional, and the food was entirely delicious - in particular, something unique that would be extremely hard to find in restaurants (if at all). So, it was perfect and will look for his events again.

Couldn’t recommend Chef Greg enough. He was so kind, knowledgeable, and at the end when he plated our dishes, we couldn’t believe it was a home cooked dinner. Would definitely book again.

Chef Greg is the coolest! Had a great time hanging with him in the kitchen and learning from him. He’s such an interesting storyteller which made for a great atmosphere while he demonstrated each dish. Also loved the cultural diversity of his dishes which were super tasty. I would definitely recommend an experience with him!

Wow….From start to finish my wife could only describe our night as “the best birthday gift you’ve ever given me.” Chef Greg was awesome, personable and most importantly a fantastic cook. We enjoyed everything and loved that at the end our kitchen was cleaner than when he arrived and we didn’t have to worry about an Uber home as we were already there. Really a fantastic night. Thanks Chef for making everything so fun and memorable. Will definitely be doing this again soon.

Chef Greg was fantastic! We didn't know what to expect with someone coming into our kitchen and teaching us. However, he blew us all away! he is extremely knowledgeable and thinks fats on his feet. The food was AMAZING! I have cooked Paella before but never in my life would I taste food so good!
Chef Greg brought all the ingredients and all his own tools. He served my girlfriend and I, and while we were chowing down chef Greg did all out dishes to boot! Highly recommend this experience to all!

Wow! What a great experience with Chef Greg! Not only did we get to enjoy an unforgettable meal, we got to participate in preparing some of the dishes as well which was fun and interactive. Everything was so delicious, the pan tomate will be a new go to for us! The tortilla was light and fluffy! The paella was incredible and the pear dessert OMG! The flavors in there were spectacular. Hire Chef Greg for your next dinner party or private dinner, you will not be disappointed! Loved it, thanks Greg!

Chef Greg was AMAZING. I booked this as a surprise for my boyfriends birthday. This was such an awesome experience. His energy is amazing, he’s funny, and the way he moves in the kitchen is phenomenal. All while talking you through what he’s doing. He includes you through the process as much as you like. The whole experience was fun, the menu was DELICIOUS. I never had a pear taste so good. I am so glad that we booked Chef Greg. Thank you Chef!

Chef Greg provided a sensational experience! I surprised my boyfriend with the Cooking Class - Culinary Delights of Spain for his birthday and we couldn't have asked for a better birthday evening! The meal was out of this world and Chef Greg was so experienced and knowledgable without being pretentious! I wasn't sure how the rioja-poached pears would be but they were scrumptious and so light that I woke up dreaming about them! Cant wait to hire Chef Greg again and I have already recommended him to two friends since last night!
