A staple of Filipino home cooking, Chef Nancy presents adobo in a whole new context.

Adobo is not just a recipe – it is a way of cooking and preserving food with the perfect flavor combination of salty, sour, creamy, nutty and umami. This menu will feature a wide range of adobo dishes, each with its own distinct flavor base.

Begin with an appetizer of grilled adobo seafood or chicken skewers. Your entrée is baked crusted pork belly with sides of salted egg tomato salsa and sweet pickled green papaya. You will also make your own warm garlic mushroom and tofu salad and adobo wild rice pilaf. Your meal concludes with palitaw, a sweet rice dumpling with grated coconut and burnt sesame seeds.

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

The best cooking class I’ve attended! Nancy is a fabulous chef. The food was delicious! She was so kind and made us feel like part of the family. I loved how she educated us on the food origins and the Philippines while teaching us how to cook the meal. She even helped celebrate my friend’s birthday. I highly recommend her and would love to go back again.

Chef Nancy made our experience unforgettable! I booked her class as a surprise for a friend's birthday and she went all out with balloons, music, and decorations. She and her husband were so welcoming and made everyone feel like part of the family. Communication with Nancy was like messaging with a close friend. Her food was incredible and my friends couldn't stop talking about the special dessert she planned for the evening. Thank you Nancy for your hospitality and expertise!
