Cooking Class - Filipino-Style Chicken Barbecue

Get a taste of the Philippines' famed Aristocrat Restaurant chicken barbecue with Chef Nancy.

In the Philippines, The Aristocrat Restaurant is synonymous with chicken barbecue. The establishment's Asian-style barbecue and accompanying sides were developed through many years of recipe tests from the kitchen of its founder Engracia Reyes and her family that still runs it.

In this cooking class, you'll learn to prepare a vermicelli chicken soup, a vibrant fried rice dish with ground beef and sofrito and a fresh salad with shrimp paste dressing. The main course will be a classic Aristocrat-style chicken barbeque. The barbecue marinade, however, will remain a family secret. These dishes will be served family-style, garnished with memorable stories about the 80-year-old restaurant. Finally, you'll end the meal with an old-fashioned version of halo-halo.

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