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.

Chef Nancy and Bob were great hosts. They went the extra mile to make the evening memorable. The food was delicious and we will definitely try to prepare the same dishes ourselves

Had a fantastic time! Highly recommend Nancy if you’re in the mood to be educated about the Philippines while filling your belly with some authentic food. She was a wonderful host and definitely made me and my partner feel at home & welcomed.

Chef Nancy is an excellent host and entertainer. I thoroughly enjoyed the lessons she imparted on us and the welcoming atmosphere she created at her home. We ended up being a group of four and we each assisted in preparing one dish each. Chef Nancy explained each dish and encouraged us to taste various ingredient to understand the different flavor profiles. This a great environment for beginners and it isn’t intimidating at all for novice cooks.
