Go beyond your typical sub sandwich with spicy and savory Vietnamese bánh mì.

Bánh mì sandwiches are a renowned Vietnamese specialty consisting of a baguette stuffed with various meats and vegetables. In this cooking class with Chef Ricky, you'll learn how to create your own bánh mì sandwiches completely from scratch.

First, you'll prepare shrimp spring rolls filled with vegetables, herbs and vermicelli noodles. Then Chef Ricky will teach you how to make bánh mì with lemongrass chicken, pickled vegetables, cilantro and spicy mayonnaise, and sweet potato fries on the side. Finish with a favorite Asian dessert — mango sticky rice.

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

We’ve attended a couple of Ricky’s classes, and he genuinely cares about teaching and the needs of his students. He can answer whatever questions you need to know about Asian cuisine, and if there is time, he can show or discuss a variation on a recipe. Truly wonderful! He will change the way you cook and eat.

Recently attended the Sushi Omakase class; what an amazing experience ! Knowing that I did not enjoy anything raw, Chef Ricky went out of his way to accommodate my request, searing any ingredients that could be cooked, while maintaining all of its deliciousness. Chef Ricky is very talented, his depth of culinary knowledge and passion for everything edible is obvious; highly recommend all of his classes.

Chef Ricky did an amazing job demonstrating and enjoying this cooking class very much! He made us feel very welcome and was very patient with the class. I loved the atmosphere and enjoyed the background music. I will definitely be taking another class with Chef Ricky and recommend friends and family to take this class.
