This class focuses on authentic and traditional Chinese dishes you can recreate at home.

In this Chinese food cooking class with Chef Vanessa, you'll learn how to prepare three classic Chinese recipes that are simple yet full of flavor, and easy to recreate at home again and again.

Begin by cooking up scallion pancakes with a dipping sauce spiced with garlic and ginger. For the main course, Chef Vanessa will teach you how to make spicy kung pao shrimp, a stir-fry dish loaded with vegetables and peanuts. Finally, prepare a light dessert of poached pears with warm spices and star anise to end class on a sweet note.

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

Vanessa was a wonderful chef to learn from! She is very experienced in different cuisines and she is very personable and accommodating. I requested some dietary changes for my experience, and they were welcomed quite well- I learned lots of new alternatives to some sauces we used. She is open to all questions related to cooking, and has a very fun and kind personality. It was my first time having a cooking class and she made it well worth it.

Very nice experience, going to Chef home was amazing, She hosted us in a very nice house and well organized for the experience. She was very nice in suggesting also how to make the dishes at our home. Definitely recommended!

Chef Vanessa was so welcoming to my partner and I! For the first in person cooking class we did, this was a great experience. She was so accommodating as we usually stick to a vegan diet. I would sign up for a class with Chef Vanessa again!
