Embark on a culinary journey with Chef Liza to create authentic homemade hummus, harissa and more!

This hands-on cooking class is focused on exploring ingredient sourcing and cooking techniques associated with Israeli foods, with an emphasis on the health benefits of each ingredient.

Chef Liza is great and I highly recommend taking a class with her. She is really fun to work with and has great tips if you're looking to make cooking easier. She is knowledgeable and informative - she explains her reasoning behind the techniques she uses and she also makes great food!

I wish I could give Chef Liza more than 5 stars! The entire Asian experience was amazing! Not only were her cooking and instructing skills phenomenal, she was also extremely prepared and organized! Chef Liza's preparation and thoughtful instruction approach made for a super fun time that easily could have been complete chaos with our big crazy group. Even though we were a bunch of newbie's the food came out delicious thanks to her help! I cannot wait to try her other classes!

I've have the wonderful opportunity to be part a few of Chef Liza's cooking classes. Each one, no matter what type of cuisine, is such an amazing and unique experience! From Asian cooking to Italian, Chef Liza truly is a master at teaching your group, big or small, while also bringing so much fun to the kitchen! I couldn't recommend her more!
