Icon indicating the class is social distancing friendly Social Distancing Friendly
Icon indicating the host requires proof of vaccine Host Requires Proof of Vaccine

Learn six Chinatown-inspired recipes so you can recreate your personal favorite Chinese-American fare.

American-Chinese food is firmly rooted in the immigrant neighborhoods of San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles and other major cities. In this cooking class, Chef Linda will introduce you to many of the "classic" dishes enjoyed today that began as simple fare over 150 years ago.

Begin by learning basic culinary prep work and knife skills so you can quickly prepare a buffet of favorites, including crunchy egg rolls with homemade sauce, wonton or hot and sour soup, and two entrées of your choosing accompanied by lo mein noodles or fried rice.

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