Learn to make simple, yet elegant Japanese comfort food with Chef Melissa.

In this interactive cooking class, Chef Melissa will teach you how to make three classic Asian comfort foods. She will be your guide as you learn new skills and techniques in order to put these flavorful dishes together.

First, whip up a popular Japanese street food with known as okonomiyaki, which is a savory pancake piled high with delicious toppings. Then, prepare a yellow miso-mustard broth and use it to cook the ramen, adding sushi-grade Hokkaido scallops to accompany it. Chef Melissa sources these scallops from the renowned northern Hokkaido region in Japan, which benefits from nutrient and plankton rich water. Finally, end your Japanese meal with a stack of matcha crêpes topped with ice cream.

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