Join Chef Melissa on a nostalgic culinary tour through her hometown of Taiwan.

This hands-on cooking class with Chef Melissa will transport you to the bustling street markets of Taiwan. She'll share how the island's diverse culture has influenced her cooking style as you prepare some of the most-loved dishes from her youth.

Begin by simmering a simple, comforting egg drop soup made from Chef Melissa's own homemade stock. Then, you'll stir-fry fiery kung pao chicken along with tender bok choy to serve over fragrant steamed rice. Finally, bake an iconic street food dessert: Taiwanese sponge cake flavored with honey butter.

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

Melissa provides an amazing, unique, super fun experience. She makes you feel so comfortable and at home right when you walk in her door. She has an incredibly impressive background and so much knowledge to share — and she makes the evening so fun, informal, and informative. The food was delicious, and Melissa’s energy and enthusiasm was even better. Can’t recommend this experience enough!!

Chef Melissa is amazing! She creates unforgettable experiences full of care. The moment I stepped into her home I felt welcomed and excited to learn from such an experienced woman with great taste. She is not only a talented cook and a clear communicator, but also so much sweet and funny and fun. Her joy and attention to detail when preparing food is infectious.
