Cooking Class - A Vegetarian Taste of Asia

Learn to create a variety of delicious Asian vegetarian dishes surrounded by the beauty of Chef Liila's edible yard.

In this hands-on Asian cooking class and meal, Chef Liila will teach you to make a variety of vegetarian dishes using fresh, local, and organic ingredients. The menu will vary seasonally but will focus on traditional Asian cooking techniques and recipes, including dishes from Thailand, Laos, and Chef Liila's native Philippines.

Many items that Chef Liila uses in her cooking actually come from her family's property, a garden sanctuary home to a wide range of vegetables, fruits, and herbs. She'll give you a tour of the property, where depending on the season you'll see sweet lemons, pineapple guavas, pomegranates, tomatoes, lemongrass, chilis, cilantro, and multiple types of kale.

Chef Liila has the most beautiful, perfect property I have ever seen. It is completely full of edible trees, plants, and bushes -- it feels like some sort of incredible botanical garden where everything is edible. From kinds of guava I've never seen before to types of kale I've never heard of to a rare Brazilian fruit that was absolutely foreign to me, this property has everything. And her food! The flavors were so beautiful and thoughtful, and the presentations were great. I can't wait till it's warm again to try and make Chef Liila's granita!

Chef Liila's place is amazing! She has so many of her own fruit trees, veggies, and herbs growing around her house and incorporates many into her dishes. I loved her vegetarian tacos and her quinoa salad with persimmons. Everything was so flavorful, satisfying, and also refreshing! I would love to go back and see what's in season next time I'm in LA!

I was born in Los Angeles and raised as a vegetarian and practitioner of yoga and meditation. My family's yoga and meditation center often had international visitors, which expanded and inspired my love of cooking. I got my culinary degree at the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York, focusing on simple recipes with a strong emphasis on holistic health. I merge ingredients that provide essential health benefits to create delicious tasting meals. No longer will vegetarian food have a bad rap.
