Asian cooking has many styles, in this class you will focus on the south east region where flavor is king. Travel abroad using only your palate for a look into many of your favorite Asian dishes.

Each class is built upon techniques, with multiple recipes covering the various techniques. Although students will not have hands on experience with each recipe, they will learn techniques for each and be able to taste all completed dishes at the end of the class. All students will leave with a complete recipe packet at the end of the class.

Similar to a concert or sporting event, a​ll NGI programs are date-specific​. Therefore, all single-session classes, multi-day programs, and dinners are non-refundable and cannot be rescheduled to a later date. If you are unable to attend a class or dinner, you are welcome to send someone in your place.

Please email if you are cancelling your registration or transferring your spot to another person. Students who cannot attend a class are eligible to receive the recipes and materials covered in class.
