When Kathy's son Scott and daughter-in-law Chrissy got married, they embarked on a fantastic adventure traveling the world. They've sampled fare from Venice to Vietnam at every conceivable type of eatery --- fine dining and street food alike. Most of their favorites came from the latter. Chrissy would love to recreate these delicious foodie memories for you in this class that will be as interesting as it is instructive. Don't miss this one! We'll start out with a few small plates then move on to a perfect, Asian comfort food meal
Street Food Sampler
Irishman's Takoyaki-a street food staple in Japan, but lucky for you, we're using potatoes instead of the octopus. Fantastic & fun!
Theoboki - lovely little rice cakes with a fabulous traditional Korean sauce
The rest of the menu has become a standard favorite meal in Scott & Chrissy's kitchen. It's a great meal for any time of year, perfect comfort food, whether you're in Asia or the Americas---the East's answer to meat and potatoes.
Sesame Ginger Salmon - so simple and so full of flavor! Just a quick soak in an Asian marinade before baking will make this easy dish a staple in your household. Perfect for those nights when you don't feel like REALLY cooking. ginger, garlic, brown sugar and soy all play a starring role in this tantalizing dish. Good enough for company, simple enough for every day.
Mushroom Rice - this always accompanies the salmon as it's easy to prepare, and has as many variations as the households in which it's prepared. Fresh vegetables and those signature Asian flavors make this a favorite.
Veggie Ribbon Salad - you'll have this pretty, fresh salad on the table in minutes. It's dressed with a super simple dressing with an ingredient you've probably never used before (but we're pretty sure you will now!)
Swiss Chard with Pork Belly - the collard greens of the Far East.
We'll finish the evening with some green tea and a ginger cookie. You'll leave feeling like you've taken a guided culinary tour of Asia.
