The Garden Kitchen Cooking Class – Asian Flavor
In this hands-on class, presented by the UA Cooperative Extension's Garden Kitchen, you will learn a variety of Asian-inspired dishes, as well as common flavor pairing, so you can experiment and create your own dishes at home!
We will practice important skills, including how to create a soup stock, proper technique to roll a spring roll, stir-fry technique and flavor combinations to create balanced Asian-style dishes. The menu will include garden fresh spring rolls with spicy peanut sauce, soba noodle stir-fry with mirin and soy and coconut lemongrass soup with shrimp. Additionally, there will be a special demonstration of the five elements of Chinese flavor, so that you can combine salty, sour, bitter, sweet and spicy flavors at home.
All proceeds from these classes go towards our free programming, empowering Pima County residents to build community wellness and make healthier choices through food, fitness and gardening education.
