Scallion Noodles & Chili Oil Flashed Greens ~ Cooking Class
I love cuisines that have balanced flavors: salty, sweet, sour, spice, and umami. And these noodles have all that and more! In this class we'll be making two Chinese classics: fragrant scallion noodles and Cantonese-style earthy greens with flashed with hot oil. Won't you join us?

About the Event
I remember my favorite childhood Chinese restaurant; it was a sit-down place with beautiful tablecloths and the food was always fragrant, hot, and perfect. And I always loved the noodles. But, as I've grown up, it seems that nothing (except a few places I've visited in larger cities while traveling and especially one place I visited in Toronto...wow that was good) can match that one magical place. And I've had my share of Chinese takeout. But, most of the time, those noodles aren't a menu item and what I end up getting doesn't knock my socks off. The best dishes have all the good stuff: salty, sweet, sour, umami,
is too salty and udeI grew up eating Cuban food in South Florida and not just in restaurants. I have Cuban friends, Cuban family, and some of my warmest food memories of childhood are centered around this amazing cuisine. It's really special. AND DELICIOUS.
My favorite dishes are light and bright with just the right amount of salt, sweet, heat, and acid. You know when people talk about the perfect single bite of food? Mine is rice, beans, a bit of sweet plantain, extra limey onions, and a little nibble of crispy griddled chicken. To me, there's nothing better. And I think you may agree after this two-part series.
In this half of the series, we'll be making your choice of mojo-marinated chicken, pork, or shrimp with citrusy griddled onions and a lime custard for dessert!
For my gluten-free friends, these recipes are right up your alley!
Come and join me as we make your new favorite cuisine. We'll have tons of fun and learn lots of culinary techniques along the way!
Class will be Thursday, February 4th at 5pm EST.
This is Part 2 of the Cuban food series. For those who missed Part 1 and want those recipes, let me know!
And, as always, this class makes use of some items from your perfect pantry ingredients!
