Ever wondered how to include more vegetables in your favorite international cuisines? This class will teach you to make Mexican and Italian flavored meals with accompanying sauces. You will learn to be creative using different vegetables and flavorful sauces while using modern appliances for quick and easy cooking. Please bring containers to take leftover food.

Menu:

  • Quesadilla with black beans, vegetables, Mexican cheese and flavors
  • Quesadilla with vegetables, cheese and Italian sauce
  • Falafel sandwich with falafel balls, tahini sauce and fresh ingredients
  • Thai pineapple fried rice made with fresh pineapple and vegetables

We will teach you creative cooking methods so you can match your personal tastes and diet needs. Unlike most cooking classes, we are not about teaching specific recipes. Our goal is that with practice you can cook using your imagination without detailed recipes.

Our curriculum is based on Design Thinking, a creative problem solving approach, taught at Stanford. Learn creative cooking using a variety of ways:

  • Different cooking methods like cooktop, grilling, baking
  • Fresh ingredients like vegetables, tomato, onion, garlic, ginger
  • Pantry items like frozen vegetables, canned and dry legumes
  • Variety of spices and spice blends
  • Modern appliances like instant pot, pressure cooker, grill, food processor, blender

We will also share with you a helpful list of pantry items with long shelf life. We want to enable you to cook healthy and tasty food even when you don’t have time to shop for fresh ingredients.

You will have the chance to demonstrate your creativity during hands-on cooking experiences in the class. Enjoy the food we cook during the class and please bring containers to take leftover food.
