Class Description

Looking for a class with lots of technique moments and fewer recipes? This is the class for you. Immigration can lead to some beautiful new culinary traditions. Just look at Chifa Cuisine in Peru. This cuisine, which blends Chinese and Peruvian ingredients, developed when Chinese immigrants first came to Peru in the late 19th century. It quickly became woven into the fabric of Peruvian culture. As a kid, coming home to my mom cooking Arroz Chaufa de Pollo could often mean the difference between a good day and a bad day. In this class, we’ll be learning some of the staples of Chifa cooking, like Chicken and BBQ Pork Lo Mein. We’ll also be comparing and contrasting Chinese-American food with Chinese-Peruvian food. This will show us how immigrants’ access to different ingredients can vastly affect the culinary traditions that arise from immigration. At the end of this class, we will be hosting a roller coaster ride for your taste buds with a tasting. Don’t worry, there will be plenty of samples to take home too!
