December’s classes explore comforting dishes inspired by Vietnam, Thailand and China. You’ll also use seasonal ingredients and pantry staples — a good way to save money while eating well.

  • Dec. 7: Vietnam, Thailand (noon – 12:45 p.m.) – In this class, you’ll prepare a vegan pho. Pho is a Vietnamese dish of rice noodles in a warm broth. It can be topped with many herbs and sauces so you can season your pho exactly how you like it. You’ll also make a curry in a hurry – it’s rich and creamy, packed with veggies and flavor and takes less than 30 minutes!
  • Dec. 14: China (noon – 12:45 p.m.) – In this class, you’ll prepare four fast, fresh and delicious vegetable side dishes that are perfect for busy weeknights. Each one is ready in minutes! Say so long to bland and boring vegetables and hello to fantastic flavors that even the kids will adore.
