Explore the bold flavors and rich palates of Southeast Asia in a cooking class at the 700 Kitchen Cooking School located at the Mansion on Forsyth Park.
This interactive class doubles as a culinary tour and invites guests to recreate some of the region’s most fragrant and sumptuous dishes. The first class is scheduled for Aug. 6 from 6 p.m to 9 p.m.
Class menu items include Shoya Ramen, Chinese Pork Dumplings, Korean Bibimbap, Vietnamese Basil Rolls and Thai-Style Chicken with Massaman Curry.
Spaces are limited to 16 guests at $99 per person, but private classes can also be arranged.
The new Grand Tour series of classes were designed to give locals and tourists a taste of international cuisine. Daniel Herget, Executive Chef at The Mansion on Forsyth Park, said, “I think we all missed out on a lot of travel this past year and a half, these Grand Tour classes are a way to experience different cuisines and cultures for right here in Savannah.”
The cooking classes are planned for any level of experience and are very hands-on. “I think our classes work well for every level of cook. So if you are a beginner, don’t be shy. Likewise if you’re a little more experienced, it’s a great place to hone your skills and have a good time,” said Herget.
In addition to the Grand Tour: Southeast Asia, other classes will focus on the Caribbean and South American cuisine. Other classic choices include Champagne Brunch, Low Country Staples and elegant date nights. Herget said, “Expect to have fun, learn a lot, and make some new friends.”
