I recently received an email from one Natalie Keng in which she announced an upcoming, two-part culinary adventure. Natalie, accompanied by her mother Margaret, offers these educational experiences from time to time. This is not a traditional cooking class; rather, you will have the opportunity to learn through lecture. However, this does not sound like some boring oration as the class includes a field trip.
The sessions, which take place the last week of March, are offered through the Evening at Emory program. The class will incorporate classic Chinese dishes along with elements of Southern cuisine. While I don’t know Natalie, she was delightful to speak with over email. Full details and a link to the flier after the jump:
