Looking to spice up your cooking skills this spring and summer? Let Chef Alexis take you on a journey through the ancient region of Szechuan in China, where she recently spent a month exploring the local cuisine and discovering new recipes and techniques. Szechuan cuisine is known for intense flavor and spice, and using garlic, onion and chili peppers to kick it up a notch – prepare yourself for a flavor explosion!

In this lively, hands-on cooking class you’ll learn how to utilize the produce and products of the farmers and artisans of the Boston Public Market. Guided by Chef Alexis you’ll create an exciting multi-course meal based on seasonal, local food, and increase your comfort in the kitchen through new knife skills, techniques, and flavor profiles. Come ready to roll up your sleeves and get cooking! The majority of ingredients for the day’s cooking and baking will be straight from The Boston Public Market, proving you can buy local, eat local and still achieve international flavors.

In addition to learning a new cooking style, you’ll enjoy tastes of three local New England wines that pair perfectly with recipes we’ll be making, courtesy of The Massachusetts Wine Shop.
