All ages!
All Online cooking classes include interactive cooking instruction, a virtual dinner party, a packet with the instructor's family recipes, and a video recording of the class. Since the price is per device, feel free to invite your partner, kids, or roommates to join!

Since Shandra can’t physically welcome you into her home, she wants to do so virtually!

Our online classes are designed to be special, meaningful opportunities to share cooking, culture, and connection--just like our real life experiences. We want you to cook along, and we promise there will be plenty of time for questions, conversation, and stories. It will all end with a virtual dinner party where you'll get to share in the fruits of your labor, apart, but together!

In this 2.5 hour interactive online experience Shandra will guide you through making two of her family recipes. First, Shandra will show you how to start and build her fragrant gulai udang ala padang (a rich shrimp and potato curry made with coconut milk, lemongrass, ginger, shallots, garlic, fresh turmeric, chilis, lime leaves, and galangal). You'll also learn how to make her recipe for nasi kuning with all the fixings (an aromatic jasmine rice dish cooked in coconut milk, seasoned with lemongrass, pandan leaves, bay leaves, lime leaves, and turmeric, topped with fried shallots and slivered egg omelette)..

Here’s how it works:

After registration you’ll receive an email with the Zoom link, shopping list, equipment list, and recipe packet.
