A wide variety of Asian cooking classes are being offered at Piedmont Adult School this fall. Upcoming classes include Asian Chicken Dishes, Winter Sushi and Nigiri Workshop, Simple Skewered Food, Asian Seafood, Holiday Dim Sum Workshop, and Asian Appetizers and Small Plates.
In these active, hands-on classes, students receive instruction on ingredients and techniques, and then break into small groups to prepare the recipes. The class then comes together to enjoy the meal they have created.
The Asian cooking classes are taught by instructor Chat Mingkwan. A native of Thailand, Mingkwan began preparing Thai food as a child, working alongside his mother and aunt in their successful restaurant and hotel. He was classically trained in cooking in Rayon, France. Mingkwan has traveled throughout Southeast Asia, studying the local cuisines. He is currently a cooking teacher, author, food and restaurant consultant, and Asian antique trader.
