Class Experience

1 large white onion
3-inch piece of fresh ginger
5 star anise
4 whole cloves
3 (3-inch) cinnamon sticks 
2 cardamom pods
1 tablespoon whole coriander seeds
8 cups good-quality beef stock (or chicken or vegetable stock)
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons fish sauce
fine sea salt, to taste

8 ounces raw steak, very thinly sliced (or chicken, pork, or shrimp)
7 ounces uncooked thin rice noodles
1/2 tablespoon of oil (sesame works great for this dish, but olive oil or veggie oil will work too!)

This will feed 2-3 people!

*Additional garnishes: fresh herbs (cilantro, mint, and/or Thai basil), bean sprouts, lime wedges, thinly-sliced chiles (Thai bird chiles or jalapeños), thinly-sliced onions (green onions or white onions), sauces (hoisin and/or sriracha).

*Please bring whatever you would like to add, not all of the additional garnishes are necessary :)

Kitchen tools needed: one large pot for broth, one medium/large skillet for onion, ginger and meat cooking (we will use twice), one medium/large pot to boil noodles, stove top utensils, mesh strainer (a normal colander will not work, as we need to strain out herbs. if you do not have a mesh strainer, a re-useable tea holder will work to place herbs in), knife, cutting board.
1 hour 10 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This is a cooking class that involves the use of the stove, oven, or knives. Parents must be present in case assistance or emergencies. Students may occasionally need to finish baking a dish after the scheduled time ends.

It is the your responsibility to review the ingredients each week and to let me know if there are any allergies so I can help you find an alternative. Thank you!
