Asian Fusion

Finding plant-based Asian food can be a challenge and we seem to have mastered it.  In this incredible class our beautiful chef, Lisa, from Saucy Wench takes us on a journey with traditional food from her home town.  These dishes are Cantonese and are meals Lisa’s grandmother taught her back in Malaysia so they are extremely authentic.  In addition to the food, Lisa will take you on a journey with beautiful family stories to share with us.
