In this class series, adventuresome young chefs will explore three Asian cuisines – Thai, Chinese and Vietnamese – making a classic dish from each.

Pho is the national dish of Vietnam. Like many Vietnamese dishes, Pho has strong French influences. Flavored with warm spices like star anise and cinnamon, the smokiness of charred onion, and brightened by lime, Pho is a rich bone broth – traditionally beef – served with slurpy soft rice noodles and tender meat, piled high with fresh herbs like cilantro, mint and basil.

Students ages 7 and younger must have an adult remain in the kitchen at all times. All parents are welcome to stay, watch, participate and eat! Please contact us directly at with any food allergy or safety issues.

Classes are $45. Contact 1400 Food Lab regarding a discount for signing up for all three Asian cooking classes in advance.
