“Year of the Rooster” Cooking Class

rooster-w.jpgWith the Year of the Rooster winding down and Thanksgiving just around the corner, a class in cooking poultry Chinese-style will take place on Sunday, November 13, in Chinatown.

Winter melon chicken velvet soup, Hainan chicken and rice, soy sauce chicken, and chicken stir fried with black beans and peppers will be the featured recipes. Chinatown boasts the freshest poultry in town and so it is fitting that tips on selecting a chicken, the various types of chickens, uses for chicken, and how to cut a chicken will all be covered.

Jet Tila, chef and Asian cooking consultant, will lead the class sharing some of his Cantonese grandmother’s recipes along with some culled from Chinatown’s famed Mama Quon. The class will take place in Mama Quon’s old kitchen, located inside Grand Star Jazz Club at 943 Sun Mun Way in Central Plaza, Chinatown (947-951 N. Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90012).

The class will be held on Sunday, November 13, from 10:30 to 1:00 p.m. The cost is $50 per participant and includes materials and lunch. Class size is limited to 15 participants. A credit card will be required for reservations. To reserve a space please call 213.680.0243 or email info [at] chinatownla [dot] com.
