Plan the perfect date night with a totally hands on, internationally unique and mouthwateringly delicious dim sum cooking class. You and your date will create a variety of dim sum delights, beginning with handmade bao buns: fresh soft dough rolled out and stuffed with a savory ground turkey filling. Next, we prepare individual pot stickers, filled with sautéed chopped veggies, lemongrass shrimp and Asian spices. You and your date will cool off with a cold sesame noodle salad followed by fresh & creamy tropical parfaits: sweet & tart yogurt layered with diced mango, shredded coconut and crunchy chia seeds. Every dish in this class is designed to be shared- the perfect if not only way to dine out on date night!
*This class may accommodate Dairy-Free and Vegetarian dietary restrictions. Sorry, Gluten-Free options not available.
About Chef Isabelle:
Born in a small village in Quebec, Canada, Isabelle grew up with an early appreciation of where her food originated—she often foraged, hunted and fished in the area’s rugged wild for the family meal. Even as a young girl, she appreciated that use of the freshest, highest quality ingredients should be the standard in the preparation of good food. The French Canadian learned the art of butchery from her dad, the local butcher, and she furthered her knowledge through specialty courses at the local college. Her family has owned and operated restaurants, as well as a catering business, for 25 years, and Isabelle grew up learning the ins and outs of the industry and culinary arts.
Adult & Date Night Classes:
Is there an age requirement for this class?
We ask that participants are 18+ years, or that they have completed a Kids’ Intermediate class (12+ years), as the tools and techniques will be similar.
What does "Hands On" mean?
Hands-on changes from class to class, but it generally means getting your hands dirty. From rolling sushi to slicing and dicing, the class will be designed around the theme and age group of the class. We'll provide the tools, so don't fret! Most of the tools are what you'd have at home, as we try to encourage taking the lessons learned in the class and apply them at home.
Is there a Dress Code?
We strongly recommend wearing clothes appropriate for the kitchen. Closed-toed shoes, sleeves above your elbows, and a way to tie up longer hair are all strongly recommended.
What do if I have a food sensitivity or restriction?
We've got substitutes prepared! Each time you purchase a ticket it will ask you to list your dietary restrictions. Please be as explicit as possible. If there's a class with a major component, ie. flour in pasta making, that might conflict with your sensitivity, we ask that you please consider another class that removes possible cross-contamination. Although we usually can accommodate nearly every allergy/diet restriction, there may be a chance we will not be able to for a particular class. If there is a concern, we will be sure to reach out to you and refund the ticket before the day of the class.
Do I need to bring my ticket to class?
Nope! We do check-ins by name so all you need to bring is your lovely self.
Is there a waiting list?
Unfortunately, our classes are on a first-come, first serve basis. If you're interested in joining our classes, we encourage you to sign up early!
Do you do private events?
We do! Please follow the link below which will show you which type of events we offer & how to schedule one: https://moonappetit.eventbrite.com
What's your refund policy?
We're happy to refund your ticket up to 24 hours before the event. This allows our chefs adequate time to prepare materials and ingredients for the class.
What if I have more questions?
Please reach out to us at the following email: EncinitasMarketing@Lazyacres.com
**Please note- this style of class does not include seating. Just like your kitchen at home, it’s easier to prep, chop, and slice while standing! Please wear comfortable shoes. Also, our kitchen tends to fluctuate occasionally in temperature. Please bring a jacket in the event the room gets a bit chilly. This class is subject to cancellation, please note it may be cancelled up to 24 hours prior to the class. In the event of a cancellation, a full refund will be offered!
