Looking to spice up your cooking skills this fall? Let Chef Ruby of Fresh Zen Foods take you on a journey through the flavors of traditional Asian cuisine. Not only will you learn how to cook these classic and delicious meals, but Chef Ruby will also explain how to modify these recipes so you can easily recreate these dishes at home.
In this lively hands-on cooking class you’ll learn how to utilize the produce and products of the farmers and artisans of the Boston Public Market. Guided by Chef Ruby you’ll create an exciting multi-course meal based on seasonal, local food, and increase your comfort in the kitchen through new knife skills, techniques, and flavor profiles. Come ready to roll up your sleeves and get cooking! The majority of ingredients for the day’s cooking and baking will be straight from The Boston Public Market, proving you can buy local, eat local and still achieve international flavors.
In addition to learning a new cooking style, you’ll enjoy tastes of three local New England wines that pair perfectly with recipes we’ll be making, courtesy of The Massachusetts Wine Shop.

About Chef Ruby Chan
Ruby grew up in a family where food was everything. Her father was the consummate Asian restaurant connoisseur & restaurant owner and her mom was a sous-chef. In 1996 a passion for cooking and teaching brought Ruby a change of careers, and the start of FreshZen, a company devoted to creating all-natural, small-batch artisan sauces, and debuted the brand’s signature Ginger Scallion Sauce, based on a family recipe. With no preservatives and comprised of four ingredients – fresh ginger and scallions, along with kosher salt and canola oil – the sauce becomes the perfect accompaniment to chicken, beef, turkey, and fish, and enables busy people to whip up great-tasting Modern Asian meals with minimal preparation time. Look for it in the refrigerated section of local retailers, including Red’s Best at Boston Public Market, Pemberton Farms in Cambridge, Volante Farms, Stacy’s Juicebar, Brookline Grown, Allandale Farm, Broadway Market.
