Monday July 25th | 5:00pm – 8:00pm

Island Community Center, Stonington

with Harry Kaiserian

Cooking Class:

Join Harry to explore Korean, Chinese and Japanese cuisines and techniques.  You will prepare a complete meal combining the 3 related but different cultures and consisting of some very well received recipes.

Did you know that fortune cookies originated in Japan?  Broccoli is an Italian vegetable so how can China claim "beef and broccoli" as a native dish?  In English, "chop suey" means "this and that" so it is akin to ordering "left-overs" and, oh yeah, it was invented in America.  Come taste your way through a quick tour of iconic Asian dishes. From Korea: bulgogi, kimchi, poached pears. From Japan: cucumber pickle, spinach salad. From China: velvet corn soup, almond snow and the best beef and broccoli you have ever tasted.


Harry Kaiserian's penchant for ethnic foods, coupled with his career in the Navy, has led him into kitchens around the world. He now calls Castine home and shares his knowledge and enthusiasm through a weekly cooking column "K's Kwisine' which is published in the Castine Patriot, Weekly Packet, and Island Ad-Vantages.
