In a Culture Kitchen class, recipes and cooking methods are taught by people who have been cooking with them for their entire lives. These are recipes that have been time tested over generations! Students can pitch in and learn hands on or just watch until they feel ready. The classes are a lively exchange of questions and discoveries about food, customs, and ingredients, making for a rich, multi-layered experience. Currently Culture Kitchen is offering classes in Mexican, Vietnamese and Indian cooking.
If you don't live in the Bay Area you can still learn a lot from the program's website which has recipes, chef's bios and a few videos. Culture Kitchen is also looking for what they call their Ambassadors -- people who are willing to test recipes and give regular feedback about the project which is in Beta.
