Everytime I go to 17th Street Market, I wish that I had a chef whispering in my ear telling me how to prepare the many different produce items available.
Slow Food Tucson read my thoughts because on Sunday November 8, that’s exactly what will happen. 17th Street Market presents an international cooking class featuring Chef Allen Yap from Neo of Melaka, a Malaysian restaurant, and Chef Ryan Jarrell from Vila Thai. (Psst, Vila Thai is my favorite Thai restaurant in Tucson.)
The event begins with a tour of the 17th Street Market by the chefs as they unlock the mystery of ingredients used in these two Southeast Asian cuisines, followed by a cooking class and lunch. Beverages will include non-alcoholic drinks from around the world and bottled water.
Attendees receive a 10% discount on all items purchased at the market after lunch. The culinary fun starts at 11:30 a.m. and lunch will be served at 2 p.m. 17th Street Market is located at 840 E. 17th Street. The cost is $40 for Slow Food Tucson members and $50 for non members for class and lunch. Please RSVP by October 31.
