Join Marti Miller for this fun and delicious class where you will learn to make fresh spring rolls! The typical ingredients include slivers of cooked pork or shrimp (sometimes chicken), fresh herbs like basil and cilantro, lettuce, cucumbers, rice noodles, all wrapped in moistened rice paper. We will also learn how to make two dipping sauces. Bring your appetite! There will be plenty of food to share!
Marti was born and raised in Vietnam, and moved to Seattle for boarding school when she was 10 years old, with her sister and brother. Her mother and stepfather stayed behind in Vietnam until right before the fall of the country in 1975. They reunited in Seattle in 1973. Her mother started the original Vietnamese Restaurant at the corner of Curtis and Franklin here in Boise in 1976. Marti learned all aspects of cooking and business from her mother. The fascination with bringing cultures together started while watching her mom do cooking demos on Saturdays. Today Marti works as a Civil Engineer and has helped her teenage daughters start a salsa business (Marti's Salsa) to help them earn an allowance.
This will be a hands on class and include one glass of wine per reservation.
