Looking to spice up your cooking skills this spring? Let Chef Alexis take you on a journey through the ancient region of Szechuan in China, where she recently spent a month exploring the local cuisine and discovering new recipes and techniques. Szechuan cuisine is known for intense flavor and spice, and using garlic, onion and chili peppers to kick it up a notch - prepare yourself for a flavor explosion!

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 Alexis 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 Alexis Daniels

Alexis began catering at 13-years-old in the San Francisco Bay Area, and launched her own private catering company at 16. Rather reluctantly, she closed her business and uprooted to chilly Boston to earn a BA in Anthropology, Community Health, and Fine Art from Tufts University. Delighted to learn food does in fact grow here too, she stayed a while longer and earned her Master’s in Occupational Therapy. After testing the waters in rehabilitation hospitals, clinics, and schools, she decided the kitchen best suits her creative, culinary mind! 

These days, she is Enrichment Programs Manager at the Acera School, a founding member of Eastie Farm (the neighborhood’s first non-profit urban farm), and an avid world traveller. Alexis is excited to extend her love of global cuisines to students at the Boston Public Market, through classes highlighting New England’s highest quality local food.
