Cooking ClassesPrint

Taste of Oriental Cooking is a project that Chef Alyssa Han developed after years of running a restaurant. Students have been both customers in China and people generally interested in oriental cookery. Thai cooking classes started as promotional incentives to regular customers and have been held in Alyssa's and her students' kitchens.

Classes in Finland are arranged in Helsinki Metropolitan Area in customers' home kitchens. In "Taste of Oriental Cooking" classes you can learn how to make 3-5 Thai, Chinese or Vietnamese courses + dessert as a set dinner.

Spring/Summer 2009 Thai Cooking Show

Since I have often been asked for cooking classes, I decided to have a weekend show at my restaurant starting Saturday March 21. The demonstration is combined with spring/summer food promotion that takes place every weekend at Brasserie Alyssa, No. 29 Lane 248, Taikang Lu, Shanghai. Whenever you feel like having Thai food at my restaurant, you will also have a chance to learn about cooking Thai food and to get a free dish from the demonstration while you are dining.
