Cooking after work or school can be
a chore. Gathering the right ingredients, perfecting the recipe and finding the
time to put in all that elbow grease in your The Isle apartment is no easy
feat. But if your fast food receipts are piling up and you’re looking to take
some more control over your diet, homecooking is the way to go!
Helping locals find their way around
the kitchen is the mission of Let’s Cultivate Food, which offers catering and
cooking classes in home or out of a Manyunk studio that’s just six blocks from
your The Isle apartment. From award-winning chef Yoon Lee, Let’s Cultivate Food
aims to arm locals with tips and tricks to bring out the most flavorful and
healthy elements of their food—all while showing them the basics of cooking
that everyone from budding chefs to first-timers in the kitchen will
Let’s Cultivate Food offers up to
five classes per week, all with a different theme. Upcoming classes feature
sushi, dumplings, Thai and pho. While the chef demonstrates, the classes are
hands-on, so students are encouraged to roll up their sleeves and dive into
each dish. Lee’s dishes aren’t your garden variety meals—they’re packed with
perfectly seasoned and seared veggies and other fresh ingredients and crafted
using a ton of different techniques. So if you can master the approaches in the
class, you can make just about anything in your The Isle apartment!
Many of the classes offer
complimentary drinks, themed to the culinary creations being made—such as sake
for the sushi classes and wine at the dumpling sessions. Students are also
encouraged to BYOB. And get ready for lots of interactive fun and giveaways!
Even though finding time to cook can
be a challenge, at Let’s Cultivate Food, learning how to cook is anything but!
