«As a chef we connect with our guests through our food, but we don’t often have the chance to share and explore the stories behind dishes with diners directly,» Chang said in a statement sent to Insider.

«These Online Experiences give us the opportunity to do that, while paving the way for chefs from around the world to connect with guests virtually from afar.»

In his class description, Chang says that the lesson will begin with everyone introducing themselves and showing what they’re working with in their own kitchens.

«I’ll tell you all about some of the one-pot recipes I’ve made during self-quarantine, and why having a few essential tools is all you really need for home cooking,» he adds. «Next, I’ll walk you through my favorite recipe for chicken and rice donabe (clay pot).»

Chang says the class will «walk through prep together,» learning how to properly wash and cook rice without a rice cooker and discussing how each person can make the dish «uniquely your own.»

«If we make any mistakes along the way, don’t worry. We’ll figure it out together,» he adds.
