re: cooking classes.
Tengu Natural Foods and Alishan Organic Center offer bilingual vegetarian cooking and baking classes with Pro Chefs from USA, Thailand and Japan. Best way to find out about them is either email and ask to be on mailing list or look at

They recently had a Thai vegetarian chef in residence for 2 weeks of classes. This fall we will have Chef Drew a CIA trained ( Culinary Institute of America) chef in residence. Yoshiko Imazato has taught numerous course with us. Her English is great and her teaching style is open and her food is good. She also teaches privately and to small groups on her own. Her contact is

Good luck.
