Asian Street food offers exciting and spicy flavours, quick cooking techniques and dishes that are perfect for summer parties but also great to serve as main meals with large plates of colourful salads.
The recipes are inspired from my travels around South East Asia. From Thailand to Laos, Vietnam & down through Malaysia & Indonesia. As a vegetarian I have always found that the freshest most interesting tasty food is found in the bustling markets and roadside stalls.
You will learn how to use coriander, lemon grass, kaffir lime leaves, galangal, garlic, tamarind and chillies. How to whizz up fresh sambals, marinades & dips without the ubiquitous fish sauce. How to make tofu taste really delicious. We will also show you how to use ingredients such as green papaya, black rice and mung beans and where to source them.
There will be lots of tasting as we work on balancing the flavours of the dishes.
The course is hands on with some demonstration and you will make street food such as:
The day will include knife skills, how to stir-fry & steam & lots of chefs tips and techniques. There will be several breaks for tastings and refreshments during the day and we will finish with a shared meal which you will have made and organic wines or juices.
For each course we choose the recipes that fit the season, depending on time of year and the availability and seasonality of produce. You will receive a pack of all of the recipes we have made during the day so that you can recreate them at home.
Time: 10:00am - 4:30pm
