Asian Street food offers exciting and spicy flavours, quick cooking techniques and dishes that are perfect for parties but also great to serve tapas style as main meals.
The recipes are inspired from the bustling markets and roadside stalls around South East Asia, from Thailand to Laos, Vietnam and down through Malaysia and Indonesia.
You will learn how to use coriander, lemon grass, kaffir lime leaves, galangal, garlic, tamarind and chillies. How to whizz up fresh sambals, marinades and 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:
- Pad Thai
- Spicy Peanut Satay
- Crispy Sesame Tofu
- Aubergine Rendang Curry
- Garlic Fried Mung Beans
- Spicy Sambals, Marinades and Dipping Sauces
- Balinese Black Rice Pudding with Chilli Mango
The day will include knife skills, how to stir-fry and steam and 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.
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.
Delicious & inspiring. Exciting but also accessible - some recipes will definitely become regulars.
Excellent tutors - great knowledge of foods, cooking and recipes.
Very, very delicious!
