Join us for an immersive 3 day vegan Asian cooking course.
This course is inspired from our travels around the world, from Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia through to China, Korea and India.
Learn how to cook vegan plant-based Asian dishes that are boldly flavoured and nutritious, beautiful looking and easy to make, using quick cooking techniques, perfect for both dinner parties and livening up every day meals.
We will show you how to use Asian ingredients such as coriander, lemongrass, fresh root turmeric, kaffir lime leaves, galangal, curry leaves, garlic, tamarind and chillies. You will become familiar with spices such as cumin and coriander, mustard seeds and fenugreek and more unusual spices such as Sichuan pepper, asafoetida and amchoor. You will learn how to make your own fresh spice blends and curry pastes.
