This inspired me to host my own Vietnamese Cooking Classes, the only ones in the UK, where I give hands on demonstrations of up to ten typical Vietnamese dishes in each session. Its like the supper club - a lot of eating is involved except you also learn how to cook Vietnamese food too!
Vietnamese food is about the balance of flavours, of sweet, salty and sour – there is no measuring device that can ever match your own taste buds. We will make sauces together as well and I will introduce you to how we do it and share any knowledge I may have about all the health benefits of certain herbs and vegetables.
This often changes but we would make something like this and enjoy it all throughout the day:
It is mainly demonstration but you will get your hands on rolling summer rolls, prepping vegetables and ingredients and we will be eating throughout.
Beef Pho -
Bo La Lot
Chicken Salad With Carrot & Hot Mint
Roasted Seabass With Spring Onions & Soy Sauce
Stir Fried Morning Glory
Chinese Mustard leaf Soup With Tofu & Ginger
Braised Pork Belly With Coconut & Cider
We also go to the Vietnamese supermarkets where I can introduce you to my favourite brands and essentials for your cupboard.
The cost is £75 per person -payable by cheque or bank transfer.
If you would like to buy this as a gift for your friend(s) please email me.
