Taste of Vietnam
Cooking class


You will be using traditional Vietnamese cooking techniques to recreate local dishes and classic favourites drawing on the three main culinary regions of Vietnam: the hearty food of the North, the imperial cuisine from the Centre, and the sweeter and spicier food from the tropical South. 


We will be prepping, cleaning, chopping, slicing, shredding and cooking together around a large kitchen table in an intimate fun hands-on class before sitting down to enjoy the fruits of your labour.

You will gain an understanding of how a Vietnamese meal has to be a harmonious balance between the tastes and textures. We apply the principles of the five elements and also of yin and yang. Every meal must have spicy, sour, bitter, salty and sweet flavours. They also must have crunchy, crisp, chewy, soft and silky textures. They do not need to be equal but they do need to be balanced.

You will also explore the restaurant's herb garden and find out how herbs are what makes Vietnamese cuisine special and different from our Asian neighbours as the herbs bring unique flavours and texture to our meals as well as containing important vitamins and minerals. Once you start to understand which herbs combine well with other produce, you can start to cook Vietnamese food properly!

I believe if I can cook then anyone can cook. And, be sure to bring a big appetite to this class - there’s a lot of food!
