These flavours come from India (curries and spices) in the west, China (seasonings and cooking methods) in the east, and the Americas (chilies). In this workshop you will learn how to create key dishes from Asian cuisine:
- Laksa – Laksa is a noodle soup from Southeast Asia. It’s fragrant flavour is defined by the paste created to dilute the broth This dish can be made with chicken, prawns or vegetables (Vegan)
- Dal Makhani with Punjabi Aloo Parathas – A luxurious black lentil and kidney bean dal dish with a delicate balance of flavours. Make a spice blend and Aloo Parathas (a flatbread stuffed with spiced potato) – perfect accompaniment to Dal Makhani (Vegan)
- Spring Rolls – A popular starter dish made with a filling of duck or jackfruit (Vegan) and crisp vegetables. Learn how to roll the wrappers and create this wonderful starter.
All dishes made can be taken away and enjoyed at home, and suitable for a plant-based diet.
