Indulge in delicious food and learn to cook along the way
As soon as you step in to Nico and Belinda Moretti's home for their Cooking Passion classes there is an inviting and friendly ambience akin to joining them for a dinner party. I attended their Asian Passion cooking class and joined the other 12 guests for a front row seat as we sat comfortably around their kitchen bench.

Nico talked us through and demonstrated the preparation of 4 delicious Asian inspired dishes; Vietnamese Rice Paper Rolls, Thai Green Chicken Curry, Paad Thai and then finished off the menu with Fresh Berry & Lime Butter Stack.

It was so relaxing watching and smelling the aromatic dishes being prepared over a glass of wine (note: BYO drinks) and then indulging in each course. We learnt the skillful steps to create restaurant quality Asian dishes and then enjoyed eating them as Nico moved on to prepare the next delicious dish.

Class recipe notes were provided, but Nico shared additional informative tips as he demonstrated the preparation of each dish. I counted over 30 invaluable tips that I wrote along the way from what to look for when buying rice, to which ingredients can be bought frozen for convenience and economical purchasing. Nico instructed us on what could be prepared ahead of time to make our entertaining easy and stress free and still produce sensational food.

We learned about individual key Asian ingredients such as the different types of ginger and which palm sugar to buy and also learned about creating wonderful Asian flavour combinations. I have learned some tips for making rice over the years but Nico gave us a surprising method and helpful tips, to make exquisite foolproof fluffy rice.
