Asian Cooking with Christmas

Most of us regularly enjoy Asian cuisine, including many traditional Japanese, Indonesian, Korean, Vietnamese and Chinese delights, but imagine if you could confidently make delicious fresh Asian dishes for your family and friends at home!

If you're keen to find out some tricks of the trade, visit Otao Kitchen Cooking School in Richmond! It's a must do for any foodies and will be an experience to remember!

A typical cooking class commences with a welcome drink, and an introduction to Thai, Japanese, Indonesian, Korean, Vietnamese or Chinese ingredients. You'll soon discover the 5-elements in flavours and have the opportunity to taste, prepare and cook three or four dishes, which you can enjoy with a glass of sparkling wine.

If you often find yourself walking down busy supermarket aisles, struggling to come up with new ideas for dinner, let alone Christmas lunch, the Christmas Cooking Classes will offer great inspiring ideas. Learn to prepare fresh, healthy and well-presented Asian dishes which perfectly complement other traditional Christmas lunch favourites.

For example, rice paper rolls are one of the most well known Vietnamese dishes. Today they are often served at social gatherings and can be easily customised to suit different diets and tastes. Whether it is steamed Thai salmon cake with tangy tamarin sauce or coconut rice and mango, rice paper rolls can be elevated beyond a run of the mill snack and become an exciting, trendy dinner experience for you and your guests.

Home cooks will have the opportunity to sample a vast array of recipes and ingredients, some of which they may have never heard of or tasted. Held in a fun and social class, participants will receive a comprehensive introduction to the basics of Asian cuisine.

There's also a popular Work Christmas Party option available which includes venue, food, wine, entertainment and chef. Held over 3 or 4 hours (either lunch or dinner), you and your group of 8 to 16 people will enjoy an interactive cooking experience held in fun atmosphere. If you want to host an end of the year party with a difference or fancy becoming a Asian Chef at home in just one afternoon or evening, give the Chef a call now on 0408 217 899 as spaces fill fast.

Book before 10 November to take advantage of a special discount: Groups of 10 or more pay $99pp instead of $135pp. Click here for details.

And if you are stuck for a Christmas gift - check out some of some of their unique experiences here. This will make a wonderful gift for the foodie in your life! There's a range of cuisines/experiences to choose from or opt for the fantastic Asian Essentials gift pack of 4 classes including Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese and Bali Indonesian cooking lessons!
