A Longrain Farewell- final date listed

Presented by The Cooking School at the Essential Ingredient Surry Hills
About the class

Surry Hills’s much-loved institution of modern Thai cooking, Longrain, are closing their doors after almost 20 years of serving sophisticated urban chic plates of goodness and cocktails to die for.

The Essential Ingredient has invited Longrain’s Executive Chef Griff Pamment into our Cooking School the week after they close their doors so he can share his success and secrets in this intimate hands-on class. In this class, Griff will be teaching you how to create some of Longrain’s Signature dishes so you can recreate for years to come.

There will be ample time and opportunity for you to ask Griff questions about his culinary journey and time at Longrain. The class will end by sitting down to enjoy this stunning feast with a classic Longrain cocktail

Tickets will sell fast for this event, please book early to avoid disappointment

The Menu

Filled Eggnet with pork, prawns, peanuts, cucumber relish

A Longrain signature dish, everyone will miss it when Longrain closes. Only a few wise students will be able to replicate it at home. This is a complicated dish layering many flavours and different dressings including the technique for making an eggnet.

Sour Orange Curry with fish, clams, mussels, green papaya, Chinese white cabbage

A very simple curry soup that is an easy one to make in a home kitchen. An introduction to making curry paste from scratch. A great way to hone your skill balancing hot, sweet, salty and sour flavours.

Longrain Banana Fritter with coconut sorbet, tamarind caramel and cocoa crumb

Ping Pong  A refreshing delicious classic Longrain cocktail made with lychees, passionfruit, lime, vodka and Lychee liquor
