Faithful followers have been waiting patiently – and now she’s baaaack!

She has style, she has flair she’s got tips, tricks and flavour ‘truth’ bombs that will blow your mind. Wanitha Tanasingam is back in our house and we couldn’t be more thrilled.

Born in Penang Malaysia, Wanitha is now a consultant for Tourism Malaysia, has her own cooking company Wanitha inc which hosts small and large scale cooking classes from in house parties to team building events at the Opera House.

She’s based in Sydney and is making the journey North – DO NOT MISS OUT!

In this snappy 2 and a half hour workshop we will nail two traditional Vietnamese taste sensations and a few accompaniments. Vietnamese cooking is greatly admired for the use of fresh ingredients, a minimal use of diary and oil, along with the diverse and thoughtful use of textures with a strong reliance on herbs and vegetables. With its delicate balance between fresh herbs and meat, it is considered one of the healthiest cuisines. We start with a deliciously zesty pomelo and calamari salad – and you will be shown how to clean and prepare a whole calamari – but the salad shares the spotlight with  street food fave Com Tam, which is a pork chop with lemon grass. Com Tam – Street food Favourite Pork chop  with lemon grass. It will all be served with rice, salad and dipping sauce.

It’s intense flavours, lots to learn and even more to taste – all at the hands of a master!

If you don’t believe us – you can believe foodie icon Margaret Fulton

“ Wanitha’s food is as exciting as her personality. Her food is a reminder of how food should taste … warm, containing friendship, giving and joy. Her friendship and love of food brings a touch of fire. ”
