Rivers of Flavour – Korea, China, Japan, Thailand, Vietnam

Presented by Paul Niddrie
About the class

China, Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, Korea. All distinct countries in their own right, but masters of harmonizing and layering rivers of flavour. In this class, we want to draw inspiration from all of these incredible cuisines. We’ll create over the top dishes that tantalize your palate and switch on your senses. Come join us in a food experience that says “To Asia, With Love”.

We’ll teach you how to reach into your pantry and pull off a fantastic meal by using powerhouse ingredients like Black Bean Paste, Miso, Fish Sauce, Black Garlic, Gochujang and more. You’ll then learn a multitude of techniques including making the perfect crackling and roast pork (worth it’s weight in culinary gold!).

Your Menu includes…

  • Kimchi Duck Soup with Tofu and EggRich Korean duck broth with Tongbaechu kimchi, gochujang, tofu, black bean marinated egg
  • “Crying Tiger” Wagyu Tataki  – Wagyu sirloin glazed with miso, served raw with spicy salad
  • Pork Belly Rice Paper Rolls with Black Garlic Cucumber, Duck Liver Parfait and Peanut Fish Sauce Praline  – Learn how to achieve perfect crackling and succulent roast pork, then layer it into the best rice paper roll you’ll ever wrap your lips around. 
  • Yuzu Gin Highballs with Rosemary – Taking the classic Japanese Highball and adding an herbaceous, floral twist
