2½ hr class.  Look, Cook & Eat.

Join us for a new specialty series showcasing the journey of spices.  Once a month we will bring you new and exciting recipes from around the globe, starting with Vietnam.  Considered as one of the healthiest cuisines worldwide, Vietnamese cuisine brings together 5 fundamental philosophies that help create its unique flavour. Sweet, Sour, Salty, Bitter, Hot is created by balancing lemongrass, ginger, mint, chilli, garlic and more. Tonight your chef will match those elements with fresh NZ seafood to create light and healthy recipes bursting with flavour.  Tonight you will be cooking caramelised black-pepper fish with steamed rice and spring onion followed by Vietnamese Seafood Pho, tonight there will be a beer tasting and the menu will be matched with two great beers courtesy of BBC, Birkenhead Brewing Company.

$70 per class when you book for 2 or more classes in the spice series** OR  $80 for a standalone class.  (prices are per person)

Was a little nervous about the whole ‘cooking thing’ however the chef and the people I cooked with made things a breeze – plus heaps of fun.
