Around the World with Liam: Vietnam

In the mood for fragrant food? We only have a few seats left for our popular Around the World with Liam class on Vietnam.

If you’ve ever travelled to this country you’ll have memories of hilly rice paddies, chaotic roads packed with entire families on motorbikes, and colourful produce markets where the smells of fresh food assault the senses…

And if you haven’t, Liam Tomlin’s demonstration will give you a taster, inspired by his interpretation of local dishes during his travels through Vietnam.

Six dishes will be prepared, plus wines suiting Vietnamese food.

“The food of Vietnam is very delicate, fresh and vibrant. It’s a cuisine based on simple dishes that are easy to reproduce,” explains Liam. “We plan to use everyday ingredients that are easily available.”

The menu is still being fine-tuned, but will likely include a duck soup of some description, something “not too spicy but with a delicate lemongrass, chilli and ginger flavour” and follow with exotic fishcakes.

Seafood could feature too. “We’ll do lovely squid tubes filled with minced pork, with subtle flavouring. If I can find good clams we’ll do a lovely dish of clams steamed in beer with chilli and lemongrass. It’s delicious.”

Dessert? A tasty coconut milk rice pudding with tropical fruits, partnering a coconut-and-lime ice cream. There’s a surprise twist in this recipe though.

Saturday 17th September, 10am – 2pm. R650pp. Book now.
