What you'll do

Vietnamese food has grown rapidly in popularity over recent years due to its notable health benefits.

Less oily than Chinese, less spicy than Thai food, and not as heavy as Indian food, the cuisine has roots in broths, raw food, gluten-free and additive-free cooking. The distinct freshness and simplicity of Vietnamese cuisine makes you want to explore the region's delightful dishes deeper.

Covering well-known dishes from the region including Pho Bo, Vietnamese Summer Rolls and Beef Salad, you will learn to prepare and cook each dish from scratch at your own work station. You will follow your host's step-by-step instructions. At the end of the class, enjoy your own cooked three-course meal together with the other students. Alternatively, take your meal home with you to share with family and friends.

This experience includes:

  • A welcome drink and limitless refreshments during the class
  • All cooking equipment and ingredients

You will learn:

  • About Asian spices and how to combine them to make spice pastes
  • How to balance flavours
  • Knife skills

You will make:

  • Vietnamese Summer Rolls: learn how to make these fresh-tasting rice paper rolls packed with prawns, light vermicelli noodles, carrots, cucumber and herbs, with a sweet ginger chilli dipping sauce

  • Vietnamese Beef Salad: low-calorie, high protein and gluten-free, this Vietnamese steak salad makes an ideal midweek meal. Plus, it's really simple to make. Learn how to balance the flavours for a perfect dressing

  • Vietnamese Pho Bo: There's nothing like a heavenly bowl of Pho Bo! Your host has spent many happy times watching the world go by at the side of a Vietnamese street, tucking into this delightful bowl of aromatic goodness! Learn how to master this popular street food dish and the tricks to making a proper broth - it's critical to the overall success of the dish. We're licking our lips just imagining it!

Please note: This course is suitable for everyone from basic cooking skills upwards. This class is not suitable for vegans, vegetarians or people with nut and crustacean allergies
