Far Eastern Cookery

one day course from £198

Available from 5th Oct 2019

Southeast Asian cooking is a glorious assault on the senses and it seems so healthy. Vegetables are raw or hardly cooked, lots of seafood and fresh fish; meat used sparingly and rice simply steamed. This course demonstrates the combinations of hot, sour and salty and sweet, the occasional bitter notes and enthusiasm for colour and texture. Quite simply, it’s food of considerable sophistication, delivered in seconds.
