Monday Spring & Summer classes 2019

After a long winter the weather warms and we crave freshness and liveliness in our food. It's time to embrace the bounty of the spring and summer seasons in our cooking, and that's our quest in these Monday Masterclasses.  We're cooking colourful tapas, festive Mexican, summer Thai, spring Italian, Provincial French, fresh and healthy Vietnamese. 

And then there is Christmas! How about mastering a Xmas seafood paella, christmas duck, and our tasteful take on turducken with some elegant turducken rolls. We've got baking classes too. Learn how to make savoury and dessert roulades (a great option for Christmas lunch!), and master DIY chocolate truffles.

The classes are Mondays 6.30-8.30 pm in the Foodish Cooking School at the Belconnen Fresh Food Markets.

$99 per class. This includes antipasto on arrival, wine and dinner (for savoury classes). Click on the link to see the classes.

Thai salads are packed with fresh herbs and complex flavours, so they are perfect spring fare. They make the tastebuds zing on a warm day.

In this class chef Pantip will teach you how to combine Thai flavours to achieve the exciting flavour harmony that is Thai cuisine.

Learn to make fresh Thai rice paper rolls with a special dipping sauce. Learn also to create two of the best salads that the region has to offer—a Thai beef salad and a fresh chicken larb with ground rice, both with their own special dressings.

Want to push aside those pre-made salsas and spice mixes and embrace the authentic flavours of Mexican cooking?

In this class you'll make Mexican from scratch--colourful fresh salsas and authentic burritos using spice combinations prepared in the class and your own fresh tortillas.

Sip on a margarita, devour a decadent churros or two for dessert, and begin your Mexican cooking adventures!

Let's bring the tastes of Spain into our foodish repertoire. Jamon, manchego, tortilla, chorizo--the produce of Spain lays the foundation for endless combinations of rich tapas flavours.

In this class we will be playing around with this produce to make a selection of tapas perfect for summer entertaining. We'll taste test the results with a glass of sangria (or two!).

Seasonality is a priority in Italian cooking, and in this class we transform beautiful spring produce into iconic Italian fare--asparagus, pecorino and lemon risotto, fresh colourful egg linguine with a gorgeous basil pesto, and a simple salsa crudo.

Bueno, especially with a spritz!
