Monday Summer & Autumn 2020

In this series we celebrate the bounty of the seasons and the flavours of the world in our summer and autumn cooking.

Summer is about getting together with family and friends to share delicious food in a relaxed and fun setting. In our summer classes we teach you exciting flavours and techniques from Spanish, French and Asian cooking to add to your summer repertoire. Dishes that you will crave to share with others!

Autumn in Canberra is glistening. The days are warm, the evenings more cool, and the produce is abundant. We finish the series with two classes that play with this beautiful end-of-summer produce in ways true to two regions in southern Europe, first, in French provincial cooking and, second, in Tuscan cooking.

This series is on Monday evenings, 6.30-9 pm. The classes take place at the Foodish Cooking School at the Belconnen Fresh Food Markets and are $109 each. 

Cook and eat wonderful food in these classes, sip on a glass or two of wine, and make new friends as you connect through cooking.

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, flour and corn tortilla,s and authentic burritos using spice combinations prepared in the class. Finish off with a decadent churros or two and we know that your Mexican cooking adventures are about to take off!

Thai salads are packed with fresh herbs and complex flavours. They make the tastebuds zing on a hot summer's day.

In this class we make the best that the region has to offer—Thai rice-paper rolls with sweet and salty dipping sauce, a Thai beef salad and a fresh chicken larb.

Learn how to combine the flavours to achieve the classic flavour harmonies so special to Thai cuisine.

Seasonality is a priority in Italian cooking, and in this class we transform beautiful late-summer produce into iconic Italian fare—artichoke, pecorino and lemon risotto, fresh and colourful egg linguine (yes, you will learn to make your own pasta!) with a gorgeous basil pesto, and a simple salsa crudo.

Fantastico, especially with a spritz!

In this class we celebrate casual Japanese dining. The simple and tasty food of the everyday.

We begin with the foundations of Japanese cooking--the simple yet mighty dashi stock, which you will use to make your own miso soup.

Learn the art of Japanese stir-fry in a delicious yakisoba. Gather around the burner to cook a communal okonomiyake (Japanese savoury pancake), and have this with all the toppings. Make a simple and healthy ramen soup.

Enjoy all this as a meal with a sake or two and take home lots of Japan-easy inspiration!
