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 $110 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.

Vietnamese cuisine is all about vibrant flavours and freshness. It is considered to be one of the healthiest cuisines in the world with its emphasis on fresh produce and an abundance of herbs.

Learn how to combine Vietnamese ingredients and flavours to create iconic summer dishes--Vietnamese rice paper rolls with nuoc cham dressing, beef noodle salad, and Saigon crepes.

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!
