During this action-packed three-hour cooking class you will learn everything from how to make curry pastes, to how to make your own Asian inspired sauces from scratch. Working together in small teams we will create three dishes from the sample menu below. 

The delicious menu is subject to the availability of ingredients but you will learn how to make your own curry paste and sweet chilli sauce from scratch and create a delectable Asian feast!

Classes are interactive and hands-on. Our interactive cookery courses are designed for those with a passion for cooking but are perhaps lacking the necessary skills or confidence to absolutely shine! You should not be spending hours slaving away in the kitchen, cooking can be fun, creative, fulfilling and rewarding.

You also get to enjoy a feast of all the delicious food we prepare, so your lesson will be a delicious culinary adventure!

What's on the menu (available gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian and vegan):

Please note: The menu is based on available seasonal produce and is subject to change at the experience provider's discretion. You will not have your own workstation but will work in small groups with some of the lessons being demonstrated and some of the lessons being hands-on. Please advise us of any dietary requirements in advance! The class is held in a fully licensed venue so you are unable to BYO.

Tong is not only an absolute gun in the kitchen, he is also the most entertaining instructor. Tong gave us so many tips on how/where to purchase the freshest ingredients. One of my favourite dishes was the Beef Thai Salad as well as the Chiang Mai Curry. Honestly, I will never buy curry paste from the store again!

Tong was a lovely teacher, very funny and generous with his knowledge. We cooked so much food we had leftovers! It was all delicious and we are excited to cook it again at home.

Was a very good experience. we had so much fun, he had sense of humour which was very pleasing in this world that has lost a sense of humour. He was a little hard to understand but that was of his strong accent and my lack of hearing lol, all in all 100%.

Tong was an amazing teacher, very knowledgeable and obviously has a love for his food. The staff were great in keeping the place clean and running all through the class. Venue was perfect with great range of materials. I did like that Tong was able to tell us substitutes for certain products and where to get them from cheaper. However I would have liked to have more hands-on with the desert course.

This was my third class with Tong and I have to say he just blew it out of the park yet again. The class is fun, interactive, the food is delicious and definitely easy to replicate at home. Highly recommend this class, and to be honest, any Vanilla zulu class

Tong was an amazing teacher. He was funny, engaging and made the whole experience worthwhile. I would totally recommend Tong as a teacher!

The venue is a great space. Materials were easy to find throughout the class and very professional.

The class was very good value for the money paid. The staff are extremely professional and approachable, making the experience even better!

I will definitely be recommending Vanilla Zulu and my class in particular (Asian Street Food with Tong) to everyone!
