About This Class
Most of us love Chinese food, but most of us are only really familiar with Chinese takeaway (don’t get me wrong we do love a chow mein!) This hands-on class will teach you all you need to know to rustle up some of the tastiest Authentic and most loved Chinese dishes. You will be working with delicious, fresh ingredients to make some of the most love dishes in Chinese cuisine, introducing you to new combinations of flavours and the perfect look, textures, and tastes. Crispy Shredded Beef : Whilst this may not be 100% Authentic Chinese, it is a crowd pleaser (and my go to order!) Thin strips of marinated beef, deep fried until crispy and tossed in a rich tangy sauce. This will be an element of your lunch. Smashed cucumber with garlic and sesame: In China, cucumbers are considered the ideal side for hot weather and hot food. In Beijing people buy hole cucumbers just too munch on the go! This salad is the perfect dish to accompany anything spicy. Fried Rice: Rice is a staple in Chinese cuisine. And fried rice is normally served as a complete meal to feed the family. We will make a veggie version for this class, but it can very easily be adapted. Sichuan chilli oil: This spicy and aromatic chill oil, infused with Sichuan Peppercorns, bay leaf, cinnamon, and star anise is a lovely fragrant condiment to add to any meal. Drizzle it on stir fired rice or noodles or mix into a broth for a spicy, fragrant kick. I’m not afraid to say that I am slightly obsessed with this oil! Pork Wontons: Simple and delicious. Pork wontons are little parcels of juicy, mouth-watering goodness. Packed full of flavour, these are perfect just on their own, smothered in chilli oil or submerged in a delicious broth. You will be making: • Crispy Chilli Beef • Smashed Cucumber Salad • Fried Rice • Sichuan Chilli Oil • Pork Wontons Techniques learnt • Knife Skills • Authentic Chinese flavours • How to balance flavours • How to cook and reheat rice • How to shape wontons Everything that you prepare will be either eaten for lunch or will be taken home.
