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. Spring onion Pancakes: These pancakes are made from a simple dough that's rolled out thinly, then generously filled with chopped spring onions and seasoned with salt, sichuan and fat to create the most delicious side dish! You will be making: • Crispy Chilli Beef • Smashed Cucumber Salad • Fried Rice • Spring Onion Pancakes Techniques learnt • Knife Skills • Authentic Chinese flavours • How to balance flavours • How to cook and reheat rice • How to make flakey spring onion pancakes Everything that you prepare will be either eaten after class or will be taken home. We are actively trying to cut back on single use containers as much as we can! Please help us by bringing takeaway containers for leftovers/ any food you wish to take home with you.
