Cooking: Vegan Asian Flavours

View Classes

Learn to cook flavour-packed vegan Asian dishes at this cooking workshop in Sydney.

If you’ve made the choice to go vegan, or simply wanting to eat a more plant-based diet, South East Asian cuisine has much to offer: fresh herbs, veg and tofu feature prominently and dairy is rarely used. So we’re off to a great start, but how do you replace that salty punch of fish sauce? And what can you do to balance the textures and ensure there’s enough protein?

Join us for a tasty workshop to expand your repertoire and learn tips and techniques for creating delicious and totally vegan versions of some classic Asian dishes.

Whether you’re a beginner cook looking to gain some confidence in the kitchen or just looking for some inspiration, this hands on cooking class is perfect for you!
