In this hands-on class, you will learn the art of making fresh Asian egg noodles from scratch with the goddess of flavour and Asian cuisine, Wanitha Tanasingham. You will then create a full menu of sauces and accompaniments to go with your noodles that include a steaming flavoursome chicken broth that we get brewing hours before your arrival, which you will then learn to make yourself and have you never wanting to buy pre-made chicken stock ever again!

About the Chef

Growing up in Penang, Wanitha moved to Australia in 1982. She learned the art of cooking from her father, who he was the Head Chef of the Kedah Royal Family in Malaysia. Wanitha later started her own restaurant and cooking school.
