In the relaxed setting of my private dining area at Noya's Kitchen, classes are small and friendly, with groups of up to 6 people, giving you lots of one to one attention and entirely hands on cooking! I will show you how to use an array of specialist Asian ingredients, including exotic fresh herbs and spices to prepare the delicate, subtle balance of flavours: salty, sweet and sour that characterises Vietnamese cooking. So be prepared to roll up your sleeves and have fun cooking this wonderful aromatic cuisine. At the end of the class... sit, relax and enjoy your creations. Your take homes are my recipes, your new skills and your delicious food... if there's any left over!
My join a group classes are £65pp and run from 6-9pm at 7 St James's Parade, Bath BA2 4QZ. Please choose from the menus and dates below and use the booking form to request your place. I'll be releasing more dates for August and beyond very soon!
CHICKEN PHO & more
In this lesson, you'll be making the classic Vietnamese aromatic noodle soup, chicken pho. We'll make the broth from scratch, learning to balance the flavours to suit your taste. While the pho broth is infusing, you'll be preparing and marinating your spring roll filling, before learning to fill, fold and roll the perfect spring roll. The tasty crunch of Vietnamese spring rolls are incredibly more-ish, especially when dipped in your own freshly made dipping sauce. Then a favourite at my supper club.. a lovely warm ginger chicken stew, using fresh green pepper corns that bring a wonderful sweet, spicy and smoky balance to the dish.

FRAGRANT CHICKEN CURRY & more
Vietnamese curries are a hidden gem! They aren't as famous as their Thai or Indian counterparts but after cooking this fragrant Chicken curry with sweet potatoes, you'll be making it again and again. Jasmine rice best accompanies this curry so you'll learn the secret to perfect rice making. While the curry is gently cooking, you'll marinate the beef with lemongrass skewers, and make the perfect summer rolls. You will also learn to make the classic Vietnamese dipping sauce, learning to balance the flavours to suit your taste.

SOUTH EAST ASIAN STREET FOOD
This menu is a great introduction to some of my favourite South East Asian street food. In my May & July 2018 class you'll learn to make your own Thai Red Curry paste and I'll teach you how to create this wonderfully aromatic & spicy dish. Vietnamese crispy rice pancakes are a classic dish in the south of Vietnam, often eaten for lunch, filled with prawn or marinated pork, served with fresh herbs and spicy dipping sauce. Ginger and chilli aubergine stir fry is a wonderfully fresh & zingy dish that can be served as a main or a lovely side dish.
MENU NOTE: I will be introducing a variety of delicious dumplings to this class in place of the Thai Red Curry from 20th August onwards. You'll learn how to fold the different shapes and ways to cook them, frying and steaming - it's a lot of fun!
