South-East Asian Street Food

Duration: 1 Day

In this hands-on cooking class, Chef Tutor Norman Musa will guide you through a variety of street food recipes from Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand. You’ll learn about the rich cultural and food heritage of South East Asia.

Vietnamese Street Food combines herbs with spice infused stocks so everything tastes so fresh! Contrast that to the Hawkers of Bangkok who use chilli, galangal, basil, coconut and lime in their sauce. Malaysian street food incorporates China influences following the arrival of South Indian and Chinese migrant workers. Roti in Malaysia is not the same as roti in India or the Caribbean. On the streets of Jakarta, you’ll discover Portuguese and Dutch influences including fried rice, spicy omelette and gado-gado.

You’ll cover a variety of recipes throughout the day including:


  • Prawn Vietnamese Summer Rolls
  • Thai Fish Cakes
  • Maureens Burmese Beef Curry
  • Malaysian Nyonya Chicken Lime Curry
  • Burmese Lethoke (demo)
  • Pat Thai Prawn Wok fried Noodles 


The day begins at 9.30am and we invite you to join us with a welcome tea or coffee in the cookery school’s dining room from 9.00am, where you will have a chance to meet your fellow delegates and chef. Your chef will talk you through the class menu and how the day will run before you are assigned a workspace in our fully equipped kitchen, overlooking the beautiful estate at Braxted Park. 

The step-by-step tuition is fun and easy to follow and the cookery school team will be available to assist you throughout the day.

At the end of a full day of cooking, everyone’s efforts will be rewarded with a glass of wine and a sit-down meal that has been cooked during the day, where hints and tips can be shared with the group while enjoying the food that you have prepared. 

Please note that the dishes listed may vary due to the availability of fresh produce as a result of seasonal changes.

Please note Children over the age of 8 years old are welcome to attend and participate in any of our classes at the full cost of a place but MUST be accompanied by 1 paying adult.
