Vietnamese Street Food
Asian street food lovers, this is your opportunity to dive deep into the world of Vietnamese cooking. Join cookbook author and Vietnamese food expert Andrea Nguyen to create outstanding banh mi sandwiches, brew your own broth for beef and chicken pho noodle soups, and fry banh xeo sizzling rice crepes like a pro. You'll decipher regional differences in pho as well as tinker with rice batter, pickles, spreads and fillings. You'll also explore seasonings that shape the iconic foods of Vietnam. The class culminates with a pho and banh mi bar!
Andrea will guide you through recipes and techniques, and discuss key ingredients such as fish sauce (we'll taste different brands), herbs, and spices, including how to locally source them. She'll also share culinary history and regional differences from her acclaimed books, Into the Vietnamese Kitchen and The Banh Mi Handbook. Bring your copies or purchase them at the class for her to sign.
This is a 4.5-hour, hands-on class so be prepared to cook, tinker, and have fun. There will be lots of eating too. The recipes we'll make include:
- Beef Pho
- Chicken Pho
- Sriracha Aioli
- Daikon and Carrot Pickle
- Chinese Barbecued Pork (Char Siu)
- Sate Chicken
- Sizzling Rice Crepes (Banh Xeo)
