cooking studio

With a long standing track record in Asian cuisine, through our culinary education team, Coriander Leaf is aiming to act in a thought leadership capacity and be at the forefront of innovative culinary experiences and learning. Whether it is conventional cooking classes, developing new and innovative courses, expanding to the online cooking community, or delivering a distinct variety of unique and memorable cooking experiences, Coriander Leaf has always pushed the boundaries and created a reputation for culinary excellence.

At our core is Asian cuisine, yet this is the tip of the iceberg in terms of the depth and breadth of culinary courses we aim to provide.

We design menus that provide our guests with a strong grounding. In this way, our guests learn specific dishes as well as the insights and techniques necessary to become an insider in the cuisines of Asia! We emphasize home cooking and stick mainly to dishes that one can replicate at home. Our cooking studios are equipped with home cooking appliances reinforcing our commitment to teaching our guests something they will incorporate into their standard repertoire. Each class presents an integrated menu that can be prepared at home rather than a random selection of dishes.

Flavours of Vietnam Demo Class

'In food, as in death, we feel the essential brotherhood of man'
- Vietnamese Proverb

 

Despite being deeply rooted in the cooking of China and influenced by neighboring Thailand, Vietnamese cuisine remains distinctive and unique. The extensive use of fish sauce, fresh herbs and the style of eating small pieces of food wrapped in lettuce leaves or rice paper dipped in sauce gives the cuisine its distinctive character. Flavours and textures are very layered, along with the dipping sauces, yet each ingredient remains separate - when eaten together the flavours are transformed into a spicy, aromatic and tangy mouthful all at the same time.
