Cam On Vietnam
What stayed most with Julz and Ollie about their Vietnam travels are the fresh, punchy flavours and interesting textures – from clear, hearty broths to the crispy pork rice paper snacks found at street food stalls. To set the mood for the evening, a couple of ice cold herb infused cocktails will be served alongside tasters of signature Vietnamese fare, like bite-sized bahn mi (Asia’s delicious answer to the Dagwood), before launching into the demos. Look forward to bright, flavourful noodly broths including beef pho, seafood dishes like squid with spicy green papaya salad and a dessert singing with flavours of lotus seeds.
Spice of Sri Lanka
It’s all about the fragrant, spicy curries Ollie and Julz fell in love with during their travels to Sri Lanka. Kicking things off will be cooling cocktails starring one of Sri Lanka’s most legendary exports, black tea, shaken up with cucumber and cardamom, and canapés like vade (think spicy lentil falafels) with green coconut salsa. The demonstrations will centre around creating the multi-layered flavours of the curries the country’s known for and the local ingredients they like to incorporate, such as Jackfruit and pineapple. Oh, and save space for the Ceylon-tea ice cream and cashew cinnamon crumb for dessert!
