Authentic Curry Kitchen - Open

Bring a taste of India to your kitchen...

Indian food, especially curry, is as diverse as its culture, geography and climate.  It is vibrant, colourful, enticing, easy to prepare and wonderfully satisfying.  The essence of good Indian cooking revolves around the appropriate use of aromatic spices.  Spicing is not a difficult concept.  In the same way that salt and pepper are used in the west, the skill lies in using spices to enhance rathere than overwhelm the intrinsic flavour of a particular dish.

Join our head chef Dean on this evening of demonstration and practical to recreate an array of authentic flavour combinations that will inspire you to cook regional Indian recipes in the future for both family and friends.

Sample menu:

  • Onion bhajais with coriander and mint chutney
  • Caril de galinha (Goan chicken curry) Goa, West India
  • Sag aloo
  • Pilau rice

Thai Kitchen - Open

Thai @ foodworks

Thai cooking is at odds with the modern world.

Thai is not an instant cuisine, prepared with a flick of a pan and finished with a toss of a pan.  It needs attention, it expects time and effort to be spent  and it requires honed skills, but it rewards with sensational tastes.

Thai cooking has three levels, firstly the taste of the ingredients used; secondly, the texture of those ingredients; and finally the seasoning.

Join us at the Foodworks to start your culinary Thai adventure and enjoy a complimentary glass of wine with your food.

Example menu

  • Thai sui-mei (Thai steamed dumplings)
  • Satay Lue (Chicken satay)
  • Sweet soy sauce
  • Chilli dipping sauce
  • Southern Mussaman Beef Curry
