Recipes on this course may include:

Sweet & Sour Pork

Sweet and sour pork is reminiscent of Cantonese cuisine, this is the one time where only tinned pineapple can bring back the nostalgia of good old traditional sweet and sour - all tossed together with crispy battered pork pieces, red capsicum, sweet onion, rice vinegar, oyster sauce, a splash of Chinese rice wine, a drizzle of sesame oil eaten with a bowl of steaming boiled rice.

Wok Smoked Beef in Black Bean Sauce

Tender strips of beef marinated in Chinese rice wine and light soya, tossed in a fiery wok with chopped black bean, garlic, ginger, spring onions and red chillies

Drunken Garlic Pak Choy

Fresh quartered pak choy stir fried with crispy garlic, oyster sauce, a touch of sugar, drowsed with rice wine

Golden Egg Fried Rice

Secret to a good fried rice - each grain of rice is bouncy and individually coated with the egg mixture. Finished with a drizzle of toasted sesame oil and a sprinkling of chopped spring onions
