Lemongrass Asian Cooking Class Teens and Adults Classes

The first teen cooking class was so much fun! I hope they learned a lot and love the dish! We made Roasted Chili & Cashew Nut Noodle.
They dished the noodle themselves in a noodle box to take home and a kit to practice at home consisting of the sauces and dried noodle. Some couldn’t resist to eat the noodle straight away… haha.. so if parents would like to taste it, they must make it tonight😊
I taught them how to use chopsticks too😊

They had some krupuk and noodle on krupuk for snack and homemade iced tea and water.


The looks at their faces showed it all!
Cooking should be fun, educational and exploring new tastebuds!
We had couple of fussy eaters at the class today, proud moment was when they said “hhmmmm this is nice!” When they tried the Roasted Chili & Cashew Nut Noodle in the class. I can’t help but beaming 😊
They learn to work in a team as well personal responsibility.
