A Hunger for More: Day Two of our Essential Winter Cookery Course

Up bright and early for a new day at Cooks Academy, our week-long students arrived with a spring in their step.

A jam-packed day, today they were tackling everything from salmon to soufflés.

Chef Nicola was on-hand to help guide them through the cooking session, and with Chef Damien by her side, they headed to the Asian Market on Drury Street to gather ingredients for their Green Curry Paste (completely from scratch, I might add).

With a bunch of fragrant ingredients in their hands, soon the room filled with the fresh scent of lemongrass and spices.

The results? Well… Doesn’t the curry look great??

A Thai Green Curry in their bellies and a hunger for more, our Essential Winter students kicked off their afternoon cooking with a chocolate soufflé which they happily scoffed down (definitely the perfect dessert for chocoholics!)

To top things off for the day, Chef Nicola rustled up a white soda bread and the students put together a quick and easy salmon tray bake with rosemary, potatoes and tomatoes.

Phew – We’re guessing that our cooks will need a good night’s sleep tonight.
