If you’re quick to whip up stir fried noodles, enjoy wrapping delicate dim sums, and pickling zingy veggies into kimchi — then, a career in Asian cuisine is for you and cooking classes can help you get there!

With its distinct and unmatchable flavours, oriental food is one of the most diverse in the world. While the Japanese are known to create well-balanced, mild dishes, Malaysian and Thai cuisine is vibrant, colourful and packed with heat.

Even through you may know your way around a home kitchen, culinary classes allow you to train in professionally-designed setups and ensure an immersive learning experience.

The right culinary programme will take you through the fundamentals of Pan Asian cuisine before moving onto advanced techniques. One such programme is the 18-month Diploma in Culinary Arts At-Sunrice GlobalChef Academy.

What’s Cooking in the Classroom?

   You can master the skill of using common Asian knives, such as different types of Chinese cleavers, and the Japanese-style santokus and gyutous. Learn the art of slicing and dicing ingredients. Julienne vegetables into thin, uniform strips or dice them into neat cubes. 

   Understand the proper use and function of a cast iron wok, a ladle, and other essential utensils found in oriental kitchens. 

   Blend authentic herbs and spices, emulsify sauces and stocks. Familiarise yourself with Asian ingredients like lemongrass, Thai basil, galangal, yuzu lemon, star anise, mirin and more. 

   Cook food with dry heat methods such as grilling, broiling, baking, and roasting among others. Also explore moist-heat techniques like poaching, simmering, boiling, braising, and steaming. 

   Practice the art of plating and food placement to create aesthetically pleasing, well-balanced dishes. 

   Discover sustainable ways of cooking with plant-based or vegan cuisine. 

   Gain invaluable networking opportunities through workshops, activities and career fairs. 

   Learn to source the best natural produce and bring out its authentic flavour in each dish. 

   Develop a budget, supervise food production and manage a kitchen.
