|Lyn Withers runs the successful cookery school Cooking with Company in Wauchope, near Port Macquarie on Australia’s Northern Central East Coast.
I recently spent my third weekend there cooking (and sharing my very self) with 22 eager cookery aficionados.
Our Asian Banquet was quite a treat, with the menu as follows:
The Asian Banquet Table
Fragrant, Tomato-laced Hot & Sour Masoor Dal Soup (Rasam)
South Indian Lemon Rice with Cashews & Fresh Coconut
Cream-infused Panir, Fresh Chili and Dried Fruit-filled Croquettes (Malai Kofta)
Gujarati Fenugreek-scented Pumpkin Curry
With Flame-toasted Pappadams
Herbed Fresh Tomato and Yogurt Salad (Raita)
Fresh Crisp and Puffed Fried Wheat Breads (Poories)
Indonesian Fruit Skewers With Peanut, Lime & Chili Dipping Sauce (Rujak Manis)
A very pleasant culinary exercise! The pumpking curry was my best ever, steaming hot from the wok.
Soft, crispy poories wrapped around saucy morsels of tender, sweet fenugreek-scented, chili- and lime-drenched pumpkin nuggets. A divine experience!
