Can’t cook, won’t cook? Looking to expand your already impressive repertoire of culinary successes?

Creating great food is within reach with Maureen at your side!  The Stableblock provides an inspiring and friendly setting in which to learn and experiment in a small group. After a detailed demonstration of the dishes Maureen expects you to get hands on in the kitchen and have a go for yourself. And of course tuck into your food at the end!


Half-day cookery class & farm tour

Try your hand at three flavours of Vietnam: Cha Gio, Pho Bo and Goi Ga. We will be using farm-reared pork in this involved, inspiring and hands-on class, and there will be an opportunity in the afternoon to see how we rear our pigs and pick Farmer Fred’s brains on all things farming.

Cha Gio – crispy spring rolls in rice paper served with lettuce, mint and dipping sauce
Pho Bo – Classic beef and rice noodle soup from Hanoi
Goi Ga – Roasted Tamworth pork and Pomelo salad with nuoc cham dressing

about Maureen...

Renowned restaurateur and author of the definitive Nonya cookbook, Red Heat Maureen Suan Neo had a number of highly acclaimed South East Asian restaurants in the City. Her five successful eateries received notable reviews from Fay Maschler, Charles Campion and Loyd Grossman amongst others over the last three decades. She has cooked for and catered at receptions attended by the President of Mauritius, Baroness Thatcher and more recently Boris Johnson.

For the past three years Maureen has been working on a new project, Nonya Secrets. Inspired by the popularity of Nonya cuisine and the demand for her food, she is now bottling her wonderful and delicious cooking and curry sauces. Lovers of South East Asian curries can use her sauces to replicate authentic and restaurant quality meals by simply adding her sauce to their own choice of protein.

Her sauces are now stocked at Harrods and in the May issue of Harrods Magazine, Nonya Secrets features as one of their top 10 recommendations.
