BangPop Virtual Cooking Classes
Time Out says
This local Thai restaurant is taking its regular cooking classes online
If your self-isolation diet has been less than impressive (no judgement here – I made nachos with Savoys the other day) then we are here to help. And so is Melbourne Thai restaurant BangPop.
The South Wharf venue is running online Thai cooking classes to help feed and entertain you during the shutdowns. BangPop is no stranger to cooking classes, having previously run them IRL out of the restaurant. They’ve adapted these classes for online, using Zoom to remotely teach budding chefs how to cook classic Thai dishes.
Here’s how it works. Once you’ve signed up to the class, BangPop will deliver the ingredients to your house on the morning of the class. Then at 11am you’ll be invited to join a Zoom meeting via your smartphone, tablet or laptop where you’ll be guided through the dishes by BangPop’s head chef.
The upcoming classes will teach you to make dishes like Pad Krapow Nua (spicy stir-fried beef with holy basil and egg), Tod Man Khoa Pod (Thai-style corn fritters with sweet chilli sauce) and Moo Pin (pork skewers with coconut and peanut sauce). Different dishes are taught in each class so take a look on what's being offered before booking.
All you’ll need to supply is a wok (or large pan), some sharp knives and a chopping board, plus an internet connection for the Zoom meeting. BangPop currently has three Thai cooking classes available, all happening at various times on Saturday, May 9. Visit the website to book and to find out more.
