Master class with World Foods at School of Wok and giveaway

I was recently invited to a master class by world foods at the School of Wok to create some dishes using their sauces.

The WORLDFOODS' Cooking Solutions range are a concentrate of flavours and are extremely versatile in any Asian inspired cooking. They are 100% natural and are created using authentic herbs and spices. All the sauces are free from artificial preservatives, colouring, flavouring, gluten or genetically modified ingredients and are totally suitable for vegetarians, vegans and coeliacs.

The product range is vast and includes:
  • Thai Green Curry Paste
  • Thai Red Curry Paste
  • Thai Yellow Curry Paste
  • Thai Basil Curry Paste
  • Thai Masaman Curry Paste
  • Thai Panang Curry Paste
  • Thai Tom Yum Paste
  • Indonesian Fried Rice Paste
  • Indonesian Sambal Oelek
  • Malaysian Rendang Curry Paste
  • Singaporean Nyonya Laksa Paste
  • North African Harissa Paste
  • Thai Chilli Paste
  • Thai Tamarind Paste
  • Northern Thai Spicy Curry Paste(Hung Le curry)
  • Lemon Grass Paste
  • Ginger Paste
  • Garlic Paste
  • Galangal Paste
The sauces are very convenient to use, the flavours are well balanced and all that’s required to create tasty and delicious meals is to add some vegetables, meat or rice.

At the master class we were given a demonstration in how to chop vegetables using a proper Chinese cleaver by Jeremy the chef. We all chopped our vegetables to perfection (or almost) and then headed to the kitchen to prepare our vegetarian feast of  Rendang tacos,  Thai Basil  stir fry, Masaman  baked squash with coconut. The non-vegetarians cooked Panang curry duck breast, Thai basil stir fry, Masaman roast poussin . Jeremy demonstrated the perfect cooking techniques after which we created our dishes ready for dinner.
Dinner was washed down with lovely wine for the drinkers and soft drinks for the teetotallers.

 Finally when we thought we could eat no more we were tempted to sample the amazing Lemon grass drizzle cake which was amazing.The whole experience at school of wok was fun, interactive and the meal was superb. I was really surprised how bottled sauces could taste so authentic and homemade. I would like to thank world foods for inviting me to the cookery master class with the amazing Jeremy and sending me home with a wonderful goody bag of sauces so that I could recreate the meal in my own home.

As always I like my readers to be able to sample all the products that I try out, I am pleased to say that World foods have been really kind and have agreed to send two lucky simplyfood readers a world foods hamper each which will consist of:
