Noodle lovers, take notice! Guest chef Uyen Luu, author of “Vietnamese Vegetarian,” is back for a class that is all about the art of the noodle. We will start by making our own banh canh noodles, which are a Vietnamese cousin to Japanese udon noodles. Pleasantly chewy, these noodles are shockingly easy to make entirely from scratch. All you need is some tapioca starch, a bit of rice flour, a rolling pin and the encouraging support of an expert like Uyen. With a bundle of homemade noodles on hand, you need ideas on what to do with them, and Uyen has no shortage. You’ll learn to make a noodle soup from Uyen’s mom’s hometown that combines your toothsome noodles with fried shallot oil, lots of fresh lime and an abundance of fresh greens. Or, you can go in a more indulgent direction, making a batch of pan-fried banh canh noodles tossed in oyster sauce and topped with nearly any quickly sautéed veggies you like; Uyen opts for traditional purple spouting broccoli, garlic, bean sprouts and sliced chilies. Join us and be pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to bring the flavors of Vietnam to your kitchen.

About Uyen: Uyen Luu is a food photographer and food stylist by day, and her work has been widely covered by mainstream press. She has been running a Vietnamese supper club since 2009, and also runs cooking classes. Uyen grew up in Hackney, London since her family moved there in the ’80s as refugees.
