Celebrating Modern Asian food with Rebecca Ng, owner and founder of U, Ma & Me. Allow Rebecca to expand your knowledge of Asian flavours and ingredients, and get ready to learn many new cooking techniques. As Rebecca feels the best way to learn is by asking questions, you’ll certainly be getting involved. Everyone will have the chance to get hands on in Modern Asian.
The menu will include:
- Pan-fried pork and garlic chive dumplings with red vinegar and Szechuan pepper
- Roasted baby barramundi with spicy tomato and tamarind curry
- Char-grilled tiger prawns with watercress, mint, lemongrass and papaya
- Crispy Thai style banana fritters with palm sugar caramel
Growing up in Tasmania, Rebecca Ng formed an appreciation for fresh produce. While completing her apprenticeship, Bec was awarded a scholarship to work with Tetsuya Wakuda in his Sydney restaurant. This experience emphasised the importance of the quality and freshness of ingredients and taught her the discipline of precision.
Bec built on her skills in her work in Melbourne, particularly as sous chef at Longrain and head chef at Magic Mountain Saloon. Bec loves all types of food but has a special love for Asian, and particularly Thai, cuisine.
