Earlier in the week I had the pleasure of attending a cooking demo class with Anthony Ricco, the Executive Chef of Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s famed New York restaurant Spice Market who presented Southeast Asian flavors dishes with Montgomery Lau, Chef de Cuisine at MARKET by Jean-Georges in Vancouver.
These two dynamic chefs created an exciting menu based on Spice Market’s Southeast Asian street food inspired menu while using West Coast produce.
A flavourful Amuse Buche wet our palate so to speak which was followed by four wonderful dishes:
Yellowfin Tuna, Lemon Szechuan Vinaigrette
Roasted Salmon, Green Curry Broth, Thai Eggplant
Grilled Striploin, Garlic, Coriander and Sesame
Chef Anthony Ricco was in the city for this wonderful cooking demo dinner presentation as well as to help launch a special Southeasst Asian Street Food menu at Market in the Shangri-La Hotel that runs in their restaurant through to April 18.
Thai Jewels, Tropical Fruits and Shaved Coconut Ice
The dishes presented were interpretations of Chef Anthony Ricco based on the recipes from Jean-Georges’ most recent book, Asian Flavors of Jean-Georges.
You can find Asian Flavors of Jean-Georges at Books for Cooks Bookshop located at 1740 West 2nd Avenue (just East of Burrard) in Vancouver.
