Families eating their meals together has been a common tradition across Asia. However, in recent times, this practice is dwindling because of longer working hours and conflicting schedules, especially during weekdays. Due to this, a rising number of youngsters are resorting to quick fixes and junk food, which might affect their nutritional intake.
The studio’s training content is customised to fit the various target groups of consumers including young families with children below the age of 11, newlyweds, new mothers and any aspiring young chef who doesn’t have much experience in the kitchen or isn’t too sure about nutritional factors.
A typical lesson consists of a two-hour class in which an Ajinomoto Cooking Studio chef demonstrates a couple of dishes followed by the chef assisting the trainees as they attempt to cook them. With a slightly competitive element added to spice things up, a winning team with the tastiest dishes will win some prizes.
Vietnamese cuisine isn’t the only focus here. Participants will also get to learn other Asian and European cuisines from Ajinomoto Vietnam’s experts. Other than learning how to cook, participants will also be nourished with information such as the history and culture behind the dishes and special tips on how to improve their cooking skills or arrange their nutrition-balanced meals
Classes are held every week from Tuesdays to Sundays with some available slots for you to choose from.
