Multicultural Kai Class & Korero - Indonesian Cuisine with Mini and Feni

Join our first "Multicultural Kai Class & Korero" of the year on Saturday, 3 September from 12.30 to 3.30 pm at the Food Factory (behind Pics Peanut Butter) with Mini and Feni who will teach us Indonesian cuisine.
This is to get our foodies in Nelson Tasman excited about learning some new ethnic dishes - and having a chat about the culture behind the chef at the same time.
Space is limited, the event is interactive and you will get to learn to cook the dishes as well as eat them, and no doubt enjoy some excellent conversations on the day.
The price is $30 per person which covers absolutely everything, and the class runs from 12.30 pm to 3.30 pm (apx).
Get back to us if you wish to join our Kai Class and Korero, email: admin@multiculturalnt.co.nz for registration.
