Saturday 23 Sep 2017 - Saturday 16 Mar 2019

Even with the benefit of kitchen gadgetry, Nonya Sauces take painstaking and lengthy preparation. There are a vast number of herbs; rhizomes such as galangal, turmeric, ginger together with onions, garlic, chillies, lemon grass. They’re all carefully measured, sliced and ground to a fine texture to produce the sambals and smooth curry pastes, which are then cooked so that the onions caramelise and the ingredients come together in a melange of hot and sweet, spicy and smooth.
