Chez Fong Cooking Class and Demonstration

Su-Yen Thornhill’s weekly 10-course Asian dinner series Chez Fong always sells out, as much due to the flavours on the plate as to the host's incomparable exuberance. With her origins a heady whirl of Scottish-South African and Chinese descent, Su-Yen heroes authentic pan-Asian fusion cuisine, with an emphasis on homemade components and seasonal ingredients. Another opportunity to indulge in Thornhill's lively food theatre is by joining her interactive demonstration-style classes.

For dinner or a demonstration, the first treat comes when you pull up to her family home, a turn-of-the-century stone mansion tucked into a quiet Upper Houghton ridge. When you make your way to the sprawling back patio, you’ll be greeted by a panoramic view of the lush Parks suburbs below. 

Su-Yen plans several courses for all her events and you can make attending a Chez Fong demo or dinner a fun activity with a group of friends or come on your own to learn something new among similar-minded foodies, all are welcome. Su-Yen cooks with boundless energy and charisma, peppering her demonstrations and dinners with bawdy humour and culinary anecdotes as she goes along and no two menus are ever the same, making for one of Joburg's most memorable culinary experiences.
