  1. Hi Dianne — So sorry you can’t join us but yes, there is certainly a possibility for a future workshop(s) — Penang would be a fabulous location — if we’re able to fill the minimum number of places for this workshop. So, please refer any friends or colleagues who might be interested to this site!
    I don’t have a newsletter yet (it’s on the agenda) so probably the best way at the moment to be alerted of other workshops is to follow me on Twitter or Like the EatingAsia FB page.
    Thanks again!

  3. Hi. I would love to be added to your mailing list to be advised of any future workshops of a similar nature. Sounds like it could be great fun.


  4. This is such a great workshop. I just read your post about the experience and it sounds wonderful. When will the next one be?


    • Hi Paula — We’re planning one for southeast Asia in early June 2016 and hope to announce it in a few weeks.
      We are also hoping for another one in Turkey, next fall. More to come on that.
      I’ve added your name to the mailing list for future workshops — hope that’s OK. If not let me know and I’ll
      remove it.
      Thanks for looking,
