Authentic Thai Cuisine
Thai food is an exceptional combination of exotic sweet, tangy and peppery spices, fresh ingredients, and stunning presentation, and most who try it are hooked for life. Traditional Thai cooking is taught at home. Every mother is a “teacher” and family recipes are passed down from one generation to the next. Meals are always shared family affairs and are an important part of Thai cultural heritage. Therefore, our Thai cooking classes are set in home-style learning environments, with open-air, Thai-style kitchens, surrounded by aromatic herb gardens, orchards and rice paddies. Our instructors will pass down their family recipes, as they teach us about ingredient selection, combining spices into curry pastes, and preparation of full meals of Thai cuisine. And of course, at the end of our cooking class, we will enjoy the incredible feast we have prepared.
Our Thailand cooking trip includes daily breakfast, seven lunches, and 2 dinners. Two of the included lunches and one dinner will be meals that you learn to prepare yourself during the cooking classes. Our additional included meals allow you to enjoy the finest Thai food in remarkable settings.
Here are some dishes that you might cook during your Thai cooking classes:
* Phad Thai – Thai fried noodles
A stir-fry comprising rice noodles, tofu, bean sprouts, egg and prawns. This taste sensation uses the combination of sweet, sour and salty flavors to enhance the superbly contrasting textures.
* Tom Kha Gai – Chicken soup in coconut milk
