"Thai food ain’t about simplicity. It’s about the juggling of disparate elements to create a harmonious finish" - David Thompson, author of Thai Food
If you love the food of Thailand and wish you could create their classic dishes at home this one day thai cookery class could be for you.
When someone mentions Thailand what do you think of? Is it the beautiful beaches, the breathtaking scenery, the awe inspiring temples, the warmth of the locals? Or like me is it the food? The flavours of Thailand are heady and aromatic. Lemongrass, ginger, chills, coconut milk, tamarind, kaffir lime leaves, fish sauce all blend together to create dishes that are exciting, refreshing, light and completely memorable.
We may not be able to recreate the experience of eating pad thai or a thai green curry on the white sands of the thai beaches. However we can try! All of the ingredients traditionally used in thai cookery are available to us in large supermarkets and its now completely possible to create authentic tasting Thai dishes at home.
On this one day class we’ll talk through the flavours of Thailand and how to use them. We’ll focus on the thai classics, the dishes you’ve eaten at your favourite Thai restaurant but wish you could make at home. For example we’ll make a thai curry paste and use it to make a delicious traditional curry. We’ll throw together a thai stir fry perfect for a healthy mid week meal. Overall together we’ll make approximately 6 different dishes depending on availability of ingredients and seasonality.
