Cooking Class in Chiang Mai

One of the highlights of my time in Chiang Mai was taking a cooking class.  In a span of three hours, we made fish cakes, two curries, Pad Thai, onion rice, banana fritters and mango pudding.  Awesome! We assembled as a group in the morning, explored the local market to pick up fresh ingredients and then we came back to chop, cook & eat.

I loved learning about the spices we threw together to make the mysterious Thai curries that just melted in my mouth.  And I  learned how to make the infamous Pad Thai noodles which was ridiculously easier than I thought.  Finally, the coconut chicken curry soup was heavenly.  DSCF1262

 

The toughest part when I returned home to NYC was finding the ingredients, and fortunately, I found a lovely Thai grocery store in Chinatown that had it all.  If you ever venture to Chiang Mai, take a cooking class!  It’s well worth it.
