12 Oct 2016 Reasons Why To Take Chiang Mai Cooking Class
Because Thai food is Awesome
Visit A Local Market
Chiang Mai cooking class usually start with a walk through a local market to get everything to make the dish. Start the day off just as the locals do at the local market. Don’t expect to purchase any fake ray-bans or Chang tanks tops here! Part of Thai cooking is going to the local market daily to get fresh ingredients.
Learn the Names Of Ingredients
Curry is my go-to dish at any Thai restaurant. I love them all green, red, Penang, yellow, you name the curry I want it. On your Chiang Mai cooking class you will learn how to make curry paste, which is necessary for all curry recipes. Be prepared for a workout, a lot of elbow grease is put into making curry paste by hand. After what seems like an eternity of mortaring I now have a new appreciate for every bite of curry I take.
Enjoy a Tasty Thai Meal
After slaving away in the kitchen it’s time to eat all the tasty dishes created. For some reason meals always taste better to me homemade, I know what it took to make the dishes. No need to find a restaurant for dinner after your Chiang Mai cooking class, you’ll be stuffed!
So You Can Make It At Home
Bring a little part of your vacation home with you all the recipes from the Chiang Mai cooking class. Impress your friends with your new found cooking skills, and bring back memories from your time in Thailand at your Chiang Mai cooking class. I know every time I make curry (I cheat and buy the paste now), I think back to the time in my Chiang Mai cooking class that I made it by hand the very first time.
