After our amazing trip to the food market (see pictures below) we went back to the cooking school at the hotel and made four different dishes. Spicy Beef Salad, Spicy Ground Pork with Basil, Chicken Green Curry, and Phad Tai. The results were amazing. There were two other “students” besides John and I (me?). The chef-instructor would demonstrate and explain and then we would each go back to our own little kitchen areas and try and replicate it. The beef salad we ate right after we made it because it is best eaten straight away. The other three dishes waited for a feast at the end of the lesson.
Along with the trip to the food market, the cooking lesson was the highlight of our experiences in Thailand.
