Thai cooking class — experience the essence of Thai Cuisine
Thai flavors & textures
Traditional Thai dishes with a healthy twist
We'll bring Thailand to us in this Thai cooking class with a colorful array of fresh ingredients and synchronizing flavors. Let me demystify my favorites: Pad Thai, Pad Se Eew, Thai Green Curry, Tom Kha Soup, Larb Gai, Miang Kham, and Mango Sticky Rice.
We'll put a twist to these authentic dishes by adding zoodles and carrodooles to our Pad Thai. These are thin pasta-like slices of the veggies made with a "julienne peeler."
Your Thai 3-course meal includes:

Ingredients for Authentic Thai Cooking
There are many online sites with a comprehensive list of Thai cuisine. I suggest starting with Wikipedia’s Thai cuisine page — this is a site I donate to each month (it’s a nonprofit that operates on donations).
Here is a comprehensive list with fabulous descriptions from SeriousEats (.com) — a favorite site for in-depth solid information.
The spectacularly bold Thai flavors are combinations of sweet, sour and salty, not in any specific order. Here are some of my favorites:
- Fish sauce (the fermented pineapple vegetarian fish sauce is worthy!)
- Oyster sauce
- Galangal (easily available dried and powdered online, and seasonally fresh in some stores)
- Lemongrass (available fresh, dried, powdered and frozen)
- Fresh herbs (basil, cilantro, mint, parsley)
- Pandan leaves (available fresh and dried)
- Toasted rice powder
- Palm sugar
- Coconut milk & cream
This list is not complete nor in any specific order:
- Bell peppers
- Green onions
- Pole beans
Here’s a list with lovely images and short descriptions of vegetables, herbs & roots used in Thai cooking.
- Pork, chicken
- Fish, seafood
- Some beef, water buffalo
