Ever wanted to learn how to cook authentic Thai? Hot, sour, salty and sweet – this Thai cooking lesson will teach you to create the delicate balance of flavours that makes Thai cooking unique. With helpful and experienced instructors you will be able to try out your newfound skills in the kitchen at home and impress your friends and family!
Thai cooking is characterised by zesty flavours – everything from hot and spicy to cool and refreshing. Thai curry ingredients are pounded with a pestle in a stone mortar to make curry paste. Thai cooking uses fresh garden produce and beef, pork, poultry or seafood with exotic combinations of herbs and spices to produce its special flavour and popular appeal.
Your cooking class with Pip Kerslake will equip you with a range of skills and an array of authentic Thai recipes. Class menus constantly change with the seasonal availability of fresh produce and the variety of ways to prepare them. You will learn to prepare things like:
Red, green and Mussaman Thai curry pastes
Traditional Thai curry
Thai fish cakes with an authentic Thai dipping sauce
Thai chicken dumplings with a peanut and lime dressing
Fragrant Thai cucumber salad
Som Tam salad
Steamed jasmine rice infused with Kaffir lime leaf
90% of recipes are gluten free, and gluten free options can be included in any class by notifying us when you book.
