What better way to spend our last morning in Thailand than at a cooking class?
But first, these little piggies went to market, and what a market it was!
The vegetables were so fresh, the bees think they are still growing.
Thai “fast food” – all the necessary vegetables for soup, packaged together.
No wonder Thai food is so amazing–the ingredients are incredibly fresh!
Check out these master chefs.
Could that be Mike wearing a “do” rag??? Yes, it could, and it was.
The spring rolls were so delicious, I didn’t stop to photograph them–I think I might have inhaled them…but I DID capture our other glorious creations for your viewing pleasure.
Green curry–we all were coughing as we were stir frying this dish. Not sure what ingredient caused that reaction.
And the grand finale–sticky rice with mango. I have never, ever tasted such scrumptious mangoes. They were perfectly ripened, sweet and juicy.
Our group: 4 Lindas, 2 Barbaras,2 Marys, Shelley, Sue, Sandy, Caroline, Karen, Kitty
2 Gregs, Alex, Al, Hal, Mike, Owen, and Rod, obviously not in any particular order.
Good news, folks back home. When I return, I won’t be empty handed. There will be a cookbook in my chubby fist!
After class, we were loaded into vehicles that resembled army trucks. Caroline pointed out this comforting sign. Good to know our driver was trained!

NEXT GIRLS WEEKEND WE CAN ALL HAVE THAI FOOD
I kept thinking that you and San should have been at the class…you two are far more talented cooks than I am. We got TWO cookbooks, so one of them might end up being a prize.
Yum! You have inspired me. I must try cooking a few of those dishes!
I love the cookbook. Can you get mouse shit chili in Canada?
I haven’t actually been tempted to look for mouse shit chili. 🙂 I did find chili paste (though not roasted chili paste) and made the prawn soup tonight. It was pretty good! The recipe says it serves one but really it was enough for two. Living alone, of course, I stepped up to the plate … bowl, that is.
I will have all the ingredients ready for you to cook in HH.
Then I’ll have to bring Mike. He did all of the hard stuff! Thailand was amazing…in Laos now, and it too is really fantastic.
The foods looks great but you & mike look skinny!!
sounds like a new diet plan!!!
Let me tell you, the clothes ARE getting tighter!
