cooking school

i loved cooking school. this might be the best thing i’ve done here. and now i understand why people take cooking classes when they travel. from now on it will be on the top of my list.

i made pad thai (stir fried noodles in thai style).


and i made tom-yam-gung (hot and sour prawn soup).


and i made gang-keow-wan-gai (green curry with chicken).


and i made gai-pad-med-ma-muang-him-ma-pan (stir fried chicken with cashew nut). which looked like, well it looked good. because at this point i was too full to even think about taking pictures. but i wasn’t done cooking. because i also made paw-pia-tawd (non-greasy spring rolls) and kao-neaw-ma-muang (sweet sticky rice with mango).


that’s what the rice looked like after it had been soaked but before it was steamed.


and that’s what the rice looked like after it had been steamed. trust me, the finished product looked fantastic.

it all tasted great. and best of all, i’m pretty certain i could make it all again – on my own.
