today we went to cooking school. my third one to try out. and, by far, it had the best ambiance. see…
beautiful. we started with a tour of the organic farm the cooking school is located in the middle of. our instructor told us all about the vegetables, fruits and herbs they grow.
the first thing we made was curry paste. it’s hard work.
10 minutes later – not done, but she’s still smiling
my mom made green curry paste that went into green curry with chicken, which is my favorite, but just to change things up a bit i made red curry with chicken.
then we made soup. we both made tom yam with shrimp. which is quite tasty.
then onto the stir fry. my mom made chicken with basil and i made cashew chicken. yum.
at this point we took a break and gorged ourselves ate all that we had prepared. or at least all of it we could manage to stuff into ourselves. good thing this cooking school composts!
after a break and some wonderful lemon grass tea it was back to work. we had 2 more recipes to go. starting with desert. my mom made mango with sticky rice and i made bananas in coconut milk. (i have no pictures of either because i’d gone a little wonky after eating all that food.) and we brought both of these dishes home because it was absolutely impossible to eat one more bite.
and for our final dish we made spring rolls. they also came home with us. and it would seem i had gathered up a bit of my senses because i managed to snap a picture.
