Back in September we attended a one-day Thai cookery course in beautiful Chiang Mai where each participant learned to make seven different dishes including starter, soup, salad, main course, a curry paste and a desert. We began the day by having a quick garden tour to discover the kind of herbs you only see in specialist Asian shops here.
That was followed by a visit to the local market and an inspection of the fresh local goodies. On return to the school and following a quick explanation of the different ingredients and utensils, we got down to cooking. Ani was enthusiastic, patient and professional and made the whole day a memorable occasion. Here are some photos of our efforts:
