Cooking up a storm

Last night we attended the Asia Scenic Thai Cooking School for a master class in Thai food. The class was run by the lovely Gayray from an open air kitchen at her house. We had a fantastic time on the course and Gayray was a great teacher.

We started with a tour of her garden where we learnt about all the different herbs and spices that are used in Thai cuisine before heading out for a tour of a local food market. Then it was back to Gayray's for a hands on lesson into the secrets of Thai cooking.

We learnt how to cook a whole variety of dishes including starters, stir frys, currys and deserts. We also got to make a range of curry pastes from fresh ingredients. The best bit of the course was that we got to eat everything that we made!

We can't wait to try out the recipes when we get home. Here's Liz with her rather impressive spring rolls . . .
