Thai Cook and Eat
The following items will be demonstrated during this cooking class:

- "Hor Bai Dtoei" - Coconut and pandanus perfumed rice;
- “Kaeng Phed Ped Yang ” - Succulent roasted duck red curry with Thai egg plants, cherry tomatoes, lychees and spices.
The word "Thai" means free, and therefore Thailand means the "land of the free". Previously the country was well-known to the world as "siam" and only on May 11, 1949 did an official proclamation changed the name of the country into " Prathet Thai" or "Thailand" by which it has since come to be known throughout the world. One of the greatest joys of Thai people is the love of good food and the sharing of food. Thais like to nibble – a little here, a little there – around three light meals. They like variety, too, preferring not to eat a lot of one thing, but a little bit of a lot of different things throughout the day. In Thailand, these eating habits are easily satisfied by the wealth of varieties of tantalizing "street food" that are sold each day along the sidewalks near shopping areas and marketplaces, bus stations and business offices and busy neighbourhood centers. Thai cuisine is a favourite of gourmet food aficionados around the world. It is well known for diversity of ingredients, complex spiciness and intricate flavours and aromas. Many Thai dishes are even prepared with a blend of herbal ingredients that are purported to have health benefits. There is such a broad range of favourite Thai food dishes available that many people will come to Thailand and wonder where to begin. An important (mostly unconscious) principle of Thai food is a balance of five flavours – spicy, salty, sweet, sour and bitter.
Having travelled to Thailand numerous times, Chris is always enticed and tempted with the Thai food which include some his favourite dishes in this class.
