The Field Kitchen–Dinner Tonight: Thai

Date/Time
08/13/2016
11:00 am – 2:00 pm


Thai cooking emphasizes lightly prepared dishes with strong aromatics and a spicy edge. Most Thai recipes combine several of the basic tastes: hot, sour, salty, spicy and bitter to create complex and mouth-watering flavors. This class will introduce you to common Thai ingredients and where to shop for them, and will inspire you to cook a fabulous Thai feast for friends and family. We will prepare recipes such as:

-Green papaya salad
-Chicken Laarb (Spiced chicken salad)
-Tom Yum Goong (Hot and sour soup with shrimp)
-Garlic noodles with pork; cucumber salad
-Sticky rice with fresh mango

The Dinner Tonight series is for beginning-to-intermediate level cooks who want to learn recipes that they can recreate at home. Students will prepare both simple weeknight recipes, and also dishes that can be made ahead of time for busy weeks. Each class will focus on basic knife skills and other techniques that make cooking easier and more pleasurable.

Take just one class, or sign up for all four! Each class is $130, or $470 if you sign up for the entire series of four.
