Freshen up! Thai food really shines and relies upon the freshest ingredients around to make its dishes really sing. Learn the secret freshness of Thai in this class as we work with simple, raw ingredients that are packed with flavor as well as ZING. Simple, fresh concepts applied to your cooking keep you fit, healthy, and alive (all spiced up!). Strong, aromatic components define Thai dishes, their spicy yet balanced in flavor. We’ll learn how simple it is to perfect Thai and begin to demand more than the greasy, soupy take out we often see at fast food style Thai restaurants. This class emphasizes fresh herbs, chilies, and fresh vegetables from herby rolls to zesty and crunchy salads to citrus seafood. We’ll even make some fresh Thai condiments to boot and top the class off with some fresh Thai style dessert!
