Chiang Mai – Cooking class

We slept in on August 21… we had been too active the previous days.

In the afternoon we looked into the other activities we wanted to do: a thai cooking class, visit an elephant sanctuary, and watch some real thai boxing.

We booked our trip to the elephant sanctuary for the next day, and we decided on a cooking class from 4PM to 8PM for this afternoon.

The cooking class started with a short trip to the market to learn about the ingredients.

We learn how to cook 4 different plates each, including making our own curry powder.

Darin cooked: Papaya salad, Hot and Sour Prawn soup, Green Curry with Chicken, Chicken with Cashew in Oyster Sauce.

Claudia cooked: Spring Rolls (veggie), Tom Ka Ghai soup, Pad Thai with Chicken, Red Curry with Chicken.

After the cooking class we decided we needed to go for a walk to try burn some calories. The chef dropped us off at the Saturday Walking Market. This market is only open on Saturdays and a lot more local people visit it. It was nice to be out of the tourist trap markets… we even bought a few souvenirs and gifts.
