I run a social enterprise, called Courageous Kitchen. Courageous Kitchen provides cooking classes for disadvantaged kids and teens. The classes aim to teach the students aged 6-15 to build self confidence, master cooking techniques, and the importance of good nutrition. With your support, proceeds from our cooking class activities will benefit our food charity!
I would like to invite all of you to truly experience an authentic and immersive Thai culinary experience. In this half-day experience, we will teach you some of your favorite Thai dishes from scratch. I want you to be able to see, touch, and taste in an authentic Thai neighborhood in Bangkok.
We will start off with a visit to the local market, where you get to meet sweet vendors there who have a collection of flowers in bloom, all sorts of vegetables and meat, and freshly pressed coconut milk to sell. I will share about the different ingredients that make Thai cuisine iconic. We can also discuss your dietary restrictions and preferences to tailor the recipes to your needs and wants. Before heading home, we will stop at a local street stall for a snack or grab coffee before we start the work.
Then, we will come to our home kitchen, where we will have a hands-on learning experience- yes, you get to pound the spices and ingredients too and have some fun at it!
Afterwards, we will enjoy the 3-course meal that we cooked, and dine together. In this social dining experience, I'd love to share some of my experiences of living in Thailand- both the fun side and also inspiring side.
I'd also love to hear your life stories, and exchange thoughts as we work together, to improve the world, 1 meal at a time.
