My Food Experiences
Join me for an exciting session with a Market Tour, followed by Cooking and Eating Thailand’s national dish: authentic Pad Thai! We will first ...
Bangkok ThailandView Experience
We met Namwan and her husband at a local wet market near their home and they explain the ingredients of the Pad Thai to us. Even as a Thai myself, I was not familiar with many ingredients that Namwan picked up so market trip was eye opening for me as well! After we made our way back to their home, we get ready and prepare to make the dish. As my friend and I do not cook at home, we were slow with our cutting but Namwan was very patient and showed us step by step. Eventhough I am not a big fan of Pad Thai, I must say that the Pad Thai that we made turned out hearty and delicious! The rice noodles are not too soggy or too and the balance of sweet, savoury and sour (from a squeeze of lime was perfect!). I also liked the fact that it was not too oily like the ones in most of eateries in Bangkok as well. Namwan may not be a professional chef but she really has a passion for cooking, using her free time to come up with various homecooked recipes!
