Live Cooking Pad Thai Class from Chiang Mai, Thailand!

The Art of Pad Thai, Live from Thailand

Join us for a live cooking class from Chiang Mai with our incredible Hill Tribes host, to learn how to prepare Pad Thai, a beloved Thailand dish. 

Experience culture through cuisine! Have our chef LIVE from the Hill Tribes of Thailand show you how to make one of the most beloved dishes on the planet: Pad Thai! Your friends and family will be grateful you did. Together we will cook this cuisine from our local Northern Thailand family recipe that is used as a quick, fresh every day meal all over Thailand. Once ingredients are assembled and prepped, the dish only takes about 15 minutes of actual cooking time. All ingredients are from your own kitchens and the recipe us adjustable to match what your local grocery carries. The recipe can also be easily adapted to be vegetarian or vegan. There will also be time for a Q&A session for special ingredients that you might have at home and not sure how to use it properly. We will stay with you throughout the cooking session and guide you through each step.
