The Blue Elephant
One of the things we wanted to do is take an authentic thai cooking class. Both being a fan of thai dishes, we decided to unlock the mystery of creating them. It's not as hard as one might think. The dishes were surprising simple and easily made. Preparing the ingredients took much longer than cooking it. It was super fun and we have some great ideas now and the know-how to implement them. Just to find the time now....:) We started out at the market with our chef's assistant. She explained what different fruit and veggies were as well as let us taste a few things. It was fun to visit an original market, frequented by locals and full of fresh, tempting produce. Then we returned to the building and were shown how to make a dish (there were four menus) and then we had to go make it too. Then they got it ready for us and we ate in their restaurant, our own food. It was really neat. The flowers are really pretty everywhere and I loved that they were simply done but looked so cool.
