This was my favorite thing we did in Chiang Mai. Three friends, my husband and I traveled to Chiang Mai during an Asia trip we took this winter ... one of our friends wanted to take a cooking class, and everyone else was luke-warm on it. Needless to say, it was everyone's favorite stop in Chiang Mai. Run by a husband-and-wife team, our half day cooking class started at 9am in the morning, when Pot, our wacky instructor, picked us up from our hotel and brought us to the market to learn about Thai ingredients. We wandered around the market for a little while, bought beer (if you want to drink, you have to bring your own), and went over to Pot's house, where the class is taught. We each got to pick a soup, a noodle dish, and a curry to make. Then Pot teaches you how to make everything from scratch. The whole experience was hilarious and really fun -- Pot definitely had us laughing the whole time. We took the half day class, and I'm really glad we did -- there was SO MUCH FOOD. We couldn't finish all of it, and we could barely eat dinner that night (Pot is totally cool about packing up your food to go). After the meal we got to meet Pot's son, who he calls Peter Pan, and his menagerie of pets ... including a 2 week old kitten, 3 day old puppies, and a bird. It was an awesome stop ... and I never knew I was such a good cook! Actually can't wait to make the dishes I learned at my NYC apartment.
