As you enter our cozy log cabin, you'll be welcomed by me, Sherri Pengjad, the voice behind the popular Thai cooking blog, Thai-Foodie. First, I will share with you how I fell in love with Thai food, my Thai hubby, and then Thai cooking. Then you'll work in the kitchen with me to make three dishes: *Tom Kah Gai, a flavorful Thai chicken coconut soup: I will show you tricks for working with its unique ingredients such as lemongrass, galangal and kaffir lime leaves. * Pad Thai, a beloved shrimp rice noodle dish: Then I'll demonstrate how to make tamarind paste from scratch, and from that make your own Pad Thai sauce, and explain the pro tips on how to stir-fry tricky rice noodles. * Mango and Sticky Rice, a favorite Thai dessert: Last but not least, I'll share the hack for how to make sticky rice if you don't have a sticky rice steamer, and the secret behind how to choose and cut the best mangos. At the end of the class, we will eat our Thai dishes together as we sit either at our long farm table by the cozy fire, or outside on our front porch while taking in the mountain views, as I answer your questions about Thai cooking and Thai culture.
Sherri And Dominic
I'm Sherri Pengjad, the voice behind the popular Thai cooking blog, Thai-Foodie, which I've been sharing Thai recipes on for the last 7 years. I've lived in Thailand and have taught Thai cooking classes all over the world. My Thai hubby and I have been married 10 years, and he adores my Thai cooking. If me, an American girl from North Carolina, can become an expert in making Thai food that even my Thai mother-n-law loves, than you can learn too, and I'd love to teach you how!

The Thai cooking class will take place at our log cabin in Vilas, NC. We like to see our home as shelter from the storms of life to those who visit, and hope you feel that as you are in our cozy open updated kitchen. We will eat our Thai feast either outside on our big front porch while taking in the mountain view or inside at our long farm table near a warm fire.
BYOB-Feel free to bring your own beer or wine, if you'd like to enjoy during the class.
We have young four kids, so you might end up meeting them at some point during the class.
