Thai Street Food
December 7 @ 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM EST$50
Thai cuisine is full of aromatic ingredients, cooking styles, and dish decorations. In this online interactive class, we’ll make 3 authentic Thai dishes and herbal tea: Thai spicy salad (Yum Woon Sen), Pad Thai (Ko-Rat style), Red Curry with Steamed Jasmine Rice, and Lemongrass Ginger Tea. Join Ploy, a native Thai who will teach you the skills and authentic recipes to recreate your Thai dishes at home. You’ll also learn about where to shop locally for the freshest ingredients.
In about 2 hours, we’ll make a full course meal as follows:
– Yum Woon Sen (Yum means salad and Woon Sen means vermicelli) – it tastes fresh and balanced through fresh vegetables and seasoning. The main proteins are ground pork and shrimps, but you are welcome to use ground chicken or ground turkey where shrimps could be optional. If you would like to make a vegetarian version of this salad, you can substitute ground pork and shrimps with any mushrooms. This dish is often sold on a street vendor which we consider Yum Woon Sen as Thai street food.
– Pad Thai (Ko-Rat Style) – There are many styles of Pad Thai in Thailand. Ko-Rat is one of the provinces in Thailand. The signature of the dish is about the noodles that particularly made in this province. This dish is very similar to Bangkok Pad Thai but there are some different ingredients and cooking techniques that make this dish so unique and became so popular in Thailand. You can choose to make this dish with chicken breast, shrimps, or tofu.
– Red Curry with Steamed Jasmine Rice – Thai curry dishes tend to have only a few or no vegetables at all. Red curry is one of a few curry dishes that contain complete nutrients in one dish. This dish is spicy but not as spicy as the green curry. With full of different vegetables and ingredients, this dish has diverse flavor profiles. It serves with steamed jasmine rice. You can choose to make this dish with chicken breast, chicken thigh, tofu, or assorted vegetables.
– Lemongrass Ginger Basil Tea – Thai people love herbal drinks. Lemongrass ginger basil tea is a perfect herbal drink in the winter. Stay cozy and make this delicious drink at home and will help you sleep well.
These dishes are naturally gluten free.
While the food is cooking, Ploy will show you how palm sugar and coconut milk have been made in Thailand and how we use all parts of coconut trees from roots to fruits in our daily life.
