Coleen’s Travel Diary

Monday, 07 Feb 2011

Location: Chiang Mai, Thailand

MapColeen had set this day aside to attend cooking school. Just so happened that she was to be alone in the class, so Terry decided to join in as well.

We went to the local market to shop for ingredients, and then back to Orchid. It was a beautiful setting, with much of the cooking done outside. We learned to cook 11 Thai dishes, including spring rolls, chicken satay with peanut sauce and Pad Thai. The dishes were surprisingly easy to prepare and absolutely delicious.

At the end of the class we could hardly move, we were so stuffed. Won't have to eat for a few days.

We received a cook book with all the recipes, so look forward to cooking for our friends when we return home.

What a great experience!

Tomorrow we're off on a rain forest trek.
