I have to do a little plug here for a place my hubby and I went this week. It was a cooking class put on by ‘Culinary Events Northwest’ (www.culinaryeventsnw.com) I came across their events by happy accident and ended up booking classes for us to celebrate Tom’s birthday. Wow! It was fun!!
Here’s what we ended up making (and eating!):
We started with three appetizers. Por Pia Tod (spring roll with sweet and sour sauce), Phoo Ja (crab cake with cucumber salad and sweet chili sauce — the crab cake is under there, I swear), and Miang Kam (a delicious tidbit wrapped in Chapoo leaf – described as an explosion in your mouth, and Oh It Is!)
Our chef (Pranee Halvorsen) was fun, entertaining, and quite the awesome cook. I suppose it didn’t hurt that these dishes were true Thai meals that she credited often to her grandmother. They were all so fresh and easy. They also had a wine specialist that chose a variety of wines for tastings during each of the different courses.
Will we do it again? In a heartbeat! What a great date night. If you life in the area and enjoy cooking, I definitely recommend you check them out.
