Fabulous Food Tour to Thailand

Images from the temple wall
We have just returned from another fabulous food tour of Thailand. A wonderful group who all added in their own unique way to the fun and frivolity. We returned to my favourite cooking schools and learnt the secrets to the sweet, salty, sour and spicy flavours that make Thai food distinctive. All ingredients, we are very lucky to source in our country, unfortunately not at the same cheap price.
Unless we shop at the market, the quality and freshness are appalling compared to the standard there.
The lack of packing and presentation of product is amazing in all the different markets we went to.

 Totally inspiring to go and cook ! Eat well for not a lot of money. Some of the produce available is not so tempting!
Red Ant Lava tastes like custard
We wandered alleys and lanes sampling lots of different foods from China India and Thailand which is a great way to learn the multicultural history of early Thailand. Each new taste was embraced by all
and each new experience captured our hearts and imagination. Culture was included and shopping added to the whole adventure. Cooking classes were wonderful and made all the more  entertaining  because of the gorgeous Thai chefs teaching us with a great sense of humour in their broken english.
A great time was had by all and we have come back with many happy memories, new friends and a new appreciation of Thai food .
Really looking forward to the next trip.
