Classic Thai with Corinne Trang

  • 6:00pm
  • 37b north front street, kingston, ny 12401

There’s so much more to Thai food than Pad Thai, and Corinne Trang, author of the “Essentials of Asian Cuisine” is going to show you firsthand with this crash course in Thai cooking.

Thai cooking places emphasis on lightly prepared dishes with strong aromatic components and a spicy edge, often juggling disparate elements to create a harmonious finish.  Striking the right balance of sweet, sour, salty and spicy is what makes these dishes sing.

On the menu: Green Papaya Salad, Red Eggplant Curry, Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce, and Custard-filled Steamed Kabocha Pumpkin. We’ll also make a Sweet Thai tea to be enjoyed throughout. Chef Trang is one of our most rigorous instructors so come prepared to work!

$85 per student includes 2.5hr workshop and recipes PLUS eat-what-you-make! Please feel free to BYOB if you would like to imbibe while we eat.
