H3 is proud to present a Thai food class led by Day Longsomboon, owner and chef at Tamarind Thai Restaurant. Join us on this healthy journey and learn how to cook Thai food, a healing fuel for our body.  After preparing your own Thai meal, you will have the pleasure of eating it.

There is an old saying that Day firmly believes in, “we are what we eat”. We should be conscious about what we put into our bodies and choose foods that will be beneficial to our health and fuel energy. Thai cuisine is extremely healthy and often overlooked by many people. The thought of cooking Thai food at home can be a little overwhelming and a bit unexpected.

At this workshop, Day Longsomboon will show easy step by step basics on how to prepare authentic and flavorful Thai dishes ranging from soup and salad to a main dish. In addition, she will also share her approach to cooking as a way to relieve stress, relax and enjoy the art of preparing food. Participants will gain the confidence to return to their own kitchens and effortlessly recreate those dishes and many more.

Salad: The most famous Green Papaya Salad and its variations.

Main dish: One dish meal of rice cooked with mixed vegetables and its variations.

Drinks: Complimentary refreshment—Ginger Lemonade.
