Pranee loves to demystify the building blocks of Thai cuisine. In this class, she’ll focus on Thai herbs and spices, sharing recipes that feature eight different fresh varieties: Thai basil, ginger, green peppercorns, galangal, lemongrass, lime leaves, Thai chiles and cilantro. You’ll learn how these flavors meld to create Thai cuisine’s signature balance of sweet, sour, salty and spicy. To make the most of these flavors, Pranee will prepare Tom Kha Gai (chicken in galangal and coconut-lime broth with lemongrass and lime leaves) and Phad Phed Pla (pan-seared fish stir-fried with red curry, green peppercorns, ginger and crispy Thai basil).
Contains poultry and seafood; no dairy, eggs or gluten.
About the instructor: Pranee learned to cook from her mother and grandmother in Phuket, Thailand. When she came to Seattle, she brought her mortar and pestle and began cooking for friends. She is now a member of the International Association of Culinary Professionals and the owner of I Love Thai Cooking, where she teaches, sharing recipes and cooking wisdom. She goes to Thailand yearly to collect and preserve authentic recipes and is working on a cookbook. Pranee says, “You don’t need to visit Thailand to learn Thai cooking.”
