After the wat tour, we headed back to the hotel for a swim and then were picked up for our evening Thai cooking class at Baan Thai Cookery School, which was within walking distance from our guesthouse
We then headed back to the school to start cooking. In order to maximize the dishes that we could try, Jeff and I each cooked different items. I made, hot and sour soup, papaya salad, fried cashew chicken and Chiang Mai noodles with chicken while Jeff made chicken in coconut milk soup, spring rolls, stir-fried prawn with curry powder and panaeng curry with pork. Unfortunately, we both made several of our dishes way to spicy! Those little chilies have quite the kick. My hot and sour prawn soup was so spicy that I couldn't even eat it. We received cookbooks and I could definitely see myself making the fried cashew nuts with chicken and the papaya salad (you can use cucumbers or apples instead of green papaya). Overall, we thought this was a great experience - we had never done anything like this before. However, at the end we were both stuffed, which is a first for the meals that we've had in Thailand.
