Fancy a home-cooked Thai meal for dinner? Just minutes away from the Hive Prakanong, you can spice things up with an authentic Thai cooking class. Offering up much more than some culinary skills, this homey joint brings together everything from a market tour to authentic dishes to give you a real taste of Thai culture – and a great evening out!
Kare met me at the sky train station and took me on a tour of her decidedly local market. She already had everything for the class, so she told me the history of the area while we wandered around her neighborhood. Then we got down to the cooking: pork & dill egg rolls, fried rice, noodle salad, and green curry. By the way, curry making is not for wimps. I manually mortar-and-pestled so much curry paste, my biceps ached and my hands were covered in blisters. And it was sooooo good.
Halfway through class Kare mentioned she is converting the cooking space by day into a bar by night, and was working on a few test cocktails and would I like to try one? Heck yes! For the rest of class, I sipped a delicious ice-cold combination of coconut milk, sugar and local Thai rum, garnished with peanuts.
When you’re finished with your lesson, enjoy the rest of your evening at Aroon’s bar with specialty cocktails made with Thai liquor.
