The Little Kitchen Cookery School

One thing high on my to-do list when I visited Thailand was to take part in a Thai cookery class. There were tonnes to choose from in the northern city of Chiang Mai, so my new pal Tom and I went with one recommended by our hostel, The Little Kitchen. It turned out to be one of the best days of my entire trip! I met Tom randomly at the Paddy's day pool party at my hostel, turns out we have a few mutual friends and live about 30 minutes from each other. Such a small world! I love it when that happens.

We were expecting to be in a class of about 10, but it turned out it was just us two. Since we booked so last minute (a couple of hours before), I guess they had no classes planned for that afternoon. Which was perfect, as it meant we had 4 hours of one-on-one time with the chef. They even picked us up in a private car and drove us to and from the place, all included in the discounted price of 800baht/£16 each! Any activity you want to do can be organised through your hostel, so don't worry about having to book things yourself. You often get a slight discount too. For this price we made 5 dishes, with all ingredients included, which is incredibly cheap! You also get a certificate, which was such a cute touch, and recipe book to keep so you can recreate the dishes at home.

The class starts with a trip to the local market to buy fresh ingredients like meat and veg. We got to make 5 courses each papaya salad, pad Thai, green curry/massaman curry, tom yum soup and mango sticky rice. I was so excited to make my number 1 favourite Thai dish, massaman curry, which turned out beautifully! I was a bit disappointed we didn't get to make the curry paste from scratch, but it was pre-prepared fresh by the chef. The recipe book came with a recipe for the paste though, so i'll give it a go soon and share the recipe with you guys. I have since recreated the dish at home using Tesco massaman paste and it turned out amazingly tasty - you just an't go wrong with this curry!

The curry pastes are prepared with fresh ingredients by the chefs
Everything you need for a BOOM pad Thai
Smashed it
Tom Yum soup is so yum
Papaya salad
Thai green curry and chicken massaman curry
Mango sticky rice - a strangely delicious pudding
We stupidly went out for breakfast before the course, which was a big mistake! I was so full after the first two courses, that the last 3 went straight in the bin. I sooooo regret that now i'm sitting here drooling over these photos. DO NOT EAT BEFORE YOU GO!

I would recommend this cooking course to any budding chef. Even beginners will find it easy! I can't wait to cook more of these dishes at home. I lived on pad Thai, eating it most days in Thailand - for a noodle dish it's sooo full of flavour! YUM YUM.

My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. here is his Email: or call/text him on his WhatsApp +2347012841542

He is also able to cast spell like 1: Lottery 2: Conceive 3: Breakup 4: Divorce 5: Cure for all kinds of diseases and viruses.
