Cooking classes are a great way to meet other travelers and experience how food is created in a country you are visiting.
One of the interesting things about Asian countries is their fresh food markets and we always take a wander through them to get an understanding of how things are done and what the locals eat.
Every cooking class we have enjoyed always starts with a visit to the market to purchase the food for the class.
Ok, frogs legs were not on our menu but they WERE available at the market……
So was a terrific choice of turtles (? Tortoises)
We bought a stack of different, fresh ingredients and made our own green curry paste for the first recipe, including our own coconut milk. ( following the amount of work and sweat involved, go for the store bought green curry paste and cans of coconut milk…..)
