About Mama Thai Cooking Club Many people love Thai food, and for good reason ... it’s delicious! But most Americans are only familiar with Thai-Western fusion cuisine through pre-packaged ingredients and are missing out on the full flavors and health benefits that authentic, traditional Thai cooking can offer. Cooking with Mama Thai’s Jirayu (that’s me!) offers students the building blocks for preparing real Thai food from scratch. We’ll instruct you in the health benefits of various traditional Thai ingredients and put it all together to ensure each student is capable of cooking several delicious dishes for friends and family. You will learn the mortar-and-pestle technique for creating Thai curry and chili pastes, fruit-carving and other decorative arts, how to shop for the best ingredients and other important yet simple ways to ensure your Thai cooking is great tasting, great looking, and almost completely unprocessed. With our building blocks, creating delicious healthy meals will be done in a snap. No more fussing around for hours to make dinner! My philosophy is simple: When students are well-versed in the fundamentals of authentic Thai cuisine, they will be able to experiment with different ingredients and combinations, fusing what they like best about Thai food and other culinary traditions. Cooking with us offers Full Thai, Vegetarian, and Vegan, each according to students’ preferences and diet. Dishes not on the menu can also be taught for advanced cooking students. A few ingredients commonly used in Thai cooking, such as shrimp paste, take literally months to prepare. Instruction for making all ingredients from scratch is available, though most students may opt for buying certain hard-to-make items pre-packaged, at first.
