Hey dear! Do you:
you adore Thai food, but don't always feel comfortable making it at home because maybe it's better left up to Thai cooks who are the pros?
you feel like in order to cook Thai food you have to know all the secret magic tricks, and it would be impossible for someone who isn't Thai to learn them all?
you want to make awesome Thai food like Pad Thai at home, but have no idea where to buy tamarind pulp and palm sugar and how to make your own tamarind paste?
you've been to the Asian market all excited and left feeling overwhelmed and discouraged because you couldn't find what you needed?
If that's you, you aren't alone, I’ve been all of those too!
12 years ago I moved back to America from Thailand with my Thai Hubby, but had zero Thai restaurants within 30 miles of our home, and couldn't afford to pay $15 every day for Pad Thai that we used to get for $1.50 on the streets of Bangkok!
But I was head over heels in love with Thai food. So I knew I had to learn how to make it no matter how hard it would be for a non-Thai to learn all the secrets.
With the help of my Thai grandma-n-law, Thai Hubby, many online Thai chefs, and many many years of cooking Thai food and teaching Thai cooking classes now:
- I confidently peruse the aisles of Asian markets and know the best Thai ingredient brands to put in my cart
- I know when to use fish sauce or Thai thin soy sauce correctly and how to get my Thai food to taste like a Bangkok street vendor's
- If I don't have palm sugar, I can quickly whip out a substitute for it and other Thai ingredients that are hard to find in America
- I'm not Thai, but eat homemade Thai dinners at least 5 nights of the week, love cooking it for my friends, and my Thai Hubby and even my Thai mother-n-law ask for seconds of my Thai food!
But I'm not special!
You can be on your way to confidently cooking Thai food too after taking my first course in my Thai-Foodie Academy:
