Thai Cuisine Class at The Maya Kitchen

Things are getting back to normal and so are cooking classes! My daughter and I got to attend The Maya Kitchen's Traditional Thai Cuisine class last July 16. Chef Patriya Pattamadilok conducted the special Thai cooking class. Coincidentally, Chaf Pat is at the helm of SOM'S Noodle House. You're a true-blooded foodie if you have been to the original location of SOM's. ;)

Learning to cook Thai cuisine at from an actual master chef is very different from learning to cook by oneself based on recipes or cooking videos. I mean, I've been cooking some Thai food dishes for years now but it is still different to learn hands-on from a chef. 

Chef Pat taught us three popular Thai dishes- Tom Yam Nam Khon, Pad Kra Pao, and Red Curry. Amongst the 3, I am adept at cooking Pad Kra Pao at home, seconded by Tom Yam. As for Red Curry, not much.  

Aside from chilis, Thai food's basic ingredients are: galangal, kaffir leaves, lemongrass, and lime. These five ingredients are almost always present in Thai dishes. Oh, and fish sauce and chili paste too! 

It was a fun class and Chef Pat has easy instruction for every one. My daughter and I learned a lot and it was really a cool experience to attend a cooking class together. Hope I can drag my husband next time.

Overall, it was a Saturday well-spent. Ingredients, recipes, aprons are included in the workshop fee. Chef Pat, and The Maya Kitchen staff are all supportive and guided us on our culinary journey. Can't wait for the next destination of the The Maya Kitchen's Asian Food Crawl series. 

On July 23, The Maya Kitchen is inviting coffee-lovers for a special baking session. You'll learn to make the best baked goods that will complement your cup of coffee. Contact The Maya Kitchen for more details or call: 0929-6796102/ 8892-5011 loc. 108 to reserve a slot.

Konnichiwa Saigosan! A new and funky izakaya recently opened at Uptown Mall headed by Chef Chris Oronce. This izakaya not only serves delectable dishes but is also a visual-feast.

NEW RESTO ALERT: Hà Nội Phố (Ha Noi Pho)

Makati has been a go-to place for my family and I to grab a meal or sometimes just to have a cup of coffee. Though, really, it’s mostly just us visiting our favorite spots. Recently, my mom went out of town so it was just my dad and I who went out for dinner.

Salcedo Market x Legaspi Market Tour

We haven't visited the weekend markets for years so I was giddy with excitement because I was able to visit both Salcedo and Legaspi markets this month, thanks to our Dusit Thani Manila staycation . To differentiate the two, Salcedo market  is held every Saturday at the Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village Makati while Legaspi market is held every Sunday at the Corinthian Carpark in Legaspi Village Makati. Since we were coming from Dusit Thani Manila, it was quite a long walk but it was early in the morning (around 8AM) and even Ayala and Makati Avenues were still without cars. Wow!
