In the morning I go up to the pool area thinking I’ll get wet for a while then read while I dry off. I dip my toes in the water - oh my - this pool is cold! Instead of plunging in I sit on the edge of the pool and dangle my legs for a while. One of the 14 lounge chairs opens up so I grab it and spend the rest of my time reading on my tablet, which is what most people are doing.
The driver for Grandma’s Cooking School pulls up to the door of the condo at 3:45 pm. We are joining six Canadians who are family/friends - it should be fun. We’re driven to the outskirts of Chiang Mai to the organic farm and cooking school.
Again the chef demonstrates how to make the dish. The only variation in the recipe is the protein- shrimp, chicken or pork (or vegetarian). We chop away then fire up our woks. It is amazing how fast this dish is made - once all the ingredients are prepared. We all enjoy eating our creations, but I am getting full with two courses to go!
We are now equipped with skills and recipes for making Thai dishes, though I don’t think that we’ll be appearing on Iron Chef Thailand anytime soon.
