I recently attended the cooking school at Chaophraya in Manchester to learn how to cook Thai food at home. I’ve always been interested in making dishes from places I have visited so when I got the chance to attend, I was very excited! When we arrived at the restaurant we were greeted with a welcome drink and given an apron and chefs hat. We then made our way to the cooking stations where the chef leading the class gave us an introduction into Thai cooking and explained what we would be making during the session. The class is about 3 hours long and during this time you cook 3 dishes. Unlike most cooking classes. this one isn’t in the kitchen area but instead around a portable gas cooker stove and cooking stations on the tables within the restaurant. We began by making vegetable spring rolls, first chopping the vegetables and cooking them in a wok until soft, followed by filling the spring roll wrapper and rolling it to perfection!
