Your host Pea
Pea is in her 60s and lives with her son, Jah, in a beautiful teak home, "Boonpratana House", which named after her sons, surrounded by gardens in Chiang Mai. Pea started cooking when she was 12. As the first daughter and fourth child in the family she remembers her mom waking her up early in the morning to buy food from the market, teaching her about the best ingredients and how freshness can influence a dish. Pea is such a good and creative cook that she can even get her sons to eat and enjoy bitter gourd, a vegetable that is renowned for people, especially children, despising! In your virtual cooking class, you will cook together three traditional Thai dishes, such as Gaeng Kiew Wan, a flavorful Thai green curry; Som Tam, a mildly spiced papaya salad and Larb, a minced meat salad.
