A recent visitor to the Thai cooking classes described me as “hilarious” in her travel blog (and she wasn’t even referring to my chubby face or the fact that my shirttail always seems to come untucked out of my pants). I appreciated the compliment as I try hard to make the Thai cooking classes both informative and fun.
I had a visitor to the Thai cooking class named Nadine Sykora, a twenty-something Canadian who has created her own niche as a video blogger / world traveler / Internet personality. Nadine has made hundreds of videos and has a huge number of subscribers on YouTube and Facebook. I was so impressed she had the self- confidence and creativity to make informative and often very funny videos and blog posts.
Nadine was invited by the Contiki travel tour company to enjoy and document many trips, including a visit to Thailand. Contiki offers travel adventure trips in over 40 countries for travellers ages 18 to 35. Nadine and a group of jolly and inquisitive Contiki visitors joined in on a Thai cooking class. We made Southern Thai Massaman curry (the recipe for this dish is included in this blog) as well as some other dishes.
