Apparently, there is a Thai proverb which says that ‘before the peanuts are done, the sesame will burn’.
It is a roundabout way of saying do things in the right order.
Get your peanuts – and your sesame, lime juice and palm sugar – in the right order with today’s Big Deal on a Thai cookery master class at Chaophraya on Glasgow’s Nelson Mandela Place.
Authentic Thai dishes
Opened in 2012 and set over four floors, Glasgow’s Chaophraya is the largest Thai restaurant in Europe and it is certainly the most glam.
With today’s Big Deal, guests can discover the secrets of Thai cooking and ingredients with a hands-on, two hour cookery master class.
Available on Mondays and Tuesdays from 6.30pm, your experience will start with a chilled glass of Prosecco as you arrive.
Guests will be provided with chef hats which you can take home at the end of the evening.
After an introduction to Thai ingredients, your chef will demonstrate how to make three authentic Thai dishes.
The exact dishes will change for each session and range from stir fries and curries to traditional starters, and desserts.
Guests with specific dietary requirements are asked to tell the restaurant when booking so that dishes can be adapted.
After watching the demonstration, it is up to you to recreate the dishes – with a little help from the chef if need be.
Guests will then get to eat the dishes they have cooked. Dessert will be macaroons.
Class sizes will be kept to a maximum of ten so that each guest can benefit the most from the experience.
At the end of the evening, guests can take home their chef’s hat plus a goody bag.
This offer would make a fantastic gift for the Thai-food lover in your life. If you like Thai food, it’s also a great way to learn how to make it yourself.
Of course, today’s Big Deal would also be ideal for a night out with friends.
