What to explore at Floating Market & Cooking Class - Rural Thai food and canal-side life?
8:00: Meet at Wutthakat BTS SkyTrain Station, Exit 2, and drive for around an hour to Tha Kha Floating Market.
9:00 – 11:00: Explore this long-running and authentic floating market. You’ll meet the vendors, pick up the best ingredients, try some handmade snacks and be rowed down a quiet canal to a coconut sugar farm.
11:15 – 15:00: Private cooking class in a lovely open kitchen set along side the canal. You’ll learn how to prepare four local dishes from scratch and then try out your creations in the spacious dining area.
16:30: Return to Wutthakat BTS Station. Along the way you’ll stop to see one of the salt farms where some of Samut Songkhram’s famous briny salt is produced.
*These times are estimates, and we don’t normally stick to a rigid schedule unless the customer requests to be back at a certain time. There may even be time for an extra surprise or two. ;)
About Chili Paste kitchen:
The cooking class takes place at an open-air fan-cooled roofed kitchen set in a beautiful spot with the quietly flowing Tha Kha canal on one side and tropical gardens on the other. It’s a wonderfully relaxing place to cook. Ingredients can be prepped the old-school Thai way, on grass mats on the floor, or on sturdy tables. You’ll learn traditional Thai cooking techniques, such as how to make coconut milk from scratch and how to pound the base ingredients in a mortar.
About the instructor:
Owner of Chili Paste Tour and avid Thai foodie, Chin Chongtong also has a passion and talent for imparting her extensive knowledge in the kitchen. Unlike some instructors that pre-prepare ingredients and teach only “Western-friendly” Thai dishes like pad Thai and spring rolls, Chin will teach you little-known ut terrific dishes using some of the more obscure ingredients. She always aims to stay true to the traditional ways of Thai cooking.
Examples of foods you’ll learn to prepare:
- Haw Mok Pla: curry fish cakes steamed in banana leaf.
- Mieang Pla Tuu: sticky rice noodles and locally famous Thai mackerel wrapped with fruits and spices in local leafy greens.
- Saeng Wa Khung: spicy river prawn salad made with local ingredients.
- Yum Makrua Yao: green eggplant salad.
- Tom Gai Madan: sour chicken soup made with the local vegetable, madan.
- Gaeng Pet Ped Yang: chu chee style red curry with roasted duck.
- Tom Klong Pla Salid Grob: crispy gourami fish soup with aromatic herbs.
- Gai Tort Takrai: spiced chicken skewered on lemongrass stalks and fried.
- Khanom Jin Nam Yaa Krathi: sticky rice noodles with spicy fish red curry.
- Yum Samut Songkhram: Chin’s own salad creation featuring edible flowers, a local type of seaweed and an orange/kaffir lime hybrid.
- Tup Tim Grob: A traditional dessert of water chestnut and icy coconut milk.
*The actual dishes prepared will depend on what’s available in the markets, as some ingredients are seasonal. However, do let us know if any of the above looks especially interesting, or if you’re keen to learn any other Thai dishes. The classes are private so there’s a lot of room for tailoring to your tastes. Vegetarians are also welcome.
