Traditional Arts Fair Workshop – Duang’s Classic Thai Cooking

June 27, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 2:30 pm


Our new series of Traditional Arts Fair Workshops

I love to cook and share my love of cooking. It is an experience of the heart, mind and senses.

After sixty years of fine tuning how to make food taste as good as it can be, I concluded that good food comes from good ingredients. Nothing can be better than fresh, local, seasonal and, whenever possible, organic foods.

All classes will be partially hands on and partially show and tell. In order to maximise your experience, classes are limited to a maximum of eight participants. This creates a class environment that is friendly, casual, interactive and intimate.

This workshop will be held in our Garden Room kitchen and will allow a maximum of 8 people to allow for social distancing.

A Complete Thai Dinner: My intention for this class is to provide tools and tricks for everyone to feel confident in understanding and creating a Complete Thai Dinner for family or guests. I will show and explain the basic essentials of a Thai pantry, where to get them and how to use them. Then together we will make an appetiser, at least three main dishes: curry starting with making the paste, another method of cooking protein, and a vegetable dish which may be a salad or a cooked vegetable. Cooking perfect rice is also essential in this class. Of course, no meal is complete without dessert.

Possible dishes include (but may change if ingredients are not available)

  • Thai fish cakes with sauce
  • Red curry paste for steamed custard curry
  • Som Tum salad using seasonal Australian vegetables and fruit
  • Vermicelli salad
  • Jasmine and rice medley


  • Tub Tim Krob (crunchy ruby) in sweet coconut sauce

​Produce used:

Most of the ingredients will be from surrounding farms, local, seasonal and fresh. We use organic produce whenever possible. Some ingredients will be from the garden less than 10 metres away from the kitchen.

Class Hours and Sharing of food and beverages:

All classes start at 10:30am and typically runs for 4 to 4 ½ hours. A light snack is served with homemade kombucha on arrival.

After class, we will sit down and enjoy lunch together with your beverage of choice:  wine, beer or homemade kombucha.
