Learn to eat Thai food as a family; be able to use what you learn when you want to again eat Thai food as a family, either in Thailand or back home. Learn about the flavours of Thai food, how to spice it up for adults; how to reduce the heat for the kids.
On this tour, you will be eating in some very local restaurants, where Thai families eat everyday as well as to other venues that serve fantastic food that all the family can enjoy.
This tour also includes some insights into Thai family culture and its relationship to food.
As everyone loves noodles, we start the tour with Thai Chicken Noodle Soup. This wonderful venue is a story in itself, as this family shows us how they have also become so successful taking a Chinese dumpling, Kanom Gui Chai, and elevating it to the next level. We see how this local family kitchen makes these traditional Chinese dumplings and, naturally, we taste these delicious morsels.
We find street food vendors are a great way for families to experience Thai food, with everything from sweet to savoury snacks on offer. We will introduce you to what we like to call TFC - Thai Fried Chicken. Forget the Colonel, this is fantastic deep fried chicken. We learn how to choose the best street vendors, plus see roadside sweets being cooked the traditional way, as we sample Khao Lam (ข้าวหลาม) - Sticky Rice Cooked In Bamboo and Gluay Tod (กล้วยทอด) - Succulent Fried Banana!
Our next venue would have you believing you are actually in the NorthEast of Thailand - Isaan. We like to call it 'Little Ubon'. The food from this region focuses mainly on two things, fresh grilled meats and spicy salads. Here we will taste food the whole family can enjoy.
Next we get you involved with how sweets are wrapped in banana leaves and test your skill at wrapping.
Our next destination is a relaxing garden venue where we taste Nam Prik Ong (น้ำพริกอ่อง) - the Thai version of Spaghetti Bolognese. We will also sample a Som Tam (ส้มตำ) platter. This tangy green papaya salad is fast becoming Thailand's national dish, as it is available everywhere. This mixed plate is about sampling the many different flavours on offer.
We finish the tour at a secret location both kids and adults will love. The place looks custom made for families to relax and enjoy some fabulous Thai food. It is a traditional Thai house perched right on top of the water.
