It is also relatively low in protein and saturated fat. In this class, you will learn how to use Mediterranean ingredients to create inspiring, delicious & healthy recipes.

Classes are intended to be relaxed and fun, reflecting the Thai approach to life. Thai cooking is extremely flexible and, although you will be given recipes, the emphasis is on understanding the ingredients and flavours and using your senses to make adjustments while you cook. You will be introduced to the key ingredients and flavours in Thai cooking - sweet, sour, salty and spicy. Throughout the class and an 'active tasting' approach, you will learn how to create these flavours and, importantly, how to balance them.
