Pork and Shrimp Lettuce Wrap, Grapefruit Salad, Thai Green Chicken Curry, Coconut Pandan Jelly (Gluten Free) Marlene will show you how to recreate the authentic flavors from her childhood ... moreand from traveling extensively throughout Asia. On a mission to introduce more Asian dishes, Marlene & Jeff went on a culinary immersion early this year, taking classes in five cooking schools in Bangkok, Bali and Siem Reap. In this class, we will make green curry paste from scratch which will be the base for both our delectable appetizer and the mildly spicy and bursting- with- flavor Thai Green Chicken Curry, one of Marlene’s all-time favorites! A Grapefruit salad will be a refreshing palate cleanser and we finish with a light dessert of Coconut Pandan Jelly.

I consider myself a good cook and wasnt sure what exactly I would learn from this cooking lesson. But learn I did. There were some technical tips, some food buying tips, and I made dishes that I had never made before which was great and expanded my repertoire. The atmosphere was congenial and supportive. And the food was absolutely delicious! I highly recommend Marlene and Jeffs cooking classes and ... more plan to take some more!
