Cooking School here we come, today will be Spicy Salads.
Most impressive... Designed by the award-winning Bensley Design Studios in Bangkok, the Resort's lanna-style cooking facility celebrates northern architecture and traditional design. It is so good looking I would be happy just sitting and being part of the decor. Very peaceful......wishing my kitchen at home had the same feeling, I would never leave it!
Prior to the start of the class we make an offering to the "Cooking Spirit" , it promotes success...keep reading to see if it really works.
Pots of fresh herbs ready for picking on the school terrace.....
Everything set and ready to go!

Dragon fruit as a bowl .... Larb Muang Moo (Northern Spicy Pork Salad) minced pork, garlic, northern chilli powder, fish sauce, shallots, spring onion, Thai coriander, and mint.
