The kitchen is statistically the most dangerous room in a home because it contains the highest concentration of knives, open flames, and pots full of semi-living lobsters. Learn to navigate this danger zone with today’s Groupon for a cooking class at Herbal Thai in Silver Spring. Classes are held on the second and fourth Sundays of the month from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Choose between the following options:
- For $35, you get a Thai cooking class for one (a $70 value).
- For $65, you get a Thai cooking class for two (a $140 value).
The culinary connoisseurs at Herbal Thai shepherd novice chefs through the steps of making a Thai soup-and-curry duet during two-hour cooking lessons. Duos or singles join groups of 10 or fewer and receive personalized attention as they measure, stir, and simmer components to create tom kha soup, then flaunt designer tupperware to make curry turn green with envy. The class instructor also acquaints pupils with nearby locations where necessary ingredients can be purchased, making it possible to recreate recipes in home kitchens or while sitting around office campfires.
Using the same recipes they use at home, Herbal Thai’s owners prepare traditional Thai dishes using time-honored family recipes and incorporating scintillating Thai herbs and spices. Friendly staff members plop plates of pad thai and panang curry in front of patrons as fish fillets sizzle under a three-flavor sauce in the kitchen. Twice a month, Herbal Thai’s cooking classes introduce amateur chefs to the process of crafting Thai curry and soup using raw shrimp, vegetables, and mushrooms. During both class and dinner, a panoply of aromas fills the restaurant with the tangy notes of chili-lime dressing and curry powder.
