In her vegan cooking classes she teaches about 20 people in one class what is a lot of people! But since there is not so much interest in raw food, we were the only ones there that day (Sander and me). It was great, since we could see everything up close and ask what ever questions and got the most attention. It was more expencive also, about 6000 baht for two of us, what is about 180 Australian dollars or 190 United States dollars or 153 Euros.
The class started at 10 am and lasted until 4 pm, 6 hrs. We did about 10-15 different recipes - dips, crackers, several salads and dressings, raw pizza, pasta and cheesecake. It was fun and very relaxed class. She introduced different ingredients and spices i have never heard of, many of them often used in Thai foods.
Raw class took place in a beautiful house where she holds her cooking classes. It is amazing how peaceful and quiet it is there, even though you are in Bangkok. Its located in the middle of houses and little streets so you cant hear the noise of a big city.
We got a recipe book, where we could write down all the recipes we made in this class.
Different dips we made: Hummus, Almond-cucumber sauce, Mango sauce...
Banana flower salad
After looong day Sander is tired and feeling little bit queasy because of all of these oily recipes :P
Overall it was a great class and i got some inspiration, but i have to admit, i felt hangovered after all of these fatty-oily-nut laden recipes. I didnt even want my last-day Durian!!! And the next day i felt like fasting :-O
May Kaidee is a very sweet person. She actually has two restaurants, one in Chiang Mai and she has published a recipe book. Right now she is working on a raw recipe book. She even took pictures for her book in our raw class. So maybe we gonna see our recipes in her next book :)
