It is always inspiring to me when I meet a teacher who has so much to offer and does so freely without any prejudice or secrecy.
Ajarn Mallie is such a teacher this weekend I spent with her learning to make herbal drinks hot or cold was a great time. It is not easy work and takes 3 people a couple of hours but the rewards are worth it a natural product that is great tasting and healthy.
I hope to continue my training under Ajarn Mallie she has such a wealth of knowledge I feel I need to take advantage of the opportunity as it may not come again.
I had a great day yesterday learning how to make Steamed Pork Buns and Siu Mai as well as other things.
I have rekindled my passion for cooking especially, Thai food and the great tasting street and snack food.
Over the last four years I have studied with some great teachers of Thai food and yesterday was with Ajarn Mallie who has a great knowledge including the use of Sa Mun Pai (herbs and flowers etc).
I hope to continue my learning and I am forever trying to improve my own specialties of Thai sweets and maybe offer tuition to others who wish to partake of the special flavours of the land of smiles.
