Thai Cooking Class aboard Zoom Yacht

We cooked up a storm in our Thai cooking class on the Zoom yacht last week, in a galley fit for royalty. But lest you think this was all about the wonderful ship and galley, let me tell you about the food!

We cooked up a big batch of green curry first, featuring some gorgeous, fresh kaffir lime leaves. We shredded them up finely and got a great lime boost in our potful of curry. We also used the creamiest possible coconut milk – yum! And the clincher – we had beautiful, fresh Thai eggplants to use too. Not just the mature ones either, we used the “baby” eggplants as well.

Next up came our Tom Yum Goong. We were able to use giant Italian prawns; some of the nicest-looking crustaceans I’ve ever seen. And this sour soup was destined for greatness anyway, benefiting from an amazing collection of fresh ingredients, including fresh galangal root, just picked Thai chillies and freshly cut lemongrass straight from the garden.

Of course, where there are Thai food lovers, there will always be demand for Pad Thai. We used some of those gorgeous prawns, as well as chicken to cook two large pans’ worth. It really came out tasting good, and we made a huge platter full for the hungry folks on board.

And for desert, the Thai standard called “Tub Tim Krob” which we made using red and yellow colors. This crunchy, sweet desert really hit the spot after eating all the other food.

Beautiful and delicious Tub Tim Krob

    OMG you ladies cooked up a storm! The food tasted as good as it looked too, maybe better. It’s rare that I’ve had this food made with the full list of fresh Thai herbs and spices. Aroi maak maak!
