COOKING WITH POO!
Come and join the Helping Hands Thai Cooking School and Cook with Poo! This is a small fair trade business operating out of the Klong Toey Slum in the heart of Bangkok. It’s a ‘grass roots’ Thai cultural & cooking experience. We will get a rare glimpse behind the scenes in Bangkok’s largest slum and also through Bangkok’s largest wet market, showcasing a wonderful array of local Thai produce, much of which we will taste and use in our cooking class.
Khun Poo is a long-time resident of Klong Toey who represents a remarkable model of success and positivity in an often stark and complex landscape of poverty and hardship. She is not only a talented chef, but is also loved for her vivacious, friendly and fun nature and has customers coming back to her school time and time again. You won’t be disappointed!
The class takes a maximum of 10 people, so if Wednesday 13th reaches maximum numbers and there is sufficient demand, ANZWG will take another group on Thursday 14th March.
