Cultural Connections

Traidhos Cooking Academy staff Khun Nae believes that part of the role of the Cooking Academy is to introduce students to the traditional ways of cooking in Thailand and to share the stories told to her by her grandparents’ generation. Outside of the Cooking Academy sala, is a small museum which features some of the traditional northern cooking pots and utensils. There are also cards showing the properties of different herbs, popuar in local kitchens. Students are encouraged to think of the benefits of the wooden and pottery utensils and to consider what is more commonly used to do the job today.

If you have not looked at the display, come and seek it out the next time you are near the Cooking Sala.
