CHIANG MAI, THAILAND :: PART 2 BAAN THAI COOKING SCHOOL // market tour, fresh vegetables, ingredients, snacks

Just a short walk from the Baan Thai Cooking School, instructors loaded up our baskets with fresh, local ingredients.

Our English Speaking Baan Thai instructor showed all 7 of us:

…how he makes coconut milk… seriously, just squeeze!

… different types of eggplant in Thailand…

… a variety of Thai limes…

… three different types of basil (including my new favorite- lemonbasil)!!

… their version of a “ready-to-cook” vegetable set

… and probably the most interesting find of the market (the Chinese call them 1,000 Year Old eggs and they’re not birthed pink… they’re dyed- I asked)!

Checkout what we left the market with in the next post called Thai Snacks!
