Party Recipe: Thai Cooking Lesson

The Ladies Activity Club summer cooking series continued last night with Thai curry hosted by Stacey! She and and her husband had taken cooking lessons during a vacation in Thailand and had returned armed with recipes.

Stacey had Thai beer, olives, spicy hummus and cheese out for us as appetizers and her apartment smelled deliciously of curry. Before we started making our own curry paste, she served us big bowls of really tasty vegetarian red curry that she made the night before with rice:











After our little dinner, it was time to get down to the business of curry making. Stacey had gathered ingredients from markets all over the city. We chopped lemon grass, garlic, shallots, chillies, basil and a some weird root and then combined it with roasted peppercorns and coriander in a mortar and pestle.









The final curry paste smells so good. I need to pick up eggplant, tofu, coconut milk and other ingredients tonight to finish the recipe for dinner!

Yummy. I'm making that tonight, but I doubt it will be as authentic.
