Farang Food and Hill Tribes Cooks !

A collaboration between the Rotary Clubs of Pranakorn ( Bangkok) and Maechan (Chiangrai) resulted in an original activity offered to hill tribes’ students of Suksa Song Kraw Maechan School during the holidays: Learn how to make delicious western food with local ingredients available at the market.
Khun Charoon Sangpreechakul and his wife Anong have owned a restaurant in London for 20 years, before to semi-retire back in Thailand, their home country.
They are now based in Bangkok but cooking good and tasty food from around the world is still their passion.

Willing to help wherever they can, they offered to share their experience and knowledge with children of the hill tribes of Chiangrai during the school holidays.
The cooking courses took place at Insii Thai House, Maechan, in a very relaxed atmosphere.
The students learned to prepare dishes commonly found on restaurants’ menus in Europe, such as cream of asparagus soup, escalope of chicken cordon bleu, crème caramel, beef stew, etc…
Every day at noon, we would invite guests to taste the food prepared by the students and give their opinion. It has been unanimously rated – by Thai as well as farang guests - as “excellent” every time!

Monday 9 th of October was an important day for the students and their cooking teachers.
The whole Maechan Rotary Club had a chance to sample a full banquet menu which the children spent the whole day to prepare.
Real good western food is not easy to find on the hills of Chiangrai but this original cooking activity might give ideas to some of the students in the future … who knows.
