The January program will be centered on laap dishes and we’ll be hosting a laap- oriented masterclass series. The word laap, the focus of our New Year theme, sounds like the Thai word for good luck – to bring unexpected gains, profits and prosperity.

Laap is a top dish on menus in Thai restaurants abroad. Unfortunately, laap has been diminished by oversimplified descriptions, by bland seasonings, and even by an incorrect English transcription, as “larb”. 

Laap, a dish traditionally cooked and consumed by men, is an integral part of the village social fabric, commonly served at ceremonies and celebrations, and presented to important guests. The enormous effort required to manually prepare laap for a community ceremony is orchestrated by skilled, talented individuals with years of experience.

When you complete the laap masterclass series, you’ll be fluent in cooking dishes from both the Northern and Northeastern regions of the country! The Thaifoodmaster laap masterclasses will cover 20 types of laap dishes, in addition to offering ten detailed recipes. As well, the masterclasses will feature 15 dried spices and introduce you to some 30 medicinal herbs.
