This cooking class will be taught by Chef Anna and her daughter Vanda. We will learn to make Thai Spring Rolls and variations of Pad Thai. This is a 2 hour class. It is not often that we are able to have an actual hands-on class where we will actually prepare and eat what we cook!

To learn more about the restaurant, go to Here's a little more about our teachers:

Chef Anna, a self-taught chef, hails from the city of Lampang in the heart of northern Thailand and grew up in a family that primarily cooked with home- and locally-grown fruits and vegetables. Since Ayara Thai’s opening day, head chef Anna remains a leader in the kitchen and continues her family tradition by using home-grown herbs in the restaurant’s dishes. Reflecting both the dishes she ate in the past, as well as her family’s values in sustainable dining, she ensures that dishes are prepared with only the freshest ingredients that the season has to offer.

The family traditions have continued and developed into the third generation, through their daughter Vanda. Living and working in Thailand for four years has allowed Vanda to revive old family recipes, while travelling through the nation’s different regions has allowed her to discover new tastes and inspirations. After cooking with relatives and eating her way through the streets and countrysides, it is these old recipes and new flavors that Vanda brings back to share at Ayara Thai.

The Asapahu family of Ayara Thai have been cooking home-cooked Thai food for over three-generations. They are pleased to offer authentic Thai dishes prepared from scratch with the freshest ingredients to ensure the most genuine flavors.
