Hey, Mint Fanatics! Do you want to get to know Thai food and culture even more? Do you have plans to travel to Thailand soon but have some burning questions about the country that you want to have answered first? Then you’re in luck—we have a true-blue Thai local who can guide you through the food and culture and answer whatever questions you’ve got. And that’s none other than our Chef Nikky Phinyawatana herself.
Chef Nikky is launching a four-part series of Nikky Feeding Souls online events that she’s dubbed “Escape to Thailand.” The series is meant to give you a deeper look into Thai culture, a taste of regional Thai cuisine that you’ve probably never tasted before, and be part of Thailand’s most important holiday. And you don’t have to leave your home.
First up: “Welcome to Nikky’s Thailand” on October 7
The first part of this “Escape to Thailand” series is “Welcome to Nikky’s Thailand”—a lively introduction to Thai food and culture that can only be told by someone who grew up in the country.
In this event, Chef Nikky will give a fun overview of what Thailand is all about and what it’s like growing up there. She’ll also answer whatever questions you may have about traveling to the country. Additionally, she’ll show you how to cook a beloved Thai chicken noodle soup recipe.
“Welcome to Nikky’s Thailand” is happening on Wednesday, October 7, 2020. It’s a free event, and you can sign up here: https://bit.ly/3hZYoCl.
