Pad Thai is one of the most popular dishes in Thailand. Wherever there is street food, there is pad thai, and it's on most restaurant menus too! There can only be one reason... it's so darn delicious! Bonus for the home chef, it doesn't take a lot of prep to make this awesome dish.
The Chef will teach you how to use simple ingredients to create dazzling flavors. It’s safe to say that making homemade Pad Thai could be life changing.
