Thai Cooking Class YUM!

Not your average cooking school, we’re hosted by clebrity chef Chris Maher who shows us the ropes of Thai Cooking! Nikki dives in on a Beef Dish (that’s right….meat!) and a Banana Dessert (which she’s allegic to). Go figure!
Situated on Blackstone Ranch in Beautiful Taos, NM the Cooking Studio Taos is one of a kind. They source their beef, herbs, fruit, and veggies directly from the ranch. Talk about LOCAL! All in all it’s a great class and a fun video. Join us and hopefully we can all learn something about how to whip up some yummy Thai food. Gone With the Wynns say: Bon Appetit!
