Thai Cooking in Four-Courses


with Phung & Dan Magie

Calendar Mar 20, 2020 at 6 pm

A common greeting in Thailand is "Gin khao yung" meaning "Have you eaten yet?" And as soon as one meal is done, people start thinking of preparing the next! Like most cultures, we can learn a lot about Thailand through the way Thai food is prepared and shared with family and friends. Join Phung and Dan from "Phung's Pantry" as they demonstrate cooking a four-course Thai meal including an appetizer, soup, main dish and dessert. You will enjoy a tasting of each course, Thai cultural anecdotes and learn how to “go to market” in Kansas to recreate their tasty dishes at home.

She is joined by her husband, P’Dan Magie, communication and business manager, who lived and worked in Thailand for 17 years after being raised in rural Kansas. Today they live and run Phung's Pantry from their home in Ellsworth.
