Laura On: My Favorite Recipe Learned in Thailand.
A few years back I attended a cooking school during a trip to Chaing Mai, Thailand. There they taught us how to make this delicious and traditional soup. The cooking school was set in an open-air kitchen, situated on top of a hill surrounded by endless rice paddies. Such a beautiful backdrop for the evening.
The original recipe we used had ingredients that are hard to find here in the U.S., but this soup I discovered from Bon Appetit is a great substitute.
I wouldn’t attempt to tackle this for a weeknight meal; rather I’d do this when I had more time, such as a Saturday afternoon. That is when I am most happy to explore more challenging recipes.
Believe me, I always enjoy quick to fix meals that end up delicious, but I do like to challenge and stretch myself a bit at times.

You can find this delicious chicken khao soi recipe HERE.
Or if cooking isn’t your thing, perhaps remember the name of this delicious soup and search it out on the menu of your favorite Thai restaurant. I’ve learned that the more authentic, the better.
P.S. If you are looking to plan a trip to Chiang Mai I highly recommend this hotel and cooking school.
