Cooking Class: Thai Drunken Noodles

Drunken noodles — or pad kee mao — is a popular Thai noodle dish, but despite its name, there is no alcohol involved in the cooking process. The noodles got their nickname because they are so spicy, they require the addition of an ice-cold drink to help cool diners down while they eat. 

If you want to experience the joy of spicy drunken noodles for yourself, this cooking class with Chef Cregg is the perfect place to start. He will teach you how to make this dish in the traditional style, starting with a base of wok-fried rice noodles. Add fresh spices, vegetables, chicken and egg to complete the dish.

Our cooking classes are designed to be social events that do not require any previous experience. Guests are welcome to purchase beer to enjoy during the class.

Thank you Chef Cregg for a wonderful team building cooking class. We were early to the class as parking was surprisingly easy, but Chef was ready for us. The class was exciting, very informative and incredibly delicious. All 11 of us got plenty of hands on cooking time, tons of tips, knife safety skills and Chef Cregg worked hard at increasing our perception of various ingredients (fresh herbs, dried mushrooms etc). The meal at the end was exquisite. We were very satisfied! 5 stars, would take the class again!

Chef Cregg is the real deal. He has a strong background as a chef and he’s a great teacher. It’s rare to find both! His space has a cool warehouse conversion-type vibe. The equipment we used was pretty basic, which makes it more likely that we’ll be able to replicate the techniques at home. With that said, this was a busy lesson with lessons learned around every corner. Definitely need to bring some energy to get the most out of it.

We joined Chef Cregg for an advanced class although we are beginners. Chef adapted and took the time to first re-explained a bunch of basics such as knives holding and slicing (vegetables, meat, etc). Everything was setup in advance (materials, ingredients) so we can focus on the prep and cooking and we had 1 station each with plenty of space. Chef would show us the expectations, teaches us techniques (ex: how to use the different robots and tools) and I loved that he let us do everything. My BF and I really enjoyed the experience, the food turned out great and we had leftovers :P Highly recommend Chef Cregg
