Cooking class by Thailand Consulate General with Thai and Vietnamese ingredients
On Saturday, a cooking class was held in Ho Chi Minh City, bringing together representatives from the consular corps, Thai organizations and enterprises, and Vietnamese influencers. The participants were taught how to cook delicious Thai dishes using a combination of Thai and Vietnamese ingredients. It was a unique opportunity for everyone to come together, learn new recipes, and enjoy the flavors of both cultures.
The Royal Thai Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City, the Thai Trade Center in Ho Chi Minh City, the Tourism Authority of Thailand – Ho Chi Minh City Office, and Thai businesses organized an event to promote Thai food. The event included a cooking class where participants learned to cook Thai staples such as pad Thai, tom kha kai (Thai coconut soup), and crispy shrimp with tamarind sauce. The cooking class was led by culinary expert Torroong Jarungidanan, who traveled from Thailand to share her expertise.

Torroong Jarungidanan is a renowned expert on Thai cuisine and the founder of several famous Thai restaurants in Thailand. She has also published three cookbooks on Thai cuisine. During the cooking class, Jarungidanan used readily available Thai ingredients that can be purchased in Vietnam, along with local products such as rice noodles, sugar, and dried tiny shrimps. This allowed the participants to easily recreate the dishes at home.

“These are the tiny shrimps we use to sprinkle on our pad Thai today. They are roasted on low heat without using any oil,” explained Jarungidanan while showcasing Vietnamese dried shrimps. The objective of the event was not only to promote Thai cuisine but to demonstrate that making Thai dishes at home is relatively straightforward. Thai cuisine has gained significant popularity in Vietnam, with Thai food and ingredients readily available in supermarkets and local markets across the city. Vietnamese people appreciate the similar tastes of Thai and Vietnamese cuisines, such as sweetness, sourness, and saltiness.
