      The Experience

      Chef Chuck Valla comes from a long line of Thai cooks and restaurateurs, so for him, whipping up flavorful Thai dishes is a favorite family pastime. In this hands-on cooking class, Chef Chuck will share his family’s secrets for simple yet zesty dishes that bring a little bit of Thailand to your dinner table.

      Chef Chuck will arrive at your doorstep ready to turn your home into a fragrant, bustling Thai kitchen. Cook with him, and learn to create Thai favorites like classic curries that bring the heat, creamy coconut milk-based soups, and the savory, expertly spiced tom yum soup. To bring you into his close circle, Chef Chuck will also share his personal stories growing up in Thailand and deepen your appreciation of the dishes by discussing their ingredients and origins. Chef Chuck’s expert guidance and love of all things Thai will leave you with the skills needed to incorporate Thai flavors into your everyday cooking. This experience will benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
