Join me in my home kitchen in Bangkok, as I teach you how to make a Laab from the Northeast of Thailand. Laab is a classic Thai dish with regional variations, the Isaan version being popular all over the world and found in many Thai restaurants. I base my recipe on years of research (eating) and methods taught to me by family and other cooks alike. During the class, I will teach you about the history of the dish, and how to prepare each ingredient to create the most delicious Laab you’ve tasted (probably).

"My name is Dylan, and I’m a half-Thai, half-American chef living in Bangkok. I began cooking Thai food with my Dad and his sisters as a kid, but it was around ten years ago that I began to study it and understand it, making it an integral part of my life. In 2016, I started a pop-up restaurant in my hometown of Orlando, Florida, called Bangrak Thai Street Kitchen, focused on serving Thai dishes that I felt were misrepresented or unknown in the US. The business allowed me to travel back and forth to Thailand frequently, until this past year, when I decided to close up and move to Bangkok to immerse myself in the culinary culture and continue my Thai food education.
Here, I teach private cooking classes and workshops out of my home, called HAAWM, to both tourists and locals alike, for all skill levels. My goal is to share my knowledge of Thai cuisine with others, while also learning more about it myself – through recipes, stories, and eating."
