Cook Your Happiness!
June 27 @ 5:45 pm EDT
A favorite song makes you want to dance and sing along. A favorite book takes your imagination to places. A favorite image hypnotizes your mind. These are small things that bring on different sensations, and they are attainable pleasures you can give to yourself. But, do you ever think of creating intense excitement for your mouth’s palette?
An award-winning film transports you into another reality; the visuals are eye-candy; the sound effects are ear-candy; your senses, aroused by these combinations, you imagine the aroma or even flavor!
When happiness comes in the form of taste, it’s like a symphony you bring to your palette. The dynamic combinations of varying flavors will elevate you to a new dimension. And THAT will be the taste that gives a long-lasting impression you will remember and want to replicate again and again.
Our palette is sophisticated; it can experience eight distinct flavors: sweet, salty, spicy, sour, neutral, umami, bitter, and mun! The word “mun” has a deep translation in Thai cuisine; it doesn’t just define ingredients, flavor, texture, but an emotion! Similar to the inertia sensation you feel when eating popcorn or potato chips—you can’t stop after one bite! However, balancing the eight flavors is indeed an art form that requires years of training to reach mastery.
Janejira is your kitchen translator—an ambassador of Thai flavors. At Janejira’s Kitchen, you do not just cook a meal, but you embark on a new journey to an unknown space. Enable yourself with life-changing yet easy-to-follow recipes. She will show you step-by-step how to get the best foundation you can ever imagine. You do not need to book a flight to Thailand. During class, you go on a (virtual) mini journey. Part of the magic is in the meal kit, which includes homegrown organic herbs not found locally in State College, PA. It is the cheapest ticket to the Far East. You’ll walk out with new knowledge, skills, and wealth for your health. Learn and understand the meaning of authentic Thai cuisine. Unless all eight flavors are executed—all at once—that is the only time your palette can reach complete ecstasy.
Cook your happiness; for your mouth, mind, body, and spirit. Excite your taste buds with Janejira’s Kitchen!
