It’s no secret that Melburnians love to travel the world with their tastebuds, and Thai is one of our favourite cuisines to explore – whether it’s cheap and cheerful eats at Soi 38 or high-end fare at David Thompson’s Long Chim.
If you enjoy cooking your favourite Thai dishes at home as much as you do eating them in a restaurant, then I’ve found the perfect experience for you to try.
Head along to South Wharf’s BangPop to learn the secret to making two of Thailand’s most famous dishes – green papaya salad and pad thai.
