Learn curry (but hurry!)

(c)2007 AEC ** ALL rights reservedBack in May, I talked about the Thai cooking classes offered by Kasma Loha-unchit in her Oakland home, and mentioned that “Kasma’s classes, especially the beginning series, are perennially booked”. But if you get a wiggle on, you might be able to score a place in her 2008 classes, which were announced today.

Seven sets of the four-class Beginning series, which costs $170, will be offered next spring:

March: Mondays, March 3, 10, 17 & 24
Tuesdays, March 4, 11, 18 & 25
Wednesdays, March 5, 12, 19 & 26

April: Mondays, March 31 & April 7, 14 & 21

May: Tuesdays, May 6, 13, 20 & 27
Thursdays May 8, 15, 22 & 29

June: Mondays, June 2, 9, 16 & 23

There’s more information, including menus, online at Kasma’s site, although the 2008 dates are not yet listed. You can send a request to hold your space to kasma[at]earthlink[dot]net; Kasma’s husband Michael recommends that you send along second- and third-choice series the first time around, as classes really do fill up quickly.

Good luck!

Hi, Anita! Another “advanced” Kasma fan here…I second the recommendation to all. Her classes are amazing. She is truly a local treasure.

And things do move on the waiting list. When I first started and signed up for the beginning class, they were all sold out. But spots did open up, and I was able to get in that season (although not for the exact dates I had originally wanted). Well worth waiting for!

Thanks Anita! I’ve been looking forward to these classes for quite some time now. Just snagged a spot in the beginning class for March.

Thanks for this entry – I would had never found this otherwise. Purchased cooking classes for our friend A.s 40th – she is super excited! Thanks again!

[...] At this very moment, I’m on my way to Oakland for the last session in my third series of advanced classes with Thai cooking expert Kasma Loha-unchit, the award-winning author of It Rains Fishes and Dancing Shrimp. Since it takes a year or more to complete the prerequisite classes — and chances are good you’ve heard me rave about Kasma before — I won’t torture you with the details of the truly delicious food we’re making …although you’re welcome to peek at the photos on Flickr, or check out my last class recap of Series B.
