Kosher Thai Cooking

Monday, February 22, 2010

A dozen Hadassah members gathered at the home of Paula Jarnicki in Montgomery on Monday evening to see a Kosher Thai Cooking Demonstration by Jill Abromowitz Gutmann, owner of Kosher Kimchi Catering.  Jill has lived in several Asian countries and was taught how to cook by her host families.  All her supplies for the demonstration were purchased from a local Kroger's. 

Beginning with an appetizer of Thai spring rolls and peanut sauce, Jill showed everyone how easy it is to cook tasty, healthy and exotic meals.  The main course was Pad Thai (noodles with vegetables, tofu and egg) and Vegetable Curry (a vegetarian dish simmered in chicken flavored broth and coconut milk).  For dessert, we all enjoyed mango lassi, a refreshing Indian drink made from frozen mango, yogurt, milk and a dash of cardamom.

Lauren Scharf was the program chair.  Click here to see Jill's recipes.
