Thai Secret Cooking School is surrounded by our organic garden, neighboring farms and rice paddies.

 
Organic farming practices and a Buddhist farmer  ensure a full life cycle on this land. Beautiful snail eggs incubate on a blade of rice grass.

 

Thai Secret Cooking School is surrounded by our organic garden, neighboring farms and rice paddies.

Pesticides are not used on the farm so the snails are given a free pass until….the rain season ends and the earth dries up. Here are some shells that the farmers have gathered to make fertilizer.

Mhee Clook - หมี่คลุก - Mhee Pan Lap Lae

What I made here today is called Mhee Clook.
Rice vermicelli noodle mixed with fried garlic, soy sauce, coriander and chicken bouillon. You may also add chili power, sugar, lime juice, fish sauce. This is a salty, spicy, sour dish that is a good meal for lunch time.
Another variation is: Mhee Pan Lap Lae a local food, not only eating as a meal but also can be as appetizer.Mhee Pan is Rice vermicelli noodle (Mhee clook) wrapped with rice pastry, the pastry is clear and when wet slightly sticky, and has a good chew, the roll looks like a fresh spring roll.
