Need help with kids Thai cooking class menu

yamalam | Jun 5, 2009 10:40 PM

Hello all,

I am volunteering to "teach" a beginner's Thai cooking class for high school girls next week and could use some help putting together a menu. There are 14 of us, and my experience is that most Thai noodle dishes work better when made in individual quanitites, so I'm shying away from pad thai, pad see u and drunken noodles, etc. Do you agree, or can you think of any way to adapt for larger portions? We don't have giant woks, just regular skillets and old electric stovetops that probably can't get super hot. We'll be splitting the kids into groups, but each group will still be preparing enough for all 14.

Other than noodles, I'm thinking of
-Green Papaya salad
-Chicken satay
-Spring Rolls
-Peanut Sauce
-Green or red curry with chicken and tofu (not sure if this will be too exotic)

Thanks for your help hounds!
