This tour starts and ends in Sukhothai
Whether you have a sweet tooth or not, you’ll enjoy this lovely dessert making class. Explore three types of Sukhothai traditional desserts rarely seen these days. These desserts have names with auspicious meanings, and are presented in traditional Thai auspicious ceremonies. They also convey local philosophy and beliefs. Khanom Si Tuay is common at wedding receptions, and is a symbol of a strong and eternal love. It combines lemon basil seeds, black sticky rice, popped rice, and Lod Chong (sweet worm-shape flour). Sangkaya Chao Na, translated to farmer’s custard, follows an ancient Sukhothai custard recipe. You won’t be making these desserts from a scratch. Khanom Kadaek Nga is made with pounded sticky rice balls mixed with sesame seeds. This dessert is an offering in the Rice Goddess worshipping ritual. Rather, you will be a helper of your host who demonstrates a few steps of how to make them. They are so delicious you cannot stop eating them!
