Ravenous Fox is a local company in North Shields owned by Graeme Fox, and during lockdown they have worked with a number of companies delivering fun cooking sessions via zoom, helping people create food from around the world that can be enjoyed at home.
After receiving a list of recipes to choose from, the group opted for a Thai dish called Pad Ga Prao, a popular Thai Street food dish consisting of stir-fried meat mixed with Thia basil.
With all ingredients laid out ready for the cooking to commence, staff began frying, stirring and seasoning, following the instructions of business owner Graeme as best they could.
Although the session was done via zoom, the cooking class really brought the team together and provided a bit of an insight into eachothers home lives.
Ready, Steady, Cook!
Although it became apparent that some were more comfortable in the kitchen than others, everyone managed to produce a delicious Thai dish which they could then share with friends and family members.
The whole experience was brilliant! Not only did it provide an entertaining way to bring everyone together, but the team learned about new ingredients and cooking techniques.
