The Courageous Kitchen Project
โครงการครัวภูมิใจ (krua – poom – jai)
The Courageous Kitchen provides cooking classes for disadvantaged kids and teens. The classes aim to teach the students aged 6-15 to build self confidence, master cooking techniques, and the importance of good nutrition.
Many classes will be led by Christy Innouvong, a Thai-Laotion American who’s returned to Thailand to rediscover her culinary roots, teach English, and spend her spare time volunteering. Courageous Kitchen recipes will be shared on BKKFatty.com and ongoing classes will also feature participation from a long list of volunteer instructors and guest chefs.
