KAMA IN THE KITCHEN - Thai Sweets Cooking Class

KAMA in the Kitchen: Thai Desserts with Bess: Feeling down now that summer is coming to a close? Looking for something to fulfill your sweet tooth on a fall night? Look no further than KAMA DC’s next cooking class, introducing Thai Sweets with Bess!  Bess was born and raised in Thailand, but really embraced cooking while living in China to keep the comforts of home alive. Bess moved to the US in 2018 and is a graphic designer. Look forward to a night learning to make Bua Loy, a traditional recipe from Pandan, Thailand that is similar to bubble tea, pumpkin rice balls, and purple sweet potato rice balls!

This class is in partnership with KAMA DC, an organization that brings together diverse groups of people and immigrants to learn from one another in fun, interactive classes geared toward creating inclusive communities.
