ANOTHER exciting event is set to take place in Stroud this weekend.

“The event is also a chance to pick up some culinary inspiration to take home and use in the kitchen.

"We’re inviting everyone to come on down and enjoy this fantastic demonstration of authentic Thai cooking.

“The events, which will be held on most Sundays leading up to Christmas, will provide the perfect opportunity for our wonderful artisan producers to showcase their products and share their knowledge."

Thai2Go meals are all made using fresh ingredients and authentic family recipes from head chef Jai’s childhood.

This will be the third in a series of live cookery demonstrations throughout November and December in the lead up to Christmas.

The previous two events, by Jack Knight and Fat Toni’s Pizzeria, both drew large crowds.

Future cookery demonstrations are also planned, with Armorel from Armadeli set to guide people on how to put together the perfect cheeseboard on Sunday, December 3, from noon.
