Homestead- Thai cooking school - the best dinner we have ever had

Today was probably one of the best days we have had. We spent the day with elephants, my camera died about 5 min after arriving, so we will have to wait until tomorrow for the pictures to be uploaded on their website.

The cooking school is located about 30 min out side of the city, so we needed to wait to be taken up to the school. We were picked up by Paul, who told us he would be our personal guide the entire time we were staying at the school. He said my wish was his command and he would take us anywhere we wanted to go.
Paul asked John what he liked to drink and if he had tried thai whisky. The next thing we know we are stopping at a Thai open market. He told us we had 10 min to look around and he disappeared into the market. When he returned he brought us some meatballs on a stick and had a bottle of Thai whiskey and Coke.
We continued traveling through the Northern Thai country side until we arrived at a gated community. We finally arrive at an amazing Thai Manson. He tells us this is the chefs house and we will be staying here with him like family. The house is amazing and I will post more about it tomorrow. We are told to be down stairs at 7:15 for dinner.

As we walk down stairs we see the dinning room table set for two, and the bottle of whiskey and coke sitting on the table. Paul talked to us for a little bit then disappeared to the kitchen. He emerged with our first course. Yummy sons full of flavor and deliciousness. John and I were in heaven. He then brought out each of our 6 dishes, explaining the ingredients.

I am having a hard time putting the experience into words because we were just blow away by everything. Paul is not only our personal guide, but our personal chief as well.
Here they are, each one delicious and unique in their own way.
