We’ve got updates, friends!

Thank you to all those who’ve continued to support us in the midst of a global pandemic. We are grateful and flexing our brains in ways we never even imagined. Our students have been diligently working to create new content, including digital storytelling, virtual Thai courses, and of course Zoom cooking classes — because who isn’t Zoom’d out yet? We are especially thankful to Where Sidewalks End Travel for providing us with new computers to help us keep up with the ever-changing demands of virtual learning. 

In addition to our online offerings, the crew has been recipe testing and selling their homemade tempeh through Farmtastic BKK, an online shop offering organic farm-fresh goods and produce. If you’re in Bangkok and interested in trying more of our vegan goodies, please reach out or place an order directly through Farmtastic.

For our US friends, Christy is crafting up a Southeast Asian snack box featuring all of our favorite Thai and regional confections. Set to be launched in late August, Tuk Tuk Box will deliver curated snack and meal kits straight to your door with proceeds from every box benefiting Courageous Kitchen families. 

Lastly, we’d like to thank our latest sponsor, Rush Order Tees who generously donated some CK logo aprons to our crew. Rush Order has quick turnaround services including direct to garment printing, embroidery, screen printing, and customizable designing. Our process with them was seamless from start to finish and their staff was a pleasure to work with. We love our new aprons and can’t wait for the next batch. They also take custom requests in case you want to don a bright red or purple apron while recipe testing of your own! Visit their website at rushordertees.com to place your orders. 

Again, thank you to all of our supporters  for transitioning with us in our ‘new normal.’ We are privileged to be able to continue our work and press on in times of uncertainty. We hope you are all staying safe and healthy.

For now, find us online and book a virtual class — we can’t wait to cook with you again soon!
