Katie's Cucina

Thai Kitchen House Party

A few week’s back I was selected to host a Thai Kitchen House Party (some of you may have already known that if you follow me on twitter). I’ve used Thai Kitchen products quite a few times, and was so excited to see a party like this being offered, so I instantly applied, and was very happy when I found out that I was selected to throw this house party. I knew that a majority of my friends had never cooked Thai food at home, and some have never even consumed it! I knew it would be a great product to represent and introduce to my friends. 
I am declaring this week as Thai Week at Katie’s Cucina. 
I’ll provide you with all of the recipes I made at my Thai kitchen party PLUS one lucky winner will receive a Thai Kitchen reusable grocery bag with a recipe pamphlet and coupons! One winner will be selected at random on Friday, October 1st at 12:00pm EST. You will have up to three chances to enter; here’s how:
1. Become an active follower on my blog 
 (leave a comment under this post letting me know that your a new follower).
2. If your already are an active follower of my blog leave a comment below. 
3. Follow me on twitter (leave a comment below/if you already follow tell me).
4. “Like” my Facebook Page (leave a comment below/if you already follow tell me).

Here are just a few of the products sent to me for the Thai Kitchen party (at the time of the picture I had already used 2 cans of Coconut Milk). 
On top of all the great product Thai Kitchen sent me they also sent place-mats, napkins, and chop sticks (along with the goodie bags handed out at the end). 
Here is a picture of our pool table converted into a 12-top dinning table; set and ready for guest! 
 
Some of our friends enjoying there food! 
I must admit that I really enjoyed planning the menu for this event. I knew the sky {was kind of} the limit with this party. The Thai Kitchen website gives so many great recipes and examples of way to cook dishes that I honestly had a difficult time limiting myself to just a few dishes! All-in-all I would say that the Chicken Satay Skewers, Chicken Pad Thai, and Thai Fried Rice were among the favorites. 
We had 12 friends and 3 children who attended the party (not including my husband and myself), and everyone loved the easy recipes and readily available ingredients used to make these dishes. Out of our 12 friends; five had consumed Thai food at a restaurant before and out of those five only one had cooked Thai food at home. All five friends had agreed that they would definitely be making a Thai Kitchen recipe at home and having “Family Thai Nights”. The other seven had never had Thai food at a restaurant nor at home, and they all really enjoyed the diverse flavors that Thai food has to offer. All of them talked about making the Chicken Pad Thai at home now knowing that its a simple and quick recipe to cook on a busy work night!

On a side note: two of my friends in real life came to my house party and are also bloggers. Make sure you check out: Anngela & Ashley‘s blogs!

Here is what our menu consisted of (recipes to come later this week): 
Thai Iced Tea (A twist on a Southern classic)
Chicken Satay Skewers with Peanut & Sweet Chili Sauces
(messy to make, but delicious to eat)
Red Curry with Shrimp & Vegetables served with Jasmine Rice
Thai Fried Rice (*Vegetarian Option)
Cold Peanut Noodle Salad (*Vegetarian Option)
The infamous Chicken Pad Thai
… And for dessert:

Coconut Ginger Ice Cream was churned a few days prior to the event
Chocolate Coconut Cake (complimented very well with the ice cream)! 
I hope everyone will enjoy Thai week at Katie’s Cucina and have your own Family Thai Night at home! Remember, to enter the contest!!!

    I'm already a follower. :) I love Thai food, and have tried making it a couple times, but not nearly enough. I think winning the Thai Kitchen giveaway would help with that! ;)
