I spent the day at Chiang Mai Batik Painting School with Ann, the teacher, at her home.
She served me some snack/dessert cakes she had gotten at her daughter’s school.
They were like miniature crepes, stuffed with a filling like you’d find in eclairs, and rolled like burritos. The Thai name sounded “like Tokyo,” she said. (Don’t ask me about pronunciation, however…when I tried to tell my Thai massage friends about it later, I said “Tokyo” several times, trying different high-low-middle-rising-falling tones in combination, before they finally figured out what the heck I was talking about!)
If you have free time in Chiang Mai or are interested in batik, get in touch with Ann. She offers beginning and advanced classes.
