Take a leisurely stroll upon the back of a rocking Thai elephant, lurching and rolling like a crazy drunken fairground ride, pluck ripe rambutan as you pass beneath the boughs. But hang on tight as these majestic old gentlemen of the forests negotiate the slippery, rock-strewn streams, hurrying onwards towards the cool dark rainforests of Koh Phangan Paradise Island.

7 Thai Cooking School

My Work and Me
My Work and Me
As so many visitors love to eat Thai food, it’s unsurprising that many would want to learn Thai cooking too.  Thai cooking classes range from one day fun courses to extensive chef training programs, both of which can be equally fun and informative.  

Most Thai cooking classes begin with a tour of a local market to see where everyday Thai’s purchase the many exotic ingredients that are used in Thai cooking.  A good tour leader from a reputable Thai cooking school will not only explain the ingredients to you, he or she will also explain what substitute ingredients you can find in your home grocery store.  

Once back at the cooking school, instructors will demonstrate the process of preparing each course, after which students will try Thai cooking on their own while the instructor observes.  Students typically get to choose up to five dishes and normally cook the entire meal themselves; however, this varies somewhat from school to school as many do not require you to pound your own chili paste, a mandatory ingredient for many Thai dishes, including curries.

  After cooking in the morning, your meals will be served to you for lunch, and if you’ve done your work well, you should have a large and fulfilling meal. Students at most Thai cooking schools get to keep their recipe books and souvenir aprons; many Thai cooking schools also have take-home packages of Thai spices and curry paste.

note: some Thai cooking schools will allow you to invite family and friends to meet you for lunch, as the amount of food you prepare is generally too much for one person to consume!
