One of the most famous things about Thailand is the food, fresh and spicy dishes rich in flavor. We thought it would be a very good way to experience country and culture by taking a class in Thai cooking.
We found a cooking school in Silom, Bangkok, not too far from our hotel, Silom Thai Cooking School and booked our class through email.
The school emailed a meeting point close to a local market, where we met our cooking instructor along with 8 other students, each class consists of 10 students.
We then went to the market and our instructor, chef Tang, introduced the group to local ingredients used for most dishes, as tamarind, galangal ginger, lemongrass, kaffir lime, coconut, holy basil and a variety of different chillies and herbs.
Equipped with a small basket, each student carries his/her goods back to close by Silom Thai Cooking School.
The course continuous with preparing a 5 course thai meal - the best part though, after each dish is cooked you got to sit down and eat it :-)
We’ve spent about 5 hours at Silom Thai Cooking School, learning how to prepare authentic Thai food from scratch and enjoyed eating what we were taught to produce.
We paid 1,000.00 Baht each, money well spent - it was a great experience, we loved it!
