Thai House Cookery School,
Info : Thai House Cookery School
The Thai House cooking school, located on the klongs (canals), is one of our favourite food experiences in Bangkok. It's a great place to learn to cook Thai food whilst experiencing traditional life along the klong.
To gain a full appreciation of the essence of Thai cuisine, a typical course at The Thai House begins with an introduction to the kitchen lay-out, the utensils, the cooking techniques, Thai food names, the selection of ingredients and basic food groups. You discover how to blend fresh herbs and spices using traditional utensils such as the mortar, pestle and the coconut grinder. You also learn about the great variety of fresh vegetables that Thailand has, some of which you are able to pick fresh from the garden. The main topics covered in the course are soups, salads, curry pastes and curried stir-fried dishes, decorative fruit and vegetable carvings and desserts.
For the 2 and 3-day courses an excursion to the local open-air market is part of the total learning experience so you'll also learn how the fresh ingredients are selected.
The cooking classes are held in an outdoor classroom in the midst of an orchard of mango, banana, papaya and coconut trees, and a kitchen garden of fresh herbs and spices used in the recipes. Lessons feature brief lectures, the preparation of ingredients, hands-on cooking demonstrations and time for discussion and enjoying the fruits of success are conducted in an open air kitchen.
We arrived back in the UK at 7.00 this morning and I couldn’t wait to thank you for organising such a fabulous holiday for us! Everything went so smoothly and we were really impressed with the quality and style of the hotels you chose for us, the convenient locations, and the local services - absolutely First Class! We had some wonderful food, did some great activities and we particularly enjoyed the Elephant Day which was something we shall remember for the rest of our lives. Also we really enjoyed the trip to the River Kwai and the amazing River Kwai Resotel. I shall certainly recommend your company to anyone who is considering a holiday in South East Asia – thank you again!
