Full description
Spice things up and experience Thai culture through its vibrant culinary scene. After meeting at Blue Elephant, a renowned Bangkok establishment recognized by the Michelin Guide, you’ll head out to the marketplace to pick up supplies for the day (in the case of the morning class), or get straight to business in the afternoon class.  Your day begins with a theory class, in which your passionate instructor will explain the ingredients and techniques behind Thai cooking, complete with a thorough demonstration of the recipes you’ll be making. After the theory portion, don your apron and head to your station, complete with all the ingredients you’ll need, utensils, a burner, and a wok.  With the guidance of acclaimed chefs, prepare your 4- or 5-course meal to perfection. Afterwards, savor the food you’ve prepared in the historic, century-old restaurant. To cap things off, you’ll take home a culinary certificate, as well as recipes for all the dishes you’ve created so you can recreate the gems of Thai cuisine at home.

It was a great learning class!! I had managed to learn and prepare recipes for tom kha, massaman curry and other dishes.We also was given goodies at the end of the class which was two different pastes (which is easier when cooking) .. so its a thumbs up for me

That was a beautiful afternoon at the Blue Elephant. I would not have thought that I could cook so well - but it was explained to me in a very understandable and loving way. We were guided through the preparation and preparation with all the details by an incredibly personable chef. The food was super delicious - the choice of dishes is perfect and you honestly can't go wrong. Afterwards you eat your own creations with the other participants in the restaurant below. Everything here is super clean and everyone is super friendly... and my "Cashew Chicken" was a straight A, I'd say. Not cheap but still a clear recommendation. This is the Blue Elephant Restaurant, after all. Thanks very much! We will never forget that!

Great food an instructor. Went to market and her food knowledge was amazing, answered all my questions. The pace was perfect, and after minor adjustments, spice levels were toned down for me. Instructor also gave alternative ingredients in case they were not to be found in the states. Had more than enough leftovers for a great dinner the next day. It is well worth it.
