Full description
Try your hand at making four popular Thai dishes, and delight in the vibrant flavours. Explore the biggest food market in Bangkok, Khlong Toei, and shop for fresh ingredients. Head to the air-conditioned cooking school afterwards in your small group, receive instructions, and then cook and taste the meals you produce 100% by yourself. Meet at exit 1 of the Queen Sikrit National Convention Centre MRT station. Discover the sprawling market of Khlong Toei on a guided tour, then take a tuk-tuk to the cookery school. Learn about exotic Thai ingredients, including vegetables, rice, herbs, and spices, as well as the preparation of coconut milk and curry paste. Spend two hours making four delicious dishes, and savor each one individually while they're still hot and fresh. Two of the dishes every day are Stir-Fried Noodles with Shrimp (Pad-Thai) and Mango Sticky Rice for dessert. Depending on the day you go, starter options include Spicy Lemongrass Salad (Yum Ta-Krai), Hot and Sour Soup with Shrimp (Tom Yun Goong), Spicy Coconut Soup with Chicken (Tom Kha Gai), and Thai Papaya Salad (Som Tum). Main course options include Green Curry, Red Curry, Panang Curry, and Massaman Curry, all made with chicken. Get your hands dirty by making the curry paste from scratch, and take home all recipes with you so you can recreate the gastronomic experience again in the future.

    Great value for money! We cooked and ate 4 dishes. The cooking class does not include beverages other than water. The dishes change depending on the day of the week so check in advance with the cooking school for their weekly menu before booking (we really wanted to learn how to make red curry). I also recommend being very careful with the amount of spices you use while cooking. The instructors are quite generous with the amounts they suggest, and if you don't like eating spicy - you may suffer!

    Great, but.....

    I loved the food, and the place was very nice on the inside. The guide was friendly enough. However, there is a meet up point at a train station. You receive directions on how to get there. We got to the train station as directed. However we were on the wrong end. We got there at 4:30 1 hour in advance. I noticed no one had come who was from a tour and called the number I was given in the email. I called the what’s app and the emergency number. No one answered. I had a Thai SIM card so a Thai number was popping up. I called a total of 15x. Still no answer. Thanks to a rand good soul on the street we found the tour within 1 minute of them leaving. I told the guide we were lost and called number a bunch of times to no answer. He just shrugged shoulders and walked away. Good experience overall. However, communication and customer service was bad.

    All of the meals were made with fresh ingredients and our own hands!! I never knew how quick making Thai food could be. Even after the tour the company sent all of the recipes to our emails so we can take what we learned home with us. It was a very smooth and efficient operation. At no time were we not preparing or cooking or eating. The next time I come to Bangkok I will definitely do this tour again, just for refresher!
