Thai cooking classes in Bangkok

  • Posted onJune 13th, 2014


Thai food is amazing, maybe the greatest cuisine in the world and so it’s natural that many of us soon become fascinated with Thai cuisine, missing the colors, aromas, and taste (of course), when we go back home.

One of the best ways to indulge in Thai culture and get to take away a piece of it with you is to take a Thai cooking class during you time in Bangkok. The city has several great cooking schools with half day courses and full on chef academies. Why not learn a new set of culinary skills and recipes that will wow friends back home.


Blue Elephant Cooking School

One of Bangkok’s most popular fine dining restaurants, The Blue Elephant also has a pretty fine cooking school, two schools in fact, one at its Bangkok Restaurant on South Sathorn Road, and another at its Phuket venue.

The class rooms/kitchens are of the highest quality, fully equipped with everything you will need. The  day school  starts with a trip to a local food market to purchase all the necessary ingredients (teaching you what to look for and a few other fresh produce shopping tricks), followed by in-depth teaching, where you’ll learn to cook a number of authentic Thai dishes, and get to taste them after!


Baipai Thai Cooking School

The Baipai cooking school on Soi Naksuwan (Nonsee Road), promise they can teach anyone how to cook popular Thai dishes, with some home-style learning and a somewhat fun and unique approach.

Being a dedicated school rather than part of a restaurant or hotel, the Baipai course takes a more personal and flexible in approach, unlike what you will experience at most other cooking schools, helping you to learn skills and techniques you can use to cook and create a number of Thai and Asian dishes.


Amita Thai Cooking Class

By the banks of the Chao Phraya River, the Amita Thai Cooking classes have heavy emphasis on Thai culture, with courses said to include a lot of history and lifestyle education as well as teaching lots of cooking techniques and the pleasures of Thai cuisine.

The courses are very much hands-on and there are several dishes which they teach, including Kang Keaw Wan Gai (Green Curry Chicken in Coconut Milk), Phad Thai (Stir fried soft rice noodles with prawns and tamarind sauce) and Tom Yum Gung (hot and sour soup with prawns).


Bangkok Thai Cooking Academy

One of the best value cooking schools in Bangkok, the Bangkok Thai Cooking Academy offers a number of different courses, from one-day classes, up to full on Chef courses set over a number of months.

The day classes promise to teach you 5 dishes per day with a different set of dishes for each day of the week – meaning you can return several times to top up you culinary skills. They also offer vegetarian and vegan classes as well as one-on-one lessons with their English speaking tutors.
