Nearby the Surasak Sky train station, the Blue Elephant Cooking School is located in an incredible old mansion where authenticity is of paramount importance and the culinary wonders of Royal Thai Cuisine are explored. With fully equipped facilities, local markets offering an abundance of fresh, local produce and a team of instructors respected by all, the Blue Elephant is a favourite of those who love Thai food.
The Blue Elephant Cooking School is not only one of the few that teaches Royal Thai cuisine, it is also renowned for the quality and credentials of the instructors. All Blue Elephant Chefs have lived and trained in Thailand and are hired by the Blue Elephant for their vocational abilities and innate creativity.
“It is the objective of every chef to maintain the Royal Thai culinary traditions, preparations and presentations in their restaurant.”
The classes at the Blue Elephant will present a variety of dishes to shop for, prepare, cook and enjoy, including:
– Chiang Mai soup
– Laab Kai (chicken flavoured with lemongrass, lime leaves and fish sauce)
– Massaman Kae (lamb curry, lightly spicy)
– Coconut Flan
There are many courses to choose from but typically, upon arrival, you will be greeted in true Thai style and offered a refreshing herbal drink before having the opportunity to chat about the plans for the hours ahead. A ride on the Sky Train follows as you journey to the market to shop for an array of colourful Thai fruits, vegetables and dazzling, fragrant, multicoloured spices. When you return to the culinary school, an instructor will present a cookery demonstration of the dishes that you will be preparing.
Students go to their own well-equipped work areas and are assisted by instructors to ensure you get a clear understanding and can take away valuable skills. Once you have prepared the four dishes, you will be able to enjoy a wonderful meal in the delightful restaurant; sampling your own cooking as well as additional Thai dishes.
All levels of Thai cooking experience are catered for at the Blue Elephant Cooking School; from novice to expert. Aside from the skills you will be able to use forever, you will receive a Blue Elephant Cooking Class Certificate, basket of Thai herbal tea and packets of curry paste as well as a souvenir apron.
