Classes at the Silom Cooking School in Bangkok are planned around the climate of Thailand with most taking place in the morning when it is cooler and best suited to shopping, food preparation and cooking. The markets of Bangkok open early and are a great way to begin a discovery of Thai cuisine. The Silom provides an expert guide to assist every step of the way; identifying and explaining the herbs, spices, fruits, vegetables and other produce on offer; your guide is also an excellent teacher of the fine art of bargaining, Thai-style!
Then it’s down to the preparation and cooking, with students taught to cook complete dishes from scratch, with traditional utensils and techniques. An essential in any Thai kitchen is the curry paste, learning to do this well is key to authentic flavours in the dishes. Every aspect of Thai cooking is explored so that when your class is over, you take away the skills to create authentic Thai cuisine at home.
The hands-on experience is highly rewarding and although students are creating the dishes themselves, Instructors are on hand at all times to assist, explain and advise where required. All Instructors at the Silom Thai Cooking School are certified and by a recognised Thai Culinary School and have professional cooking or teaching experience. They are also extremely patient and friendly.
“You’ll get a feel for real Thai culture as you experience its rich colours, unique flavours and smells.”
