Enjoy a unique experience! Thai cookery lessons for individuals and groups, or, an evening with friends with a difference. Lessons are run by an experienced Thai chef and suitable for all levels.
The dishes you will learn to cook
A bespoke experience that begins with a consultation to ensure the lesson meets your needs, tastes and preferences. Choose 2-3 dishes you would like to learn from my menu selections. Alternatively, you may request to learn a particular dish which is not listed. Just ask!
The beauty of Thai cooking is that it is extremely flexible. Once the essence of a dish is understood, you can personalise it to suit your own taste. There are many dishes available including Thai curry which is a “signature” dish of Thailand. You will learn how to make it from scratch which means you can tailor it to suit your taste. Making curry paste from fresh ingredients is easy (once you know how!) and is much more interesting than cooking from a jar.
About the classes – approach and style
My aim is to ensure you gain real Thai cooking skills. Classes are “hands on” and practical. By the end of the class you will be able to prepare and cook your chosen dishes at home. Depending on the dishes chosen, classes last around 2-2.5 hours and are relaxed and fun, reflecting the Thai approach to life.
Your class starts with an introduction to the ingredients, where to source them, and the key flavours in Thai cooking – sweet, sour, salty and spicy. Through an ‘active tasting’ approach, you will learn how to create these flavours and, importantly, how to balance them.
At the end of the class you will have a set of recipes and some delicious dishes to share with family or friends (enough for a meal). Ingredients used are top quality and freshly sourced from local Thai and Oriental suppliers.
There is no need to have any previous cooking experience, just a love of food and a willingness to experiment!
