Why Taking a Cooking Class in Bangkok is a Must-Do
Thailand’s capital is a mixing pot filled with opulent malls and sacred temples. However, it can be argued that the vibrant street life is what makes Bangkok stand out from every city. Weave your way through the Chao Phraya river, and in every corner you will find that Bangkok’s streets are filled with food. Explore the food that makes Bangkok so special with our cooking classes that will teach you how to make authentic Thai food. Most of our classes start off with a local market visit where you will have the opportunity to pick out fresh ingredients to use in your cooking. Some of our cooking classes even involve you visiting a local farm and picking out organic ingredients there. We also offer classes with vegan options! Whatever cooking class you choose, you are sure to finish the class with a smile and will have acquired Thai cooking skills to take back home.

"Great instructive and interactive experience - delicious food!"
We loved the detailed and passionate explanation by our master-chef! We were able to engage with knives and woks to produce our own individual dishes, each of us having the chance to spice things up to our desired level of enjoyment. We were able to accommodate a few last minute requests and ended up enjoying our self-prepared lunch all together on the second floor! I am most happy to recommend this experience!

"Fun! and informative!"
The guides and chefs were patient and did a lot of explaining of how Thai flavors come together - and stepped in whenever any of the guests had trouble with the techniques.

"If you like Thai food don’t miss this opportunity"
Highly recommend the Bangkok Thai Cooking Academy. You start out at a wet market far from the tourist area, learn about ingredients, do all your own prep work, cook, and enjoy the fruits of your labor, all under expert guidance. The cost couldn’t be more reasonable!

"Fun and Informative"
Our instructor was great. She was very attentive, very patient, informative and safety conscious. We took a brief tour of the market where we learned about done of the key Thai ingredients. We were issued aprons and given cooking stations. Each student has his/her own wok station. We watched the instructor give a detailed demonstration of how to make the fish, then we went o our stations and made our own dishes. In this five hour glass, we made a yellow curry paste, a stir fry, a yellow curry, and a chicken and shrimp salad. We used the sticky rice which the instructor made in a demonstration for mango and sticky rice. Great class!

"Great class, learnt lots"
The class was lots of fun, the teachers were really helpful and explained and demonstrated everything. The meeting point is a little confusing from the description (didn't help they were a little late arriving), basically you meet on the bridge section around exit 3... either look out for someone in a red apron or (like we did) lots of other tourists looking for someone in an apron! The market tour was interesting. Also don't worry if you arrive and there are lots of people, there are multiple classrooms in the building and you get split up into groups of around 12-15.

"Incredible cooking experience"
Our teacher was fun, energetic, delightful, and thorough. She stopped at so many places in the market to explain each an every aspect of how things work, the smells, the tastes, and how they differ from other cultures.
I would 1000% recommend taking this class. They’re the highest reviewed for good reason.
