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.

Goong hosted our class and guided us around the market naming and explaining all the herbs, spices, fruits and fresh items with which we were unfamiliar. Then back at the course we were guided through a four course meal cooking each course separately and preparing all the fresh ingredients from the market. Brilliantly and efficiently organised, Goong explained clearly, passionately, patiently and with good humour everything we needed to know to become rated Thai chefs back at home! Thanks for an enjoyable and memorable afternoon, love Batman & Robin

Our teacher (I forgot her name.. but she was the female teacher!) was so sweet and funny, very informative during the market tour and so generous, she made sure we got to try all the Thai snacks we had never tried and taught us a lot about each ingredient we bought. She made sure everyone felt involved and the cooking part itself was so fun! The facilities were clean and beautiful, and we got to eat 4 delicious dishes. I Highly recommend, it was my favorite part of my week stay in Bangkok.

"The dishes we cooked were amazing"
First cooking class for me and I have to say that I have been really positively impressed. First we went to the local market to buy the ingredients and then went to the cooking school location. A typical Thai house with nice interiors and really welcoming. The teacher was just great. We cooked four different dishes, all of them were delicious (each participant could adapt his own dish). I highly recommend to try this experience while in Bangkok

Thoroughly enjoyed our class. Joo was great at giving instructions and making the class fun. All of the dishes were really tasty and I feel confident I could recreate them at home. A fantastic experience!
The recipe book is a really nice touch and has useful information on alternative ingredients incase some of the more Thai bits aren’t available.

"Very good explained and incredible delicious"
The class was very good, Aey was really nice and funny an explained everything really good. I learned quite much about thai culture and how the thai kitchen works.
The food was by far the best thai food I have ever eaten.
Unfortunately the time was quite tight, so we did not spent as much time to do the cooking itself as I thought we would.
Still, a very good class:)

"Thorough, informative and engaging."
I highly recommend Maliwan Thai Cooking class. The market tour was fascinating and I learned a lot about the local ingredients. The class itself was professionally and efficiently run. We each had our own cooking station and the ingredients were premeasured and set out for us to cook following an excellent and thorough demonstration. We each had a taste of the instructor's cooking in order to have a baseline to follow. She made it fun and interesting and ensured that we could replicate our experience, as much as she could. After cooking our individual entrees, we all sat down together for an enjoyable meal of our own cooking. It started and finished on time. My experience in Bangkok would not have been as memorable without this awesome cooking class. DO IT!

Chin was our tutor for the class. She was very professional with strong knowledge in Thai cuisine and the ingredients. She was also very funny throughout the class to make cooking extra interesting. The timing and logistics of the course is perfect. There were plenty of food and laughters. I would recommend all my friends to join the class for some cultural touch.

"Really good experiance"
I was the only man in a group of women with their girls. Aey was able to handle all of us. Her English is really good. The meals were awesome. The time at the market was short but it's so loud there - Aey is right - you hear anything if you have questions.
I really liked the class and can recommend her offer.
