Imagine yourself cooking on the mezzanine in the late afternoon with a local Thai chef who has experiences cooking Thai food around the world at the old Bangkok. Chef Alyssa will share with you her signature Chicken Massamun recipe and you will leave the class with skills that help define Thai food culture. All menus can be made Vegetarian/Vegan.
What I liked: I learned recipes that had personality and showed me a different way to cook Thai food. I enjoyed picking herbs and edible flowers from Alyssa’s home garden to use in our cooking.The fried edible flowers that she made into a “som tum” was beautiful and creative. She doesn't just teach you how to cook Thai food, but to put your own personality into the food that you cook.
What to know: The cooking class is at Alyssa's house, which is roughly a 30 minutes drive from Bang Wa BTS station. Alyssa will pick you up and show you suburban Bangkok. We saw a few temples and stopped at a local market.
Good for: The curious cook who is already familiar with Thai food. People interested in private classes.
Best way to get there: Alyssa will pick you up from Bang Wa
We are hidden away on the 2nd floor (mezzanine floor) of the main Yodpiman Flower Market building. This is the building between the main road and Yodpiman River Walk (the newer restaurant / shopping area by the river) and they will be selling a lot of flowers used for offerings. The easiest way to get to us is to take the river ferry and get off at Pak Klong Talad pier (pier N6/1). You can get the local orange flag ferry (15THB - runs from early morning) or the blue flag tourist ferry (40THB – first boat is 9am). If you are staying near a skytrain station you can get the Skytrain to Saphan Taksin and then the ferry.
When you get off the ferry you will be in Yodpiman River Walk and need to walk into the main flower market/ you can wait at Starbucks and we will come and pick you up. If you take a taxi (or Uber), please keep in mind that the traffic can be bad and it can take longer than expected.
If you take a taxi or need to ask someone for assistance you can also show this instructions in Thai.
ปากคลองตลาด จอดหน้าธนาคารธนชาติ, Bank Thanachart, and we can come and pick you up.
