If you plan on attending The Oriental Thai Cooking School, plan ahead. Especially with the day of your class because the school follows the “du jour” concept. Each day of the week (except Tuesdays when the school is closed) focuses on a different set of a 4-course meal, which makes it hard to choose because they are all enticing.
Arrive on the day of your choosing and be ready for an extremely hands-on experience. At this school, chefs will make you understand the fundamentals. A simple paste needs to be created from its individual ingredients so be ready to chop and ground. A dumpling batter needs to be of the right consistency so be ready to mix and stir. All of this will reward you with deep insight into Thai cooking.
Courses vary from basic cooking to cooking with market visit and customized menus. Whatever you choose, the school guarantees an intimate cooking experience that takes place in an old wooden Thai house.
