Arrive at Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok on the day of your choosing and be ready for an extremely hands-on experience. At the Oriental Thai Cooking School, chefs will make you understand the fundamentals. The morning starts with a visit to the local market with the chef, where guests explore the vast world of ingredients used in Thai cooking and gain insights into the kingdom’s fascinating culture and traditions. Having selected the freshest products, guests then return to the kitchen where they transform them, under the guidance of the chef, into four authentic dishes. 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. If you’ve been here before, The Oriental Thai Cooking School still has much to teach you. The school changes the cooking theme every three months. Whatever you choose, the school guarantees an intimate cooking experience that takes place in an old wooden Thai house.
Guests may also choose to book a private class to create an exquisite and customized menu, again under the guidance of the chef and his team. The gastronomic discovery ends as guests taste their creations at Sala Rim Naam.
