Class program and schedule

Introduction

Learning online

Due to the changing way in which all of us have to function as a result of the current global health crisis, online classes offer a way to momentarily escape from isolation and boredom while learning to cook a cuisine you may not have already been familiar with.

Our online cooking classes are are great way to socialize with other cooking enthusiasts, families looking for a new activity in their daily routines, and a nice introduction to Thai cooking with the added bonus of learning a Thai song and the beginning steps of Thai dancing at the end of the class for those who wish to participate.

Introduction

First 15 minutes
Greeting from instructors and group introduction

Classes are led by at least two of our long time instructors from Bangkok and Chiang Mai Thailand.

Ingredient Preparation

Students begin the class by preparing their ingredients. This will include cutting vegetables and measuring sauces. Instructors will provide safety and efficiency tips for vegetable cutting techniques as well as general preparation advice. Note that there are many ingredient substitutes that can be used in Thai cooking, so if you don't have access to all ingredients locally, you can still participate in our classes using substitute ingredients.
