Khaolak: Thai Cooking Class in a Garden

1. Khaolak: Thai Cooking Class in a Garden

Local Market - Start your adventure bright and early with complimentary pickup from your hotel in Khao Lak. Enjoy the sights of local life in the southern part of Thailand as you drive to your first stop at the local market. - At the market, we will first decide what you would like to cook. In doing so, we will take the opportunity in showing you more of the local side of Khaolak. We will first walk around and search for a local Thai sweet desserts (snack)s to enjoy with, while choosing your menu of the day. - If you do not know yet what to cook, you can choose from the menu of 40 different dishes or ask Pui for her help and advice. There is always a dish for each cook in the class plus a few extras thrown in. Pui can offer her experience to help decide which dishes will compliment each other and the group decides the final menu for the day and the shopping list is then set. - Our chef will explain more about the ingredients as you explore the market. There’s plenty of opportunity to ask questions, to smell the fresh Thai herbs, to see how fresh coconut milk is made and choose the best, select items for the shopping basket. This takes around 45 minutes, then it’s time to head to the kitchen. Food preparation - Once back from the market there will be time for refreshments whilst the ingredients are washed. Under the watchful eye of our chef, everyone will be designated tasks and begin to prepare the ingredients. You will learn how to peel, chop and slice everything the Thai way. One of the highlights is certainly learning how to roll your own Thai spring rolls. When everything is ready it’s time to head over to the kitchen where our gas hobs ready for cooking. Fine Thai Dining - On Your own Thai Creations - Finally, when everything is finished it’s time for the best part of the day, to sample what everybody has made. Lunch is served in traditional Thai style with everyone seated around a large table and all dishes laid out in the middle of the table. There’s always plenty of food so you get to try everything plus an extra portion or two of your favorites. During lunch, you will also learn which condiments suit certain dishes and get the chance to ask our Chef any final questions. After that, with a full belly it’s time to collect your recipes and head back to your hotel.

What people are saying about Phang Nga Province

Pui’s cooking class was definitely a highlight of our trip. She was so knowledgeable and friendly. The visit to the fresh markets was a real experience and cooking the meals at Pui’s stunning house was a relaxing treat. She answered all our questions and helped us cook the most delicious meals. At the end of the cooking lesson Pui sent us the beautiful photos she took of us all along with all the recipes we cooked that day. Highly recommend!!

We really enjoyed the course. Pui is very friendly and open-minded, was with us at the market and patiently explained all questions about various foods, their effects and use. The subsequent cooking was also very instructive and above all... super tasty! We also received prescriptions. We would recommend everyone to take this course...a real enrichment of the holiday!!!

Was a great experience. We loved buying the ingredients in the local market and then got to make 3 dishes of our choice and enjoy 9 with recipes and photos sent to us after the class. Well worth a visit!

So much fun! Very informative. The food was incredible and I learnt so much.
