Corporate cooking classes

About the classes - approach and style

Classes are hands on and practical. Rather than a cooking demonstration, you will be doing most of the prep and all the cooking! Classes are intended to be relaxed and fun, reflecting the Thai approach to life.

Your team can choose the dishes they learn and at the end of the class there will be enough food for a meal so it combines a really fun and interactive event with also providing a delicious lunch or dinner!

Your class starts with an introduction to Thai ingredients (and substitutes) and the key flavours in Thai cooking - sweet, sour, salty and spicy. Through the class and an 'active tasting' approach, you will learn how to create these flavours and, importantly, how to balance them.

There is no need for team members to have any previous cooking experience, just a love of food and a willingness to experiment!
