Thank you for sharing!
I went with 2 friends to the cooking school and had an amazing experience. We went for the full day and attended a local market with the chef to begin with. It was a slightly more authentic market than I was used to with only a few stalls selling produce. The chef spoke very good English and explained how to find the best products whether it was dried shrimp of garlic.
We cooked six dishes after returning from the market. The room you cook in is air conditioned and well equipped. Everything was ready and waiting for us upon our return. The food really is amazing and you can taste the difference between the food you cook here and the food in many restaurants. Everything is so fresh.
The day is really fun and the chef is really knowledgeable with any questions you might want to ask.
The only thing I would say is that they are so organised and helpful that it is almost too easy. All of the quantities you need are already prepared for you, but you do get given a recipe booklet with everything you need to know. I have already replicated the Som Tam (Papaya Salad) at home and it is delicious.
Thanks for an awesome day.
We chose Chef Lee Z due to it’s ratings on Trip Advisor and we we not disappointed. Chef Lee really knows her craft, she is an expert with Thai cuisine. She and her staff were welcoming and friendly and made us so relaxed it was like cooking with family. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would definitely recommend it. And the bonus is you get to eat everything you cook so bring an appetite with you.
Chef Leez organised a class for myself, my wife and best mate during the New Year celebrations. I was nervous about the class but needn’t have been as chef made us feel welcome and got us striaght to work! We created a full menu of delicious dishes and her sense of humour really helped the day go by easily. I really enjoyed learning how to make Massaman curry and its become something of a speciality since I got home. In addition, chef took us to the fresh food market and this was a real eye opener for the sheer range of food types from , livestock to eel via thousand year eggs. We really enjoyed this class and will definately be back next time we are in Bangkok. Absolute class!
Second day in Bangkok we found this cooking class, verry nice chef and verry verry nice dishes. If you tried this you wil recognize good Thai food during your stay.
We did two cooking schools, one in Singapore and this one in Bangkok. I have to say that Chef Leez was better!
I was impressed with the amount of dishes I prepared (and ate) and the whole thing was well thought out. We did three soups, two curries, salad, and a dessert. Then after we were full (but not uncomfortably so) took a nice walk to the local market. It was a simple neighborhood open air market behind some alley would never have walked down on our own. I liked that she showed us how she picked the right dried shrimps and which vegetables and not the old dark dried chilies etc. I liked that I finally had someone to ask about the market cats and stray(?) dogs (while none particular owns them, people will be nice and provide water and scraps so they keep away rats and lizards). I just visited a local Thai market in Oakland and will try things in my own kitchen.
Would definitely recommended! It’s nice to get out of the heat and sun, so many our activities were outdoors a break was nice.
