1. Bangkok: Blue Elephant Thai Cooking Class
Spice things up and experience Thai culture through its vibrant culinary scene. After meeting at Blue Elephant, a renowned Bangkok establishment recognized by the Michelin Guide, you’ll head out to the marketplace to pick up supplies for the day (in the case of the morning class), or get straight to business in the afternoon class. Your day begins with a theory class, in which your passionate instructor will explain the ingredients and techniques behind Thai cooking, complete with a thorough demonstration of the recipes you’ll be making. After the theory portion, don your apron and head to your station, complete with all the ingredients you’ll need, utensils, a burner, and a wok. With the guidance of acclaimed chefs, prepare your 4- or 5-course meal to perfection. Afterwards, savor the food you’ve prepared in the historic, century-old restaurant. To cap things off, you’ll take home a culinary certificate, as well as recipes for all the dishes you’ve created so you can recreate the gems of Thai cuisine at home.
