You will be picked up at your hotel at the designated time on your booking confirmation and escorted to the Spicey Thai House in Chaweng. Once at the Spicey thai house you will meet and get to know your English-speaking chef, the very likeable and charming Chef Thitipong. A great benefit of this short course is that Chef Thitipong can give a great deal of individual attention to the limited group sizes of 6. Six is just enough to make it great fun but not too crowded.

Each day Chef Thittipong will be showing how to make curry paste, Thai dessert and 4 different items. Curry paste is an essential intricate part of Thai cuisine, so Chef Thitipong will teach how to make it the traditional way. For Thai cooking enthusiasts you’ll be pleased to know that each day has a different menu set so if you are hear for a few weeks then more can be learnt on following visits.

A highlight of your trip will be to first go to the market with the Chef. The colors, smells and chitter chatter of a Thai grocery market will certainly awaken the senses and give you a great introduction to what’s in store for the morning.
