Courses at the Thai Orchid Cooking School are based on the philosophy that a meal should be a beautiful thing, made with love and shared with love. The school was started by "A" and her family who have the same dream of sharing their love of Thai cooking with those who desire to learn how to cook delicious Thai food but also to experience the culture and poetry of Thai cuisine.

We began with an overview of the day and chose what we would like to cook, between my wife and I we made, spring rolls,... More

This was one of our best experiences in Thailand, overall. "A" is absolutely lovely. She picked us up from our hotel and dropped us back at the end of the day. The cooking class is in her home and the whole environment is very warm and welcoming. The entire operation is very professionally executed with several employees working in the... More

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our day with A and Kong. It was amazing to learn how to produce such flavoursome authentic food from such few ingredients. As confessed foodies, we were also able to ask questions about those tricky things we've never got right at home. I can honestly say the spring rolls we made were the best... More

Private Morning class, clocking four dishes with two children (10 and 12). After an informative market visit (bring your camera), class started. Cocking station / kitchen was clean and tidy. Dishes were surprisingly simple to make, also for the kids, and tasted great of course. Staff is friendly and speaks English well. After class chef dropped us of at our... More

I did this cooking course with my boyfriend and we both absolutely loved it. A is a wonderful teacher and very friendly and funny as well. We enjoyed all the little extra tips and tricks she taught us including knife skills and substitutions for when we're recreating these dishes at home and found the amount of dishes you cook is...

This is a great place to learn a little Thai cooking - we couldn't have been happier. A & Kong are a married couple who share the teaching duties. They go out of their way to cater to everyone's food needs - vegetarian, no seafood, no pork... Whatever you need, they help you prepare it just for you. And it... More

My husband and I had an amazing time on our day with A and her family at Thai Orchid. Between the cooking and the trip to the market, we learned so much about Thai food and culinary culture, and enjoyed the company of people from all over the world. I even learned the secret to why Thai people don't get... More

I have just spent the day with A and Kong at the Thai orchid cookery school. What a fantastic experience, the course was well organized and good attention was paid to food hygiene and providing each person with assistance and direction as required. We were well looked after throughout. I was traveling solo, the course is restricted to even numbers... More
