We did the cooking class last minute - and were thrilled. It was so much pleasure to stroll through the market in Hua Hin and to then cook such tasty dishes. Our teacher was very experienced and we really enjoyed the class. Totally recommended!
After being picked up from your hotel, you will visit Hua Hin’s bustling main fresh food market in the city centre. Take in the unique and colourful scene while learning how to choose the ingredients you will be using later.
Then it’s off to the cooking school via a Songthaew – a Thai pickup truck style taxi with seating in the back. After the 5-10 min journey enjoy a refreshing lemongrass tea while learning how to make coconut cream and milk by hand. Then it’s time to prepare and cook your first dish of the day – Green Curry with Chicken. After pounding out the curry paste from the base ingredients you will have a chance to taste and watch a demonstration dish cooked by your instructor. Now it’s your turn.. Once happy with your dish you can sit down to enjoy it while it’s hot and fresh. Maybe make some notes in your recipe booklet while discussing the dish with your classmates around the big communal dining tables.
The next dishes you will try your ever improving hand at is Tom Yum Soup with Shrimp and Pad Thai Noodles. Each time following the same process of demonstration and taste. To finish and freshen the palette everyone can chip in to put together a delicious Thai dessert – Jackfruit with Coconut Cream and Tapioca.
Don’t worry if you don’t like your food spicy as you can customize your creations to suit your tastes. The pace is leisurely and there will be plenty of time to take in the relaxing surroundings. Enjoy a coffee while checking out the koi pond and Asian antiques.
Wear your eating pants as there is a lot of food. We suggest a light breakfast is best. But don’t worry as doggie bags are available!
