About
The Courageous Kitchen is an experience that takes you shopping in a local market before teaching you to prepare your favorite Thai dishes. We'll start the day in the market, nab a few street snacks, and then begin creating the menu you help select. Classes are purposely small and intimate, and the best part is proceeds from classes go toward a great cause!

Tofu!! 10/10
Feb 2020 • Friends
Had the best afternoon with friends we learnt how to make our own tofu! The team is so wonderful and helpful carefully explaining and teaching us the method of tofu creation. We made a stir fry with tofu we made ourselves and it was delicious! The trip to local food carts was really fun and got to try lots of yummy things! Highly recommend taking a class with courageous kitchen! A wonderful experience!

Amazing custom cooking class with Alina!
Dec 2019
This was a great custom cooking class that we had taken with Alina!! I enjoyed the market tour, and bought a few things along the way. When we first booked ourselves in for the class, we wanted to try a few different things, and taking our suggestions in mind, Dwight and his team created a Northern Thai menu for us including making our own red curry paste, sai oua (Northern Thai sausage, pork + red curry paste), nam prik ong (homestyle pork + tomato dish), khao soi (red curry coconut soup + egg noodles), and of course mango sticky rice for dessert.

The class was really informative, and Alina took the time to answer all my questions (and trust me, I ask a lot of questions!!). For example, she explained why we needed 2-3 different types of chilis in a curry paste, and that using kaffir lime peel sparingly is enough to pack a punch, whereas I would have added all the peel!

After we were done with the class, it was nice to have a chat with Dwight & Christy about their company, and what they do for the community.

While there are lots of cooking classes other there, offering both standard and customized menus, we chose to go with Courageous Kitchen because the money goes back to the community - their efforts are focused on helping communities in need, through kitchen and nutrition education, providing food, and providing a safe place for personal development. I can't think of a better place where our money can be refocused to help those in need. Kudos to Courageous Kitchen!!

Food with a purpose
Nov 2019
Of course learning to prepare our own Thai meal was a great education and experience. What was most impressive is the mission. Watching Dwight gently guide his student "chef" explain and teach was something that only comes from the heart. We selected this experience as an offering from our Holland America cruise. It is clear that CK provides these refugee young people with the professional skills to compete in the employment market. The goal is a job with dignity and the food is almost secondary.

Authentic Thai experience
Dec 2019 • Family
While Courageous Kitchen is a little farther than most classes, it also means it’s more offbeat and authentic. We took the Family Session, and it was great to have our 4-yr old not just tolerated but actually included in the class. Dwight and his team, especially Alina, are all wonderful people, who went out of their way with everything, from picking us up to the class to making sure we got a cab to the airport where we were headed after this lovely experience.

What an amazing time!!!
We are a family of four with two girls, 11 and 8 years old lucky enough to be travelling the world for several months. Went to this Thai cooking class as we saw their charitable work.
Had an absolutly fabulous time preparing and cooking our own food, the kids were allowed to learn and do their own cooking to with their own host. The menu was authentic and different Thai food. Learnt so much about food and the work of Courageous Kitchen. Cannot recommend highly enough!

My first Thai cooking class experience -- and it was amazing!
Sep 2018 • Friends
My friend enrolled us in a class as a gift. We had to take a cab from Khlong San area to get to where it is, but it was worth it. Our group met our instructor near the market, we all went there to buy our ingredients and taste some delicious street food, before we went to the Courageous Kitchen house to cook. Very good teacher, I managed to make delicious dishes (so proud!), spend time with new and old friends, and help out Courageous Kitchen's cause! Keep up the good work!

Wonderful people doing amazing things
May 2019 • Solo
Had a private tour through the markets before joining several others to put it all together into a couple of tasty dishes. Can't wait to get home to put what I learned into practice. But what the Courageous Kitchen does to help refugees was the most important lesson.

Cooking with a superwoman
May 2019 • Solo
Had a fabulous day cooking with Alina and her assistant. After meeting with Alina we took a trip to the local market to look at various food used in Thai cooking. After the market we headed to the house and got cooking. We cooked an entree, main and made a desert. The food was delicious and the company inspiring and very courageous.
