Blue Elephant Cooking School
The Blue Elephant Cooking School in Bangkok offers students first-hand, practical classes into preparation of Royal Thai Cuisine. Amateur, accomplished or professional chefs alike are guided by instructors who are passionate about their art and dedicated to provide the highest quality cooking experience. Housed in a renovated colonial-style mansion in Sathorn, which is also home to the Blue Elephant Restaurant Bangkok, the ambiance and surroundings are ever so slightly sophisticated and exclusive.
The Blue Elephant Cooking School is housed at the award winning restaurant, known for its exceptional Thai and Fusion cuisine. Your group will be picked up at your hotel and transferred to the restaurant. After having a Thai herbal welcome drink, students will discuss the 4 course meal they will prepare with the chef before heading to the Bang Rak morning market by sky train. The instructor will introduce to the group the fresh Thai herbs, vegetables, fruits and other products.
After arriving back at the cooking, a theory class will be conducted where the instructor explains and demonstrates each dish at a time. Each student will receive a folder with the recipes, notes and an apron.
After theory follows practice: each student will have their own stove and wok and will be assisted by the instructor. Students will learn and experience the culinary techniques of Thai cuisine and when the course comes to an end, the students will be presented with a “Blue Elephant Cooking School Certificate” and a cooking set as a souvenir.
But the proof of the pudding is in the eating which is exactly what happens once cooking is complete. Your group will be invited to be seated in the convivial Thai setting at the Blue Elephant restaurant to devour their culinary creations before being returned back to the hotel by private transfer or onto the next activity.
