3 Things to Remember When Booking a Cooking Class in Thailand


One of the most enjoyable activities that you could try with your friends, lover, or even family and kids in Thailand is a cooking class. Everyone enjoys Thai food, so why not actually gain the skills to bring authentic, delicious Thai food back home? Now, that's not just a souvenir of Thai herbs that you’ll be bringing back.

It's a skill that will stick with you. You can even share what you learned from this experience with your friends and family back home! When checking out a cooking class in Thailand, it’s important to make sure that you pick one that suits you, your level of skill when it comes to cooking, and what you want to learn. Here are a few things to consider when booking a cooking class in Thailand:

Look for the Right Class

Right off the bat, it’s important to try to find a class that works for you and your needs. If you aren’t proficient in Thai, you may want to find a class that will be taught in your language. You may want to learn how to recreate your favorite Thai dish. And of course, you want to register for a class that suits your level of expertise in cooking.

If you are a beginner, you will want to look for a beginners class, but if you are more advanced in the art of cooking, but have never learned to make Thai food, you might be able to find a class that will use harder terminology and techniques that you already understand. Make sure that you do your research ahead of time so that you sign up for a class that can accommodate your needs.

Make Sure That You Can Keep Up With The Level

Whether you've never cooked anything in your life or consider yourself quite the chef, there is a Thai cooking class for you. For the most part, these classes will be beginner-friendly. This means that you can bring children along with you or even family members who might not be too kitchen-savvy. If you are a chef or want to find a more advanced cooking class, you will want to look around a little bit more, seeing as most of the classes advertised to tourists are made for beginners. If you think a beginner class will be too slow for you, you might want to ask the teachers or tour guides if there is anything more suitable for your expertise.

Don’t Shy Away From Going Alone

If you are planning to go alone or you are a solo traveler, this will be a great opportunity for you. Not only will you learn a new skill, but you may meet new friends while on this tour. Learning new techniques and dishes will be a great experience for you as a solo traveler, even if you aren't very much a fan of the socializing aspect of the tour.

You might want to make sure you ask about how many people will be there on the day that you are going if you are an introvert who doesn't want to be in a class with too many people. In this case, you can also look for private cooking classes or ask the teachers on the tours whether or not they offer private lessons so that you don't need to be there while there is a group of people.
