Pui’s Thai Cooking Class

Your day will start at around 9:30am in the morning and end at around 1:30pm after lunch. We will pick you up from your Khao Lak hotel or resort and then drive you to the local market nearby where you will be met by Pui.

At the market, we will first decide what you would like to cook. In doing so, we will take the opportunity in showing you more of the local side of Khaolak. We will first walk around and search for a local Thai snacks to enjoy with, while choosing your menu of the day.

An Introduction to Thai Ingredients

If you do not know yet what to cook, you can choose from the menu of 40 different dishes or ask Pui for her help and advice. There is always a dish for each cook in the class plus a few extras thrown in. Pui can offer her experience to help decide which dishes will compliment each other and the group decides the final menu for the day and the shopping list is then set.

Pui will explain more about the ingredients as you explore the market. There’s plenty of opportunity to ask questions, to smell the fresh Thai herbs, to see how fresh coconut milk is made and choose the best, select items for the shopping basket. This takes around 45 minutes, then it’s time to head to the kitchen.

Food Preparation

And the Art of Thai Cooking

Once back from the market there will be time for refreshments whilst the ingredients are washed. Under the watchful eye of Pui everyone will be designated tasks and begin to prepare the ingredients. You will learn how to peel, chop and slice everything the Thai way. One of the highlights is certainly learning how to roll your own Thai spring rolls. When everything is ready it’s time to head over to the kitchen where there are four gas hobs ready for cooking.

Learning to cook Thai food

Again, under instructions from Pui it’s time for the real action to begin. As well as learning the correct sequence for cooking thai dishes, you will pick-up tips, tricks and explanations at every step from the master cook. How to fry curry pastes the proper way, why certain sugars are used instead of others and importantly when the food is finished. Cooking Thai food is quite a fast, hot art and you don’t want to over do it.

When all the dishes are cooked there are some further instructions on how to present the food and what extra ingredients are required to accompany each particular dish. To serve Thai food properly it’s important to know things like curries are served with steamed rice, but papaya salad is served with sticky rice.
