    You, along with other members of the cooking group, will take a ride by Sky Train (Saphan Taksin) to the Bang Rak morning market. There is no market visit for the afternoon session.

    You then move to the theory class, when the instructor will present a cookery demonstration of the dishes that you will have to prepare!

    Each student will receive a booklet with the recipes of the day.

    It is now time to roll up your sleeves and lay your hands onto the cooking utensils at the Practice Room.

    Each student has his own table and wok. Assisted by the instructor you will learn and experience the culinary technique of Thai cuisine.

    You will have to prepare four dishes.

    Now you can taste and enjoy your own culinary creation in a friendly Thai setting at the Blue Elephant Restaurant.

    The class will be followed by a meal in our delightful restaurant sampling your own cooking as well as additional Thai dishes.
