At Blue Ginger Restaurant, we offer the opportunity to learn how to create authentic Thai dishes so that you can enjoy the flavors of your trip when you return home.
Courses are available for complete beginners, as well as those who are already familiar with Thai cooking and require advanced level training. The classes can be taken on a one-on-one basis or in small groups of up to four persons.
Every student will have the chance to choose what they want to cook (so you can recreate your favorite dish from your stay). The lessons begin with a trip to the local market accompanied by our chef who will show you how to pick the best herbs and spices available in Thailand. You will also be shown alternative ingredients to use in Thai dishes that will be more readily available in your supermarket when you return home.
When you return to the restaurant, you will prepare a meal using the fresh ingredients from your market visit. Some of our most popular guest created dishes include the Thai favorites of curries, pad thai, coconut soup, papaya salad, mango with sticky rice and dishes using fresh local seafood.
We have also created a special course for couples who want to learn how to prepare the ultimate romantic Thai meal. Couples are provided with one-on-one instruction, a trip to the local market and a final romantic candlelit four course meal.
Another specialty of Thai cuisine is the use of ornate carved fruit and vegetables. Learn how to create your own artistic designs in our class that focuses on teaching this skill. Within just two to three lessons, you will be amazed at the intricate designs you are able to achieve.
