Love the delicious taste of Thai food? Fascinated by the scintillating aromas? Want to learn some of the secrets behind preparing what is one of the world’s most loved cuisines?
Answer yes to any of the above and you’ll want to make a reservation at the resort’s Culinary Academy, which runs Thai cooking classes. Located in a delightful wooden pavilion behind Le Grand Lanna restaurant, the classroom-style kitchen is fitted with individual cooking stations, extractor hoods, sinks and preparation areas for up to 20 ‘culinary students’.
More than just a cooking class, it’s a journey of culinary exploration and discovery, in which the chef explains the subtle balance of flavours in Thai cuisine – including the secrets of Lanna herbs and spices – and the difference between northeastern, central and southern Thai styles.
At the end of a class, guests are presented with an apron, Culinary Academy certificate (perfect for hanging on the kitchen wall back home) and easy-to-follow menu print-outs of the dishes cooked… great mementos from a great experience.
The Cooking Class is held daily
Morning class with market tour at THB 3,500++ per person
