Ya's Thai Cookery School Class in Krabi

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Choose a morning, afternoon, or early evening class on booking. Then, begin with pickup from your Krabi town or Ao Nang hotel, or for an additional cost, from your Muang and Tubkaek hotel.

    Meet your professional chef, Ya, and visit a fresh food market. Take in the various stands, and watch as Ya chooses the best ingredients. Then, head to Ya’s school to learn classic Thai cooking. Get an introduction to the country’s food, and discover the rich colors, delicate aromas, and spices that make the perfect Thai meal.

    In the kitchen, try your hand at some traditional Thai dishes. Learn how to balance flavors and cook from scratch using classic utensils and techniques. Get guidance on making curry paste — an essential recipe base — and discover various herbs and spices as you grind them in a stone mortar.

    Dishes will vary, but expect to try out favorites like massaman curry, spicy prawn soup, stir fried chicken, pad Thai, or others.

    Once everything’s ready, savour your creations with your fellow cooks, and get feedback from Ya.

    Then, take your leave, armed with your newfound skills so you can impress everyone back home. Your experience concludes with a hotel drop-off.

    I've been living in Thailand for two years. I'd eaten most (if not all) of the dishes we prepared. But I was shocked by how good the food we made tasted, and how easy it was to make. It's so convenient and inexpensive to eat...More
