Learn how to cook the best Thai dishes at Amita Thai Cooking Class and finish off by sitting down to enjoy your own creations for lunch.
Amita Thai Cooking class is located within the landscape of the Chao Phraya River, on the bank of the water arteries that run through the old town of Bangkok. The name Amita is a Sanskrit word that literally means everlasting or eternity. We welcome you with Thai culture reflected in the intricate details of the architecture, the delicious fruits fresh from the trees in the garden, the simplicity of Thai living styles by the river and the generous smiles of Thai people. And yes, the pleasures of Thai cooking.
At Amita Thai Cooking Class, you will learn how to prepare and cook many favourite Thai dishes from our extensive list of recipes such as Khang Keaw Wan Gai (Green Curry Chicken in Coconut Milk), Phad Thai (Stir fried soft rice noodles with prawns and tamarind sauce) and Tom Yum Goong (Clear hot and sour soup with fresh prawns).
Classes are completely hands-on, encouraging you to practice Thai cooking techniques. The instructors will introduce you to Thai cuisines and explain the four delicious dishes you will be cooking, before leading you through their nursery herb garden to pick first-handedly fresh Thai ingredients for your dishes. Among the plant varieties found in the school's garden are guinea pepper, holy basil, kaffir lime, piper sarmentosum, plate brush and Thai basil.
The instructors will then present a cooking demonstration and provide tasting samples. At your personal cooking station, the instructors will guide you through the recipe step-by-step as you cook the dish.
At the end of the class, a delicious four-course meal prepared by you, will be set up for lunch at our Thai style veranda overlooking the canal. The place is well shaded by many mango, star fruit and rose apple trees.
