For those who wish to discover the secrets of Thai cuisine, Bai Pai Cooking School is the perfect place to visit. This Thai cooking school boasts official accreditation from the Ministry of Education of Thailand since April 2002. Bai Pai specialises in home-style Thai cooking which visitors will undoubtedly enjoy. The school welcomes tourist, expats and local residents who share a passion for the wonderful and bold flavours of Thailand.
Bai Pai Cooking School offers classes in English and Thai in a convenient location not far from Novotel Bangkok IMPACT. First impressions are lasting and visitors will love walking into the cooking school premises. The two-storey wooden house sits in a lush garden of palms and other tropical plants which will instantly set the mood for a unique experience. The cooking area is a bright and open plan room with cooking stations. The dining area is located one floor above. The biggest appeal is by far the convivial atmosphere of every cooking class. The learning experience is reminiscent of learning to cook with one’s grandmother. Each diligent student gets a cooking station and then begins the culinary journey.
The teachers at Bai Pai Cooking School all speak English and classes are very easy to follow. The instructor will begin with an outline of the four dishes to prepare during the class. The head chef then begins with a practical demonstration, enough to make everyone’s mouth water. The class is interactive and all students are free to ask any questions about ingredients and appropriate seasoning. As one would say, there’s no such thing as a foolish question. The instructors and chefs will patiently provide an answer to every question with traditional Thai poise and patience. After the demonstration, comes practice. All the colourful and fresh ingredients are laid out at each station and then it’s time cook!
Bai Pai Cooking School is highly recommended even for those with little cooking experience. After a few hours of learning and practice, the highlight of the journey is eating all the delicious food. Certainly a great place to visit for guests at Novotel Bangkok IMPACT as the school is only a short taxi ride away by expressway. Bai Pai also offers a pick-up service from hotels in Bangkok. The location is quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It is a perfect environment for diving into the delicious secrets of Thai cuisine.
