Thai cuisine is designed to balance the body's elements and feed them on all levels with satisfying tastes and aromas, and visually appealing, colorful textures.
This exclusive tour takes you to the famous Blue Elephant Restaurant & Cooking School, known for its Royal Thai cuisine. Located in a dazzling turn-of-the-century Sino-Portuguese mansion, the Blue Elephant has fully-equipped facilities offering you the opportunity to prepare local cuisine.
Enjoy a welcome drink before going to the fresh market, accompanied by your instructor. A Thai market is not just for purchasing sustenance, but it also plays an important cultural role and reflects the way of life of the local people. A stroll through the market allows you to experience sounds, sights and an atmosphere not found at home. At the market, you will learn to select and buy Thai ingredients for your personal cooking lesson.
Return to the restaurant for your cooking class. The first session is an introduction to the herbs and spices that are the main ingredients in Thai cuisine. Next is the hands-on cooking experience, where you will prepare four different dishes: appetizer, soup, main dish and a side dish. Enjoy the fruits of your labor, as all the dishes prepared will be provided as your lunch, along with other Thai delicacies.
A certificate from the cooking school will be presented to you prior to your return to the pier.
