The Food Of Thailand

Thailand’s tasty food needs no introduction, with so many exotic flavours and fragrances it’s a cuisine that is well known around the world.

With four fundamental tastes in each dish or meal of sweet, sour, hot and salty, the detail and variety are of great significance to Thai Chefs.

We will demonstrate in our hands-on class how to achieve the balance of complex flavours such as chillies, limes, fish sauce, Thai basil and coriander.  We look at where you can source all the necessary ingredients locally, so that you can recreate the dishes at home.

At the start of the class we will walk you through the smells and taste of the ingredients giving you a really good foundation of Thai food and then your fresh ingredients will be brought out on individual trays ready to start cooking.

Tasting as we cook is a must, which means there will be plenty to eat throughout the class, giving your taste buds a real workout!

At the end of the class you will have cooked an entire Thai meal from rice through to dipping sauces. This is a great class for anyone who loves Thai food or wants to try the cuisine for the first time.  With Thai music on in the background it’s also a good way to transport yourself to Khao San Road, Bangkok, but without the air miles!

Please note we run three different classes around Thai cuisine, each with slightly differing content:

 

Thai Street Food

Thai Street Food brings together various offerings of ready-to-eat meals & snacks, sold at food stalls on the street side in Thailand. Sampling Thai street food is very popular, as it offers a taste of traditional Thai cooking.

Bangkok is often mentioned as one of the best place for street food, the city is notable for both its variety of offerings and the abundance of street hawkers.

What our customers said:

I was bought a Thai cooking lesson as a birthday present from my wife and while I like Thailand, and the food I ate while travelling there, I wasn't that worried about being able to cook it at home. On the day of the lesson I was in two minds about going. 

I am so glad I did!
Everything about "Flavours" was great! The friendly welcome, the fun atmosphere and the fantastic food!
I left on a happy high with bags of delicious food created by my own hand (with a lot of guidance) and ready and very willing to cook Thai at home.
I recommend anyone wanting to learn something new, try something different or just have a change to try out "Flavours".

I have now completed 5 professional cookery classes the Flavours Thai Street Food course being the most recent of the 5.
The course was excellent and by far the best I have attended. Here's why:
From the moment you enter the school you are made welcome and immediately feel at home. Des and Amy could not be more accommodating.
The process is really well thought out. General use ingredients are placed at all work stations and these are then supplemented with specific ingredients for each dish. Hygiene is extremely well managed with all chicken cutting boards and knives removed and cleaned thoroughly whilst being replaced with colour coded new boards. Sinks are on hand to enable regular hand washing and paper towels and cotton towels are provided.
Des gives very clear instructions as to what to do and how to prepare the dish and cooks his dish at the time each student prepares and cooks theirs.
Des tastes each one and makes suggestions to improve the flavour and or texture, a real learning process.
All students are encouraged to try Des's dish and each others, which makes for great fun and encourages learning through discussion.
Food and beverage help yourself snacks are provided and the atmosphere is very warm and relaxed.
Lunch enables the students to enjoy some of their own dishes as well as the dishes Des has prepared plus one or two extra items.
The real buzz comes from the superb dishes that are awesome. Full of flavour and fairly easy to prepare at home.
The dishes prepared by the students are well packaged for taking home.
Mine was enjoyed by my family and by 8 year old and 6 year old grandchildren. The ultimate accolade being my 8 year old granddaughter asking if I was going to cook for them the next evening. Praise indeed.
I cant recommend this course highly enough.
