Learn the art of cooking Thai cuisine while the Peninsula chefs give you a step-by-step demonstration and explain processes and techniques. The class starts off with an optional visit to a local market via The Peninsula’s tuk-tuk to purchase fresh ingredients for the preparation of four wonderful Thai dishes. Afterwards, enjoy the fruit of their labour at a relaxing lunch at the enchanting Thiptara Thai restaurant.
Thai cooking blends several Asian elements and places emphasis on aromatic components. As with other Asian cuisines, balance, detail and variety are of great significance to Thai chefs. Thai food is known for its balance of five taste senses in each dish or the overall meal: sweet, sour, salty, spicy and bitter. Beyond the flavours and health benefits, Thai cuisine is made even more enticing by the elaborate art of food presentation. This ancient skill, still practiced today, is a beautiful demonstration of the convergence of Thai cuisine and culture. Intricate meals are garnished with flowers and masterfully carved fruit and vegetables to create edible works of art.
