The Peninsula Academy

Learn the art of cooking authentic Thai cuisine as Peninsula Bangkok chefs give you step-by-step demonstrations for each dish while explaining proper processes and techniques. The class starts off with an optional visit to a local market in The Peninsula’s tuk-tuk to purchase fresh ingredients for the preparation of four delicious Thai dishes.

Thai food is known for its unique balance of five taste sensations in each dish or in the overall meal: sweet, sour, salty, spicy and bitter. Beyond the flavours and health benefits, Thai cuisine is made even more enticing by its elaborate presentation. This ancient skill 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.
