I really like Thai food so I was incredibly happy when I was able to sign up for the cooking lesson during #TBEXAsia
Naj Thai Cooking School is one of the best culinary schools in Bangkok. It has its own herb garden which they use to educate the students about the different herbs used in Thai cooking.
They also have an award-winning restaurant at the back which caters to Bangkok's high society. What's even more interesting is that the house where the restaurant is in, used to belong to one of the ancestors of the King (if I remember it correctly). You can book the restaurant for events and other small private functions.
This is my very first formal cooking lesson. I had a lot of fun learning how to cook some of my favorite Thai dishes: Tom Yum, Pad Thai and Green curry. It was really exciting. I felt like I'm in MasterChef!
Chef Ohm explained to us in detail the history of these Thai dishes, the use of each ingredient, as well as, clear instructions for each dish. He also shared to us some of his childhood memories on learning how to cook from his grandmother. Plus, he also gave some cooking tips like how to cook properly using coconut milk and making the perfect sunny side up egg without the need for a non-stick pan.
Of course, we get to try our freshly prepared dishes. Yum! After our cooking lesson, we get to tour their herb garden, high class restaurant, and wine cellar. To finish it off, we get to enjoy traditional Thai refreshments. They also gave us the recipes of the dishes that we cooked to help us replicate them in our own kitchen.
