The Four Seasons Hotel runs cooking courses - I've taken a Thai cooking class there before. They are a bit expensive, and they're not really hands on but it is an interesting introduction to Thai cuisine.

If you ever get to Bali, they have a great cooking course there at the restaurant Bumbi Bali (or something of the sort, ask around). Its run by a Swiss guy I think, and the cooking course includes a trip to the market and cooking a huge amount of dishes. Its a lot of fun.

The last time I was in Bangkok I did a Thai cookery course at Baipai Thai Cooking School which I can't recommend highly enough. It cost 1,400 Baht/person (about €30) which included a recipe book and a cooked lunch - you make it yourself! It was completely hands-on and I learned loads about Thai food and cooking during the course of the day.

They also provide free transfers from and to hotels in central Bangkok which was brilliant. I was staying a bit out of the way so I got picked up first but the driver was fascinating and I learned a lot about the city during the time it took to get there.

Their website is here: www.baipai.com

I would suggest you to ask PIM, from the blog Chez Pim ( it's listed on C&Z favourite blogs). I'm sure she could help you. I believe that the Oriental Hotel has a famous ccoking course, but I'm not sure . Better ask Pim.

I was going to recommend asking Pim. She has recently come back from a nostalgic trip to Thailand and wrote about all the favorite things she used to eat and do as a child growing up in Bangkok. Of course, Simona beat me to it. Guess being in the West Coast of the US, I always check in on the forum at a later time of the day.

Enjoy your time in Thailand!
