A lecture on common spices and herbs used in Thai dishes. We all were surprised that Chef was enthusiastic as this were the first day at work. Chef loves his work so much and is fully committed to it.

A Northern Thai soup. Fish sauce and lots of spices in it. A complex flavour and an intense aftertaste.

Pure as mineral water..haha

The finished dish is very gorgeous.
The arrangement is beautiful, it seems that deliciousness will come up just by looking with eyes.
How to make it is also very authentic.

If you happen to travel to Bangkok, this cooking school is a must for you.

First-class facilities and atmosphere. And the chef in charge is experienced, hearty and always willing to share his cooking experience with you.
