Traditional Thai Cooking Classes and Catering

Thai cuisine is known throughout the world, as being one of the most varied and delicious. The flavours are divine. The aromas are enough to make your mouth water with anticipation and on top of that, it is fresh, healthy food!

Pat’s Thai cooking classes are also renowned throughout the world as being the first, the best and the ONLY home Thai cooking classes in Phuket.

Pat Tienthong, originally a native of Bangkok, is fluent in English, having spent eight years in California where she worked as a chef. She can answer all your questions and impart all her special secrets for creating the most authentic and delicious Thai dishes. She will teach you traditional methods of creating Thai culinary masterpieces in a completely hands-on learning environment, all in the comfort of her stylish home where you can even enjoy a stroll through her lush tropical garden after your meal.

From the preparation of the ingredients right through the cooking process, to the best part – the eating – you will experience it all first hand. Pat even gives you easy to follow recipes and a certificate upon completion!

With her extensive knowledge of both eastern and western cuisine, Pat can even suggest ingredients that may be difficult to locate in your home country and alternatives, which could be substituted so that flavour and authenticity are not compromised. You can enjoy learning the art of Thai cooking and then savour it at home with your family and friends – it will be a ‘souvenir’ that you cherish for a lifetime from your trip to Thailand.
