Amita Thai Cooking class is located within the landscape of the Chao Phraya River, on the bank of the water arteries that run through the old town of Bangkok. The name Amita is a Sanskrit word that literally means everlasting or eternity. We welcome you with Thai culture reflected in the intricate details of the architecture, the delicious fruits fresh from the trees in the garden, the simplicity of Thai living styles by the river and the generous smiles of Thai people. And yes, the pleasures of Thai cooking.
At Amita Thai Cooking Class, you will learn how to prepare and cook many favorite Thai dishes from our extensive list of recipes such as Khang Keaw Wan Gai (Green Curry Chicken in Coconut Milk), Phad Thai (Stir fried soft rice noodles with prawns and tamarind sauce) and Tom Yum Goong (Clear hot and sour soup with fresh prawns).
Classes are completely hands-on, encouraging you to practice Thai cooking techniques. Our instructors will introduce you to Thai cuisines and explain the four delicious dishes you will be cooking, before leading you through our nursery herb garden to pick first-handedly fresh Thai ingredients for your dishes. Among the plant varieties found in the school’s garden are guinea pepper, holy basil, kaffir lime, piper sarmentosum, plate brush and Thai basil.
Our instructors will then present a cooking demonstration and provide tasting samples. At your personal cooking station, the instructors will guide you through the recipe step-by-step as you cook the dish.
At the end of the class, a delicious four-course meal prepared by you, will be set up for lunch at our Thai style veranda overlooking the canal. The place is well shaded by many mango, star fruit and rose apple trees.
Traveling to Amita Thai Cooking Class will be equally special. Our car will pick you up and drive through the old parts of Bangkok to Maharaj Pier. From the private boat, you will enjoy the sights and sounds of the Chao Phraya River, such as the Royal Grand Palace and the Temple of Dawn. The boat will turn into Bangkok Yai canal, where you will see many homes still traditionally by the water including the residence where we are located.
We are happy to cater to your food allergies or food preferences, please call us directly so that we can confirm with you the substituting dishes or ingredients. Private cooking classes can be organized to meet your party’s need.
