Full Day Thai Cooking Class


SKU: N/A Categories: , ,


This action-packed Full Day Thai Class will teach you about the flavours and ingredients that make Thai cuisine so unique.

You’ll learn about the herbs and spices that are fundamental to Thai cooking, and you’ll get to create your own dishes using these ingredients.

Thai cuisine is famous for its complex flavours, blending sour, sweet, salty, bitter, and spicy tastes. It uses both fresh and dry spices, and seasoning and preparation are just as important as cooking. Our Thai cooking class gives you the chance to explore the textures, colours, and flavours of this unique cuisine.


In this class, you’ll learn to create dishes including:

  • Thai Red Curry – a delicious and spicy dish made with a blend of fresh herbs and spices, coconut milk, and your choice of protein or vegetables.
  • Jasmine Rice – a fragrant and flavourful rice commonly used in Thai cuisine, typically served as a side dish to accompany curries and other dishes.
  • Thai Fish Cakes – a popular Thai snack or appetizer made with ground fish mixed with herbs and spices, then deep-fried until crispy.
  • Spring Rolls – a crispy and savoury snack filled with vegetables, noodles, and/or meat.
  • Red Chicken Curry with Bamboo shoots

We will provide everything from the ingredients to the equipment and chef. Contact us directly to discuss a private class.


This class is suitable for vegetarians, vegans, and those with gluten intolerance, and you will have the opportunity to learn alternative recipes to suit your dietary needs.

“I gave the half day Thai  cookery class to my husband with trepidation, but I was over the moon to see how much he enjoyed it and how he was motivated to come home and cook – he wants to come back for the advanced class.”

“Having already done the One Day Thai class, I can’t believe the dishes we created. First of all, we actually did all the cooking – just like last time, which is a departure from a lot of the cookery classes I’ve been on. The recipes are all original and authentic – hard to imagine you’d find such authentic cookery outside of Thailand, and even many Thai restaurants aren’t this real. I just feel I’ve learned a lot and built up my knowledge of Thai food.”

“I really loved the first One Day Thai class and I didn’t think this class could beat it, but I’ve enjoyed this one even more on account of the fact that we made two dishes that are really much better than I remember them in Thailand. The techniques and tips in the class are just amazing. Thank you for yet again another day of pleasurable cooking, and what great views to look out to all day – there was even a peacock in the garden.”

“I attended the Thai cookery class and I thought the information on all the fresh ingredients was great. The delivery of the class was superb – 10 out of 10! I also loved the intimate ‘home’ style of teaching.”

“I thought the Thai class today was at exactly the right level and pace. The delivery of the class was excellent – there was a good balance of background knowledge of spices, teaching and hands on cooking. It was a really relaxed atmosphere and I will recommend it to friends!”

Faqs (16)

Can I bring a spectator with me?

I’m afraid not. All attendees must be paying participants in the class.

Do you have facilities to purchase equipment on the day?

I am allergic to certain foods/ I have a special dietary requirement. Will this cause a problem?

We try our best to accommodate for special dietary requirements. Please notify us of your dietary requirements within 24 hours of booking. Please email us cook@thecookingacademy.co.uk or call us on 01923 778880 if you would like to know whether your allergy can be accommodated on a particular course at least 28 days prior to the class. It is the customer’s responsibility to inform us of any dietary requirements at the time of booking for your health and well being.

I am an experienced cook, are all the courses suitable for me?

All courses are suitable for all levels as the classes are based more specifically on the cuisine rather than skill. The Chef will ensure that you have the assistance required to enjoy the day and really develop your cooking skills. If you are an experienced cook, you may particularly enjoy our Advanced classes. Please contact us if you would like further guidance.

I can’t handle spicy food; will your classes be too hot for me?

In our cookery classes, you get to make your own food to suit your own palate, so although we provide guidelines, you can adapt each recipe to suit your taste, as spicy or as not spicy as you’d like.

I’m a complete beginner, what class should I do?

Our cookery classes are not based on skill as such; they are all hands on and taught by an expert chef who can lead you through the cooking processes so even a beginner should be fine on our classes. However, if you want to start at the very beginning, and develop an understanding of food hygiene, knife skills and safety in the kitchen, our beginner’s cookery class would be the one for you.

I’m gluten intolerant, what classes can I attend?

Our Indian, Thai, and Nutritional classes can be easily altered and tailored to suit a gluten free diet. Please just ensure you make us aware of this at the time of booking.

If I purchase this cookery class voucher can the recipient exchange it for another class of their preference?

Yes, vouchers can be exchange for other classes, if there is a short-fall in the value, they can pay the difference. If the voucher is for a greater amount they will be able to make purchases on the day to use up the full value of the voucher. Alternatively, you can purchase an open voucher that can be redeemed against any class of the equivalent value.

Is lunch provided in this class?

Yes, lunch is provided (and cooked by you!). If you have any special dietary requirement please make those known to us at the time of your booking.

Is there anything I need to bring to the class?

Yes, you will need to bring some Tupperware/plastic containers (quantity will be specified in your booking confirmation letter sent via email) with you to take home some of the delicious recipes you will cook on the day. This will also be highlighted in your booking confirmation letter. Everything else, including an apron will be provided.

Is there parking available on site?

Yes, there is ample car parking available on site – free of charge.

What is the minimum age to attend a class?

Anyone from the age of 13+ can attend our cookery classes, if you’re not sure which class would be best please do call us on 01923 778880 so we can help.

What should I wear/take with me to the course?

Please wear comfortable clothes and comfortable shoes (no flip-flops or open toed shoes). We will provide you with everything you need for the day, all we ask for you to bring are tupperware containers.

Will I eat the food I make?

There will be an opportunity to eat all the dishes that you make. All participants sit down together for lunch to enjoy the food they have made in the morning, and will be able to take home the food you make in the afternoon to share with family or friends.

Will I have food left over to take home with me?

Yes! On most of our classes, you will be able to take a selection of the delicious food you have made home with you. This does not apply to the half day Indian class.
