After breakfast, travel by minivan to one of the leading Thai cooking schools in Khao Lak. On arrival, you will be warmly welcomed by the professional chef and the culinary crew. After a brief introduction, set off to the local wet market. Wander through the stalls to learn about the locally grown herbs, spices and fiery chillis and their uses in Thai cooking. It’s important to get to know these aromatic herbs as many will be added to your dishes to infuse them with flavour.

Back at the cooking school, start with a theory session and cooking demonstration by the chef. Then it is time to roll up your sleeves and don an apron.
