The Pantawan Way
of Thai Cooking
A perfect introduction for the beginning chef, a half-day cooking class may bring out the cook you
may never believe was in you. A team of cooking professionals show and guide you with
the principles for preparing lunch or dinner during this half-day course.
WHY THIS TOUR?
What is there not to love about Thai food? Flavourful and with a plethora of cooking options to deliver it to your plate the way you like it, the world has seen Thai kitchen as one of the most favoured among its citizens. While eating your favourite dish, spiced and seasoned the way you like it, takes you to culinary heaven, preparing dishes is a whole different aspect of Thai cuisine.
But when brought with fun, a good dose of willingness to get your dish right and guided by industry professionals, Thai cooking may even turn out to be more fun-filled than actually tasting it. In line with this philosophy, we have teamed up with a skilful team of kitchen professionals who have turned an old wooden house into a centre of culinary creativity and education.
