After eating amazing dish after amazing dish, I knew I wanted to leave Thailand knowing how to bring some of the flavors I'd experienced into my own kitchen.
Silom Thai Cooking School was the perfect place to do that. Gung, our teacher, was wonderfully charming, infectiously funny, and exceptionally knowledgeable. We started our class in a market, learning about different Thai ingredients. My knowledge about garlic alone quadrupled! We then returned to the cozy cooking school where we cooked tom yum soup, pad thai, green curry, laab gai and rubies in coconut milk. Vegetarian options were available.
I think if everything was portioned out for me and I never had to do any dishes, I'd always be an amazing cook. Still, everything we created was delicious and the recipe book we were given included additional dishes and ingredient explanations. For an incredibly reasonable cost ($30, and they'll refund you for your transportation to the school), I had a really wonderful afternoon with some amazing people. It was so fun, a few of us solo travelers decided to continue exploring together and ended up at a Thai boxing match, but that's another story....

Best cooking class in Bangkok!
I really enjoyed the cooking class at Silom Thai cooking school! The market tour was great and the cooking class itself super fun. The instructor was also very entertaining. You should book in advance because they are booked out very fast. We had to book for the end of our trip and we booked through www.cookly.me because we could book and pay online. Definitely recommend this class! :)
