Bai Pai Cooking School Bangkok Reviews
Professional Set-up and Good Instruciton Apr 16, 2009
If you want a slightly more upscale cooking school, then Bai Pai Cooking School should be your choice. At only 1800 Baht, you get a professionally printed recipes and a polished teaching technique in a comfortable setting.
Transportation of provided at no extra charge. Once you arrive at the school, you are greeted and given a glass of refreshing lemon grass tea while the liaison gives you instructions and an apron.
The class area is located downstairs. At first you will sit around a large table so you can watch the cook as she demonstrates a technique. A large mirror is suspended and angled above her so you get a clear view of what she is doing. After the cook/teacher goes through the steps and prepares a dish, everyone gets to taste it before working on your own recipe. Some things are already done for you, like frying the Pandanus Chicken and measuring out certain ingredients. Alternatives are shown so you can find a substitute for an ingredient back home.
The school is very well organized. I recommend it for those interested in learning how to cook Thai food, but don't necessarily want to go through the process of making things from scratch.
Note: The liaison takes photos while you are working and will email them to you later.
