Absolutely loved it. Know that it is intended for people with little or no experience in making Thai food so do not attend if you are a chef at a famous LA restaurant chain. The tour guides were friendly, helpful, and taught basic stuff without making you feel like an utter fool in the kitchen. All the equipment was top-notch, the place was out-of-this-world, and ample times was given to make food and socialize.
Very well executed from pickup to drop off. The meals we cooked were all well planned and delicious. The cooking class was on the most beautiful scenic site and the instructors were simply lovely. They even send you photos taken during the class which is a thoughtful and gesture. I could not recommend this experience enough.
Excellent tour! Great way to learn about the ingredients that goes into Thai food, the difference in the various peppers and how to safely handle them. The different herbs that change the flavor of the dish, by the intensity of the flavor, like seasoning Soy Sauce, Galangal vs Ginger, different Basil's, once you taste this, you understand what you are missing.
Also this is an individual cooling class so each person prepare their dish, A group activity was grating coconut to make coconut cream.
The cooking techniques apply also to all cooking, like heating pans, checking oil temperature, the thing I found I really need at home is a Wok burner.
The staff was great, the setting was excellent, with garden, partially open air classroom and kitchen, excellent afternoon, fellowship, meeting new people, maybe from your home country. Different than museum or temple tour as everyone is focused on cooking and tasting the final product.
To Viator, Please try to list this as a Morning and Afternoon class, I asked and did afternoon, this way you/I did a Temple tour in the morning, got back to hotel, short break and was ready for pickup for the Baipai class. With distance to the school, Bangkok traffic, and if the class runs a bit long, the afternoon session lets you do more tours, if time in Bangkok is at a premium.
Very good class. Very well organised and relaxed for the participants. Well worth the money.
So helpful and nice team!! Everything prepared according to my allergies, felt safe and had no problems afterwards. Beautiful surroundings and clockwork organized. I highly recommend this cooking class :
This was certainly one of the highlight of my Bangkok trip. The Baipai Thai Cooking School goes out of its way to give you an amazing experience. This tranquil, beautiful site feels like it and #39;s far away from the city but, in truth, it and #39;s under an hour even with notorious Bangkok traffic.
Recommended this cooking class to other people and they all LOVED it also
Definitely one of the highlights of my Bangkok trip, a great experience, easy to follow instructions by the Chef. I would definitely recommend.
Excellent facility, great instruction, and great quality food we made ourselves! Learned a lot - how to use coconut milk vs cream effectively. Also how to use lemongrass, which we have growing at home. Excited to do these recipes again at home!

This was fabulous. Very professional and well-organized class held in a beautiful facility with both decorative and herb gardens. Not far outside Bangkok. Great introduction to classic Thai ingredients and food prep. We made five dishes from scratch, down to shredding the coconut on a traditional 'rabbit' shredder and pounding all ingredients for the curries by hand, and were sent home with a recipe book and photographs. Would absolutely recommend, and plan to do it again with my teenage daughter on my next trip.
