Thai cooking course

No comments

With the massive growth in tourism to Thailand over the last decade, legions of visitors have developed a love of traditional Thai cuisine and taken it back to their home countries. The fiery spices and uniquely addictive tastes of Thai food have become a firm favorite with a generation of food lovers whose previous knowledge of Asian cuisine mostly expanded to a few Chinese or Indian dishes.
To cater for this massive interest in Thai cuisine, the last few years have seen an explosion in the number of Thai restaurants worldwide. In certain countries there seems to be a Thai restaurant on every high street. Even pubs and bars in places like the United Kingdom now favor offering Thai cuisine. Of course, with limited numbers of Thais living overseas, demand for people able to cook traditional Thai cuisine has far outstripped demand. Catering professionals from every corner of the globe now descend on Thailand to sit alongside holidaymakers taking a variety of Thai cookery courses.
Whether it is a half-day introduction, a weeklong course of substance, or a full fledged professional course leading to a certificate or some other form of qualification, Thailand now has a cookery course to cater for any need – all in English, and all delivered by experts, and all turning you into an expert in Thai cuisine! Below are some of the offerings currently available that give visitors an insight into the intricacies of Thai cooking:
Dusit Thani Hotel
