Really good experience, first we went to a Thai market to get the ingredients and then we made three dishes, which we then ate. The cooking school has a really nice atmosphere and the chefs were great!

I was expecting a very sterile, very up-tight, white wall and stainless steel experience. What I got was a very informative, very fun cooking experience set in a very asian themed open air, cooking suite. We were first picked up at our hotels and driven to a huge, very clean open air food wholesale market in northern Bangkok. Imagine your home grocery store without all the boxed processed stuff, but with ten times the produce and meat options. Everything looked as though it wasn't more than twelve hours old. I was envious. Here is were we met Julie, our cooking assistant. She took us on a tour while purchasing some of the key ingredients we would be using that day. Some of my fellow cooking students purchased a couple fresh fruit items to bring back to their hotels for snacking after class.
Aftering the market tour we were driven to the cooking school. Imagine Mr. Miyagi's house in The Karate Kid, but ten times the size. Very peaceful, very beautiful asian design with a garden. Open air was important for best ventilation. We gathered around this large demonstration center with an overhead mirror to see what was going on. We each had our own stock ingredients in front of us, a combination of spices oils and items purchased from the market that day. Step-by-step we were shown what to do. Our head chef, Nxy, was a very experienced Thai cooking chef and our assistant, Julie, took us through the recipe. Both Nxy and July were informative and entertaining. In the end we ate what we made and it was amazing.
If you love to eat thai food and love to cook, this very user-friendly cooking experience is for you.

Only high praises for this tour. Class was fantastic. Made recipes easy to follow. Loved that we were able to cook and then eat our food. Short tour which is great if you want the afternoon to relax. Visiting market first was unique experience. Highly recommend this tour!

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at the Baipai Cooking School! June did a phenomenal job leading the class, and the experience to prepare our own 4-course Thai meal was such a delight. Probably the best Pad Thai we had our entire trip!
