All our classes are private tuition you can do at any time, no need to wait or learn with a group which will be less effective and productive as  superior result Thai cooking needs close attention as there are many between the line and the tutor needs to keep an eye on each of your cooking processe to ensure perfect result as a good example for you to continue at home/workplace.

What skills  you will gain from  Krua Thai.: Our answer is:  You will gain essential process each step of cooking, even the way you stir can affect the end product.   Appearance, aroma, texture, consistency which you can’t get from the internet or books.  You will learn very proper to understand each ingredient, then the blending/balancing techniques, processes of cooking, tasting result, problem-solving to ensure you gain the confidence to go solo cooking to impress your customers/family/friends ie. curry.  This one dish can take up to 2.5 hours, you will make your own curry paste professionally, then blending, balancing techniques without cheating pretending to get students to pound the curry paste and adding ready-made curry paste in like some cooking classes at a cheaper price.  Krua Thai homemade curry paste is by far more superior than ready-made from supermarket shelves.   99.% of Thai restaurants in UK.  buy curry paste from supermarket shelves.   We leave 1 % for those restaurants to inform us that they make their own curry paste if they wish we will proudly add and promote their names on our website.

Many clients have questioned and  wondered what  cost will be involved:   Each lesson: All fees included 20% tax, prep work staff, cleaning staff before and after, sourcing ingredients, imported ingredients, high-quality ingredients ready for your class, 1 load of washing, 1 load of dishwasher, heat and light, packaging food to take home, chef tutor.   Krua Thai has 70% (professional and consultancy work. 30% non-pro teaching.  We have plenty of budgets for everyone to get it right and perform the best result every single time.

Many people can cook Thai food BUT to which level.   If you are serious in Thai cookery or wish to be a step ahead and learn a very proper without fail why not join Krua Thai and impress with our total service delivery that well worth of your long-term investment.  What the media says (click)

NOTE:   Due to intensive training/ full use of tuition to ensure an effective and productive day for each learner.  No, alcohol will be served by the School and use up the tuition time.  The whole point to come to Krua Thai is to learn as much as possible.  We believe you can easily afford a very wine at home.  However, corporate event or party please feel free bring your own alcohol as we don’t have a license.   We have all types of glasses for you.
