See what it’s like at Krua Thai

The Krua Thai Cookery School based in Edinburgh, Scotland attracts students from all over the world who wish to discover the trade secrets of traditional Thai Cookery.

My aim is to provide traditional Thai cookery techniques and recipes of a quality that you would expect to find in good restaurants in Thailand.  Also, to improve the standards of food presentation and fruit and vegetable carving, which is little known in this country.

Thailand is known throughout the world for its charming hospitality and the Krua Thai Cookery School aims to maintain this wonderful tradition.  The teaching staff at Krua Thai are formally and highly trained professionals who have more than 20 years’ experience in the real world of restaurant and commercial catering.  We are committed to offering you a unique level of knowledge that is seldom available from books or college courses.  The course is set up in a way that I myself would love to be taught, making the whole experience effective and productive.  As a chef myself, we offer you a lot of steak with little sauce.  I hope this is what you are looking for.

We have been contracted as a specialist chef to business executives and a variety of top-flight clients across European countries to prepare and present Thai banquets and theme buffets for both national and international events.  We have also trained many high calibre chefs both national and international i.e. development chefs, food technologists, private chefs, butlers, house managers, private chefs from a private yacht, and executive/sous chefs from chain hotels, restaurants and bars. We cater to their exact needs to help them enhance their careers and get ahead of their competitors.

I am very confident that the Krua Thai Cookery School is the perfect place for anyone wanting to obtain more information about Thai food and learn the very best techniques of professional Thai cookery, either to enhance their careers or simply to add to their own personal cooking skills to impress their family and friends.  Our recipes have not just been handed down from our mothers and grandmothers, but have been researched and tested repeatedly to ensure that each of them satisfies the 3 key vital senses of sight, aroma and taste before we pass them on to our students.  We offer both theory and practice to ensure every one of our students receives the optimum training possible.

We promise to reveal our trade secrets.  Why not join us and be our special guest for a day while you learn from a willing and enthusiastic tutor.  You will be amazed at how much you can learn in just a few hours as our clients say in testimonials page.  All our students are part of the Krua Thai family and they are most welcome to contact the School at any time. I look forward to welcoming you.

Swadee ka.
