One of the better known cooking schools in Bangkok is May Kaidee’s. Situated a few hundred yards from the Khaosan Road, it has become popular with tourists who wish to improve their culinary skills. May specializes in vegetarian dishes and the various classes are run in an entertaining, friendly and professional manner. Lessons take place in the restaurant and, of course, in the kitchen, while most also include a visit to the local market. There are several cooking stations in the kitchen where students often work in pairs, aided by the special course book given as a memento, with May in attendance to help and advise. The different courses offer variety and cover such topics as how to make chilli paste, how to use Thai herbs and spices to best advantage, how to make Tom Yum Soup, Masama Curry and Pad Thai among others.
