Cooking classes c
5th April, 2006
I'm taking a five month trip to SE asia and Food is my focus. I want to spend the majority of my time eating and learing the cuisines of the regions. If anybody knows of any classes I would love the input. If anyone knows of any restaurants that wouldn't mind a culinary grad volunteering and hanging out in the kitchen that would also be awsome

There's dozens of cooking courses you'll come across in Chiang Mai -- too many to point a blunt stick at. SITCA on Chaweng beach, Ko Samui gets very very good reports.
In Laos, one course that may be of interest is the tasting course run at Tamarind: A taste of Lao run by our old Laos correspondent Caroline -- we've heard only good things about it.
In Phnom Penh, Cambodia, look into the course run at Frizz Cafe. You may also want to swing by Romdeng -- classic Khmer cuisine.

We were very pleased with the one-day cooking course offered by Gap Guest House in Chiang Mai (Rachadamnoen Ave Soi 4). It runs from about 10 am until after 4 pm, and includes a cookbook, visit to a local market, food and lots of other great stuff for about 900 baht per person. They also offer an advanced course if you want more detail. Other options we saw in Chiang Mai looked similar.
When in Luang Prabang, definitely check in with Caroline at Tamarind: A Taste of Lao. She's a wealth of info and very excited about exactly the kinds of things you've mentioned above. Check the Luang Prabang restaurant listing for Tamarind on the site for details and contact info. Regards.

I would recommend the Chiang Mai cooking school, think it was about 900 baht for a day cooking course. There are also week courses for professional cooks or for people who are really into Thai cuisine.

I know of a cafe in Luang Prabang that would love to have a culinary grad hanging around in it's kitchens... or with the owners who have so many ideas for exciting new food related developments and not even nearly half the time they'd like to work on them! Please stick your head in to Tamarind, or contact us via email (email@example.com) before you get here. I think you would probably find Luang Prabang a great spot to hang out in for a period of time.
Thank you also to somtam2000 and exacto for the recommendations!

Oops, sorry I gave the wrong email address for all you enthusiastic would-be helpers at Tamarind! It's firstname.lastname@example.org and we look forward to meeting you!
