Intermediate/Advanced Cookery courses

Posted by turbot on 9/11/2012 at 08:05

Hi.
I have been to Thailand a few times and love it. This forum has always been very helpful (thank you Travelfish) so am hoping I can get help about non-basic cookery courses...
I cook alot at home (London) and have done a couple of thai cookery courses in Thailand (Time for Lime in Ko Lanta was very good)...
What I really want to do is a MORE advanced course than an introductory - "this is galangal, this is how to make a penang curry paste" etc. - kind of thing.
I want to expand my repetoire and understand more about cooking techniques and sauces...
Can anyone help/point me in the right direction?
I will be in BKK after a week on the beach in Koh Bulon Lae from 13th-19th January.
Thanks.
Ben

written by someone who does know something about food in Thailand. there's mentioned of Bo.lan offering courses that 'vary in skill level', & a few that offer private courses (where you might be able to arrange in advance for something that meets your needs).

I found this thread on egullet.

I am a pretty decent cook and the program mentioned in post 10 of that thread stood out and caught my interest.

Unfortunately it is not in BKK.
