Miss your favorite Thai food? I offer online virtual Thai Cooking Classes
I love eating Thai food and teaching people how to cook Thai food too. Unfortunately, the Coronavirus has meant that it has been difficult for a lot of people to come to visit my beautiful country since the end of March 2020. It's looking as though people will be able to start coming to Thailand again over the next few months, but still many people may not be able to come over to take a cooking class with me hereat my cooking school on Koh Tao. If you are missing the spicy flavors of Thai cuisine, not to worry I offer people the option to also take an online virtual Thai cooking class with me from their own home. These online virtual cook-along Thai cooking classes are private classes where I will be your chef cooking the same dish as you so I can guide you through how to make each of the Thai dishes no matter what your cooking skills level is. If you want to have a few friends round to cook together and then enjoy what you have cooked that is no problem.
So how does taking online virtual cooking classes work?
Well, it's unlikely you'll be able to sign up and start your online Thai cooking class straight away as there is a little more planning that we'll need to do.
First I suggest contacting me to let me know that you are interested in taking a Thai cooking class online so that we can make arrangements to take an online class. You can do this either by email, the WhatsApp or Messenger links on my website.
Then we can arrange a time for your virtual Thai cooking course that works well for both yourself and me. As there is likely to be a time difference between your country and here.
Then you will also need to decide on your favorite Thai food dishes that you would like to learn to make on the online Thai cooking course.
This is an important step so that we can check to make sure the ingredients that you need for particular Thai dishes you can get before the course. Some people may not be able to get all of the Thai ingredients. If this is the case usually, there will be an alternative that can be used. If we find that there is something that you can't get that is vital to the recipe then you can select another dish to make, a good example of this is Ka Pow (Thai Holy Basil Ocimum tenuiflorum) which is the main ingredient for Pad Ka Pow, which is a very popular Basil and Chili dish in Thailand. As this basil is a bit spicy and so trying to substiute it with a different basil like sweet basil or Italian basil give the dish a completely different flavour. Most ingrients are fairly easy to source like bell pepper, light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, coconut milk and Jasmine rice. However some ingredients like fish sauce, oyster sauce, tamarind paste, palm sugar and Thai basil may not be as easy to source depending on the country you live in. The same with the equipment you have available in your kitchen as not everyone may have all of the kitchen utensils like a mortar and pestle, but they may have a food processor which will be needed if you chose to make one of the Thai curries as I will show you how to make the curry paste from scratch. Also if you have any special dietary restrictions for example people who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet or food allergies, for example peanuts or shellfish.
- Before the lesson, we can also arrange a quick test to ensure that the video call link up is working all fine before the class on your laptop, tablet or mobile device.
I've usually used Skype for my online Thai cooking classes, but there are other options available. Since the Coronavirus, there are a lot more popular options for video calling so I'm open to trying new ones. I may need to adjust my set up so that I can have my 2 cameras running here so that you can see me and what I cooking.
- Then once everything is set and we are all ready for your cooking class then you can pay before we start using PayPal.
