Today you will experience a rather unique Thai Cooking Experience which includes a scenic boat trip, market tour and lunch outside of Bangkok.
Leaving after breakfast transfer to Bang Wa BTS Station and drive you to a local market, located next to a Buddhist temple and the Tha Chin River. The market is known for its wide variety of vegetables and Thai snacks. As you shop together, your Thai host will show you regional fruit and vegetables at her preferred vendors in the market. After learning about the local produce and farming community you will board a boat that you host steers herself! Enjoy the river breeze and passing views of local homes and lush river vegetation during your 30-min boat ride to her tropical riverside home.
You will be greeted with a welcome drink before joining in a professional kitchen for your cooking class. You host will share her deep knowledge of Thai herbs and spices and passion for cooking as you cook together in her studio kitchen that is also used by her other cooks for the restaurant she runs from her home. Be prepared to chop vegetables, pound spices, and laugh as you cook together with this charming and fun-loving host!
Dine on her creative Thai dishes based on her family recipes in an air-conditioned,modern, glass dining room overlooking the river. Your meal which will be accompanied by local beer may include dishes such as Gai phad grachhay (fried chicken marinated in herbs and topped with fried finger root) or Gang phed ped yang (red curry with roasted duck, pineapple, pumpkin and sweet basil). Your host is not only passionate about cooking but also presenting dishes artfully with flowers and herbs from her garden.
After the experience transfer to your hotel arriving back in the middle of the afternoon .
