The academy

The professional culinary training classrooms are new and fully air-conditioned. Each chef student has his own training station complete with gas fryers, granite food preparation area, sink, and eating area. At the head of the training stations is the instructor’s demonstration station where all recipes are first prepared and demonstrated by the chef instructor.

The academy is in Bangkok, the capital of Thai culinary cooking and the home of world-renowned Thai dishes. Who would know Thai cooking better than them, and where else would you go to properly learn Thai cooking? Their Thai cooking is not fusion or prepared with substitute ingredients. They use authentic ingredients and teach you how Thai dishes are supposed to taste. Practice makes perfect, and this is exactly what you will do here. You will learn 25-30 professional Thai dishes weekly.
