My husband and I just got back from spending the day with Bee’s Thai Cooking Class in Phuket. It was a special experience, and Bee was a delight as our teacher. We enjoyed shopping at the local market and then proceeded to her home for our cooking class. Everything we made there was so delicious....

Why Taking a Cooking Classes in Phuket is a Must-Do

Connect with the Island of Phuket

Phuket cooking classes are built and taught to not just deliver you a recipe to review but to also show you the island through the food. Phuket is more than just a place of beaches. Phuket is an island paradise full of sea food, tropical rainforests, and close ties with lands far and near. The food reflects that. Taking a Phuket cooking class connects you with the land under your feet to what is grown locally and the lands across the waters to what was traded and incorporated into the cuisine.

Connect with the People Through a Cooking Class

Phuket cooking classes don't just teach you about food. The classes show you how the people live, what is important to them and what they hold dear. Phuket cooking classes teach you what it means to live on the island and use the resources available. You can understand how the individuals have lived and how they have grown over the decades and through trading with forgeign nations.

Bring Home A Slice Of Thai Culture

Most importantly, Phuket cooking classes don't end at the island's edge. You take the trade home and share it with others. The culture of food and passion of the cuisine lives on and through that dissemination of skill and flavor. You can help keep the traditions alive and maintain the cultural connection to the people. Don't take home a tourist trinket. Take home a skill that you can offer your friends and family.
