While a visit to Koh Samui may seem like paradise, SITCA's curriculum is down-to-earth, comprehensive and above all enjoyable. All chefs are Thai experts with years of experience cooking Thai, and a love of their art. Whether avid home cook or aspiring professional, you will learn all the skills you need to cook one of Asia's most varied and fascinating cuisines.
If your interest is simply in learning more about what goes into Thai food dishes in order to enhance your knowledge and enjoyment when dining out, don't hesitate to join us. Whatever your aspirations, whatever your level, because our classes are kept small, your individual needs will be addressed with as much attention as you require.
Thai food lovers enjoy a special bonus. We purchase all our produce, fish, and meat daily from the local market, so you will not be not only preparing, but also enjoying some of the best cuisine that Southern Thailand has to offer.
SITCA's menus change for every day of the week, and most recipes can be adapted for vegetarians. Our twice daily 3 hour class starts with the preparation of one of our famous home made Thai curry pastes, and is followed by instruction in how to prepare 3 more dishes. There is a different paste and Thai curry dish for each day (Monday-Saturday.) The meal follows immediately after class and the fruits of your labors will be some of the most sumptuous Thai food you will have in Thailand.
