Why Choose This Experience?

If you want to discover how to cook classic Thai dishes with a creative twist, then this is the class for you. Many cooking schools include market tours, we are actually located within Bangkok's famous Flower Market! Expique operates our own cooking school under the brand "The Market Experience", and offers a truly unique and memorable Thai Cooking Experience.


During this class you will learn to make 4 classic Thai dishes each with our own twist

The class starts with an introduction to the core ingredients used before practicing you chopping skills whist making your first dish – a Royal Thai appetizer.

We will then break for a chance to explore the market and along the way we will pick up some of the ingredients needed and also taste some local snacks. We are located overlooking the market and all we have to do is walk up and down the stairs!

When we get back to the school we will learn 3 more dishes and finish with eating them all for lunch. If you have space at the end we have dessert.

We will also serve a variety of drinks to accompany each dish including a few of our own signature creations.

During each menu item our instructor will introduce how you can adapt your dishes to cater for various dietary requirements or adjust based on ingredients you can find at home.

By the end of the class you should feel comfortable enough to replicate the meal at home. After the class we will give you access to our online resources where we have cooking videos for all the dishes plus lots of extra stuff.

Dishes may change based on season and availability.
