Join your host Somkid in his kitchen and participate in a private, hands-on cooking class at his condo with an amazing view of Bangkok. His time as a professional chef really shines through as he shows you how to cut each ingredient not only to bring out its flavor but also to serve in an aesthetically pleasing way! Some of the dishes you may expect include vegetable tempura made with flowers, colorful tamarind soup, larp (minced meat salad), and much more. He also exudes his creativity in inventing curries of all sorts. End your meal with a sweet Thai dessert such as khaoniao mamuang (mango on sticky rice). This is a wonderful opportunity to learn from a professional local and catch a glimpse of true Thai culture through its cuisine!
A professional chef for over 15 years, Somkid promises diners delicious and unique Thai dishes, recipes of which have been handed down to him by his mother. Somkid was born and raised in the province of Trat located in Eastern Thailand. It is no wonder Somkid, otherwise known as “Chef Kid,” is the amazing cook he is today, as his mother owned her own local Thai food stall and his father was a fisherman. Still in his childhood he realized he had a passion for food as he spent quality time helping his mother prepare delectable dishes. Somkid then moved to work in restaurants in the beachside city of Pattaya and has been an award-winning chef ever since. Somkid is very keen on food display, and makes sure that every dish you create is beautifully presented. The time in-between creating each dish will be spent eating delicious fresh fruit and enjoying Somkid’s radiant personality and view of his micro garden and of the sprawling city and beyond.
