Courses at the Thai Orchid Cooking School are based on the philosophy that a meal should be a beautiful thing, made with love and shared with love. The school was started by "A" and her family who have the same dream of sharing their love of Thai cooking with those who desire to learn how to cook delicious Thai food but also to experience the culture and poetry of Thai cuisine.

We went in as rookies, and left with the experiences to make us want to cook several dinners for our friends and families. The teaching staff is patient, funny, and knowledgeable, you can be sure that you will have fun, and learn so much here.
