BLUE ELEPHANT COOKERY SCHOOL

Location: Khwaeng Yan Nawa, Khet Sathon, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10120, Thailand

A day at the Blue Elephant Cooking School will commence with a visit to the morning market accompanied by your instructor, where you will learn to carefully choose the right ingredients for your own home cooking. Following the instructor-led class, the session ends with a delightful meal in the restaurant where you will sample your own cooking.

Private Classes: Start from 220 USD per person for a half day
