One of the most distinctive cuisines in the global gastronomy map, Thai cooking demonstrates intricacy and attention to texture, colour, and balance in its presentation, and embraces the use of ingredients which have medicinal value as well as good flavour. Traditional Thai cuisine has been heavily influenced by the neighbouring countries with whom it shares an ethnic history as well as the lingering imprint of Western missions, resulting in strong regional variations. Explore some favourites through cooking classes and market tours in Bangkok and Chiang Mai!

We will start our exploration in Bangkok, which is equally famous for its cultural monuments as its vivid street life. We will sample both with a cooking class, market visits and tours of two of the most famous temples. Next, we head north to Ayutthaya, the former capital of Thailand and now home to some of the most magnificent ruins in SE Asia. Ayutthaya is steeped in centuries of art and culture of which cuisine plays a large part, so we will also enjoy a cooking class with a local chef on board a traditional teak barge while taking in the majestic views of this region. Moving north to Chiang Mai,we will experience the influences of Laos, Burma, Cambodia and Vietnam on northern Thai dishes.

"Heidi’s tour was the first time I have spent any time in the Chinatown shops and I definitely felt like I was exploring, but with having a hands-on expert right there! She was extremely knowledgeable on the subject of Asian food. There was not one question that she could not answer, often going into some depth in order to provide more than just a simple answer. The knowledge she so readily imparts makes her teaching very enjoyable. She doesn’t guard chef ‘secrets’; she seems happy to share all that she knows and can impart."
