May Kaidee's Cooking School is run by a famous Thai chef and specialises in vegetarian and vegan dishes. The original cooking school started in Bangkok in 1988 and runs simultaneous courses in Chiang Mai and Bangkok daily. May Kaidee's runs two classes a day which includes an introduction and small talk about how to make chilli paste and the use of Thai herbs and spices. Then participants learn how to cook 8 different recipes and taste their dishes. After cooking and eating participants will then get to see a traditional Thai dancing show and are served complimentary mango and sticky rice dessert. The morning and afternoon classes vary slightly with an introduction to raw food desserts in the morning and a focus on cold recipes such as salads in the afternoon.
The most popular class, Thai cooking, runs two times daily at 9:00 and 14:00 and cost 1,500 Baht per person. It is advised to book ahead during high season as the classes are quite popular. May Kaidee's Cooking School also has an express class which is only two hours and includes three dishes and dessert. The express classes cost 1,000 Baht and run at 15:00 and 17:00 daily. In Bangkok May Kaidee also offers 5 and 10 day cooking courses for those who really want to dive deep into Thai cuisine, as well as a one day raw food workshop.
