Tourists, local residents and anyone interested in a unique and positive personal learning experience, are welcome to join our Private Classes. We cater to a variety of people with different skill sets, from novices to professional chefs. Our Private Classes are equipped with all the necessary facilities to organize interactive and engaging sessions. Our instructors are warm and friendly, offering the right amount of encouragement, with personal attention to every student.
To get a handle on authentic Thai cooking, we recommend taking up a six-day private course, for a holistic culinary experience. All participants will graduate with a Blue Elephant Cooking School Certificate and will receive a ready-to-cook mini pack as souvenir and also keep the apron.

Private Class Menu
Students participating in a regular Private Class (Half / Full day) have the liberty of choosing the requisite number of dishes from the cooking menu, depending on the number of days they wish to attend.
At our Vegetable Carving class, expert Chefs teach students the intricate art and secrets of fruit and vegetable cutting and carving. This skill enhances food presentation, and is invaluable for making an impact at lunch or dinner parties. We recommend this class for people passionate about food presentation, specially for private and large gatherings.
Vegetable carving has both half and full day classes. The half day class can be scheduled either in the morning or afternoon.
At our Dessert Class, students learn the art of creating a variety of authentic Thai desserts, that have been mastered and perfected by our expert chefs. We recommend this class for people passionate about crowning their authentic Thai cooking menu with something sweet to match.
The Dessert Class is a half or a full day course, and can be scheduled accordingly. Participants may reach out to the cooking school directly, to choose from range of recommended menus.
Ancient Thai Cuisine Cooking Course
Our Ancient Thai Cuisine Cooking Class enables both amateur and professional cooks learn how to make ten of the country’s long forgotten dishes such as Ma Auan, Kaeng Mumba and Lon Taujiew Poo that were popular and readily available in times gone by. We recommend all passionate Thai cuisine chefs, novices or enthusiasts to take this course.
Amongst the menus in this Class is Massaman Curry, a dish that King Rama II described in his poem quoted below:
“Mussaman curry is like a lover
As peppery and fragrant
as the cumin seed
Its exciting allure arouses
I am urged to seek its source”
While Chef Nooror was privileged to host a TV series with Professor Sisamorn Krongpan, a well-known Thai food “guru”, she learned the art of Ancient Thai Cuisine.
The Ancient Thai Cooking Class is a one day class, which can be scheduled on any convenient day, from Monday to Sunday. It has its very own menu of 10 unique dishes, that are not part of our Daily Cooking Menu.
