Cooking (Gin Dee)

Learn to cook authentic vegetarian Thai food

Cooking Course – Gin Dee, “eat well”

The concept of the course comes from Krit the instructor who believes that making and eating food should be a relaxed, joyful and delicious experience. Krit will teach you not only how to cook the food but also share a little folklore about the dishes, and some of the medicinal properties of the ingredients. The Gin Dee U Dee concept of eating well and living well are reflected on throughout the course.

Course Details:

We offer two kinds of cooking programs: 1. All your Thai favorites 2. Thai favorites and local seasonal specialties.
