Welcome to Original Thai Cooking Classes in Melbourne

Original Thai Cooking Class is a fun, hands-on cooking experience for you and your friends and work colleagues. Learn how to create a Thai feast or a simple, quick and easy meal for family and friends under the guidance of experienced Thai cook, Kaenkaew Phojaroensri.

At Original Thai Cooking, you will learn how to cook authentic Thai cuisine, step-by-step, and at a comfortable pace. Recipes are inspired by a combination of Royal Thai Cuisine, the exquisite fare of the Thai Royal family, and recipes from regional areas of Thailand and Laos.

Conducted in the setting of a full commercial kitchen based in Cheltenham, Original Thai Cooking classes are small, interactive and cater for all skill levels, from beginners to more advanced cooks. Kaenkaew’s personalised approach gives you an opportunity to experience intimate and enjoyable classes, where you’ll learn how to cook with passion and share tips and ideas.
We do not compromise on authentic flavours, original recipes and fresh ingredients. However we do cater to varying tastes and preferences, including the level of spiciness and balance of ingredients, so that you learn how to adapt recipes to your personal liking. Vegetarian dishes are also part of Kaenkaew’s extensive repertoire of authentic regional recipes.

It’s a great time to learn how to cook your favourite Original Thai dishes in ways that save you stress, time and money. Get the scent of lime leaves, basil, coriander, lemongrass and other exotic aromas and lesser known ingredients of Thai cuisine, and impress your family and friends with your newfound skills!

Whether you come by yourself, book with a friend or partner or wish to organise a corporate team building class for your club or office staff, we will provide you with a unique Thai cooking experience.

Kaenkaew, a Thai National with extensive culinary experience in both Thailand and Australia, will reveal the secrets of Thai cuisine in a friendly and informal environment. You will come away knowing how to prepare original and authentic Thai recipes at home, just as you would find in the best restaurants across Thailand.

Join us by following our booking procedures and we look forward to rewarding you with the food sensations of Thailand and a memorable learning experience.

“The Rose Between the Thorns”

The food was absolutely fantastic! The quality and depth of flavour and subtle spices (apart from the chili) exceeded our expectations of a five star restaurant. Forget the big name city restaurants - head down to the Follett Road Thai shop. Real Thai in Cheltenham.

“Hidden delight”

This fantastic Thai Cooking School provides freshly cooked takeaway that is the best Thai we've ever had. The food is excellent, and service is great. They even call your mobile when your order is ready for you to collect, so you don't have to leave home until it is ready. We haven't tried the cooking school yet, but plan to. The takeaway meals are a good size and are well priced for families. Note that it is a cooking school and takeaway - there's no dining-in option.
