Learn To Make Your Favorite Thai Dishes at the ShaSa Resort

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” Even today this Chinese proverb remains true.

Most people like to eat Thai food at restaurants but why waste your hard earned cash buying Thai cuisine every month when you can learn how to make it yourself. The question is where can you learn to make Thai food? The answer is the Shasa Resort.

Thai dishes are famous throughout the world, mostly because Thai cuisine is healthy, delectable and has a unique flavor. Popular Thai dishes include Pad Thai, Tum Yum Gong and Thai beefsteak. You can learn to create any of these dishes by taking a free Thai cooking class at the ShaSa Resort.

Thailand is located in between China, India and Oceania so it should be no surprise that it was once the center of trade between these 3 regions. This is also the reason that Thai culture and food is greatly influenced by these areas, and why Thai food uses Indian, Chinese and Oceania techniques and ingredients in their food. Common Thai ingredients include garlic, fish sauce, onions, chilies, coconut milk and spicy peppers.

People assume Thai food takes ages to cook because it’s bursting with delicious flavors. However, creating Thai dishes isn’t as hard as you think, the hardest part is preparing the ingredients; the actual cooking process won’t take that much time at all.

If you are living in western country then you will probably find most essential Thai cuisine ingredients at your local Asian super market. Remember, if you can’t find the exact ingredient you are looking for you can always substitute.

If you would like a glimpse of what you can learn by taking a Thai cooking class in Koh Samui, then you can watch some videos, which will help you get a general idea of how to cook some Thai dishes. The video is very helpful but isn’t as great as learning how to make your favorite Thai dishes from world-class chefs at the ShaSa Resort.

Learning to cook Thai food is both fun and rewarding.
