They talk about our cooking school

  • Papatya S
    Absolutely fantastic experience!! Would highly recommend
    Thank you Chef Paul for an amazing class. We had so much fun! Chef has a great sense of humour and is an outstanding cook. I learnt several new tips as well as the recipes themselves which were delicious. Great value for money too- we learnt four dishes which was more than enough for the two of us for lunch with even some left over to take away with us. If you're ever in Bangkok you must try this as it really is something you can't find anywhere else!!
  • Harshrk
    Really fun and informative cooking class
    I'm so glad I took this cooking class. Paul was our chef and absolutely phenomenal. We started off by going to some local markets where we learned about local produce. We also went to a local coffee/tea stand and tried authentic Thai coffee or tea. Before heading back to the cooking school, we went to a curry market and learned how they make curry from scratch.


  • Ravina

    Amazing, fun, heartwarming, delicious experience for the whole family. We felt like we had been transported to a wonderful world of aromas, tastes and Chef Noroor’s stories

  • babette_3110
    Great experience and easy cooking
    We are glad we took the course while staying in Bangkok. Super friendly staff, top notch equipement and easy cooking even without any cooking experience. We prepared five tasty dishes (Curry, Fish, soup, noodles and Dessert) and ate it after class in the wonderful decorated and very traditional restaurant. Highly recommended!!

    Going beyond all expectations
    We loved our experience at The Blue Elephant Cooking School and from start to finish, it went beyond all expectations.
    The teaching chefs were fun and the classroom set up is superb. Everyone gets to cook at their own station and eat the food they've prepared. We even got to meet the amazing woman founder, Chef Nooror Somay Steppe. She's so humble and cool. And the takeaway keepsakes were generous and of high quality.

    Amazing Cooking Experience!
    This was the second time I have been here for the cooking class!:) The market tour was amazing! ( I didn’t join the market tour last time since I joined the Sunday class, therefore I returned!:)) Instructor Louis has brought us to some shops and the market tour was so interactive! Chef Paul(Pau,Bow,,, I forgot how its spelling:D) class was so fun and happy.:) Since the cooking class was in a small group, we were able to have a closer look on cooking ways and he explained to us very clearly. It was so amazing and I would definitely recommend to those who are interested in Thai food:)
  • Alex
    Fun cooking experience
    we joined the afternoon class and there were 5 dishes. The teacher gave a demonstration before we attempted to cook any dish. the food was very delicious and we dined at restaurant with elegant decor. the overall experience was excellent and would totally recommend others to join.
