If you’re looking to cook something new for yourself or your family, or you’re a couple interested in taking a fun cooking class together while you shelter in place, then airKitchen and Cookly have an online cooking class for you.
Eating the local food is one thing, but there’s no better way to learn about an unfamiliar cuisine than by taking a cooking class. These are the cooking classes we’ve taken in different cities around the world.
airKitchen offers so many cooking classes in Japan that you could probably find one for whatever Japanese dish you want to make. As of this writing, they offer over 400 cooking classes in Tokyo alone!
We recently spent a week in Phuket and took this fun cooking class with Karn at Phuket Easy Thai Cooking. She’s an engaging and passionate cook who took us under the hood of dishes like Thai green curry, tom yum, and pad Thai, to show us exactly what goes into making these popular Thai favorites.
Ren and I enjoy taking cooking classes whenever we travel. It’s a great way to experience the cuisine and to better understand how authentic local food is supposed to taste.
I don’t enjoy spending time in the kitchen but this cooking class at Mama Noi Thai Cookery School was one of the most fun things we did in Chiang Mai. When you don’t have to do any clean-up and virtually all chance of failure is eliminated, then cooking becomes a guaranteed joy, even for boneheads like me.
We enjoy eating local food on our trips, but to actually learn how to make these dishes yourself is a different kind of experience. It puts you on both sides of the table and gives you a better understanding and appreciation for the cuisine.
