Focused Fun Learning

Some people feel nervous about their culinary abilities and think that authentic Thai food will be difficult to make.  You will be pleasantly surprised however, with the expert tuition from our teachers, following their simple steps, even beginners will be able to learn to make authentic Thai dishes like a pro, flavoured to your own individual preferences.

As any great teacher will tell you, people remember 5% of what they are told, 20% of what they see and 75% of what they actually do.  At Bees Garden the preparation of each dish will first be demonstrated by the instructor, then you will go to your own  individual cooking station and under the expert guidance of your teacher prepare the dish yourself.  Your teacher will focus on tips and techniques that they have gained from over 10 years teaching Thai food preparation, resulting in great tasting authentic Thai dishes that you will be able to recreate when you return home.

All our ingredients are fresh and where possible grown in our organic garden.  Those ingredients that we cannot grow ourselves are sourced  locally to ensure they are naturally produced by local people with care and attention in an environmental sensitive and sustainable way.

 Amazing Morning Menu

Prepare six different dishes

The first thing that you will prepare is your curry paste, either red, yellow or green depending on the type of curry that you have opted to make.  Using a pestle and mortar, you will learn to make this paste from fresh ingredients, many of which you will personally collect from the garden.  Learning to make your own curry paste, instead of buying a ready made paste, allows you to tweak the ingredients to your own tastes.

Curry Paste (Your Choice)

Thai Curry (Your Choice)

Later in the day you will use your home made curry paste to make one of the three curries:

Red Curry Chicken is a very popular Thai dish consisting of red curry paste and chicken cooked in coconut milk.

Yellow Curry Chicken includes turmeric as one of the vital ingredients, giving the curry its typical golden-yellow colour.  Thai yellow curry has a somewhat sweet taste with a little bit of spice.

Green Curry Chicken gets its name from the green colour of the dish, which comes from the green chillies used to make the paste.

As with all the dishes on our menu, there are vegetarian options for the curries.



Coconut Soup with Chicken

Along with tom yam gung, tom kha gai is one of the most famous Thai dishesTom kha gai is usually eaten more like a curry rather than a soup, served with a plate of rice and spooned onto your rice before eating it.

The vegetarian option uses tofu instead of the chicken.


Stir Fried Noodles

Pad Thai or phad thai is a stir-fried rice noodle dish commonly served as street food and at casual local eateries in Thailand.  Stir fried rice noodles may have been introduced to Thailand during the time of the Ayutthaya Kingdom by Chinese traders.


Cashew Nuts with Chicken

Thai cashew nuts with chicken is a delicious dish and is quite easy to prepare at home.

The Thai name, gai-phat-met-mamuang, comes from gai meaning chicken, phad meaning stir fried and mamuang meaning cashes nuts.

A vegetarian option is available using tofu.


Bananas in Coconut Milk

This is a popular Thai dessert where the kluai-nam-wan-wa type of bananas are cooked in coconut milk.  This is a vegetarian dessert and is quite easy to prepare.


Your cooking teacher will demonstrate and sometimes involve you in the preparation of the rice.  If you are lucky, she may even show you how to make it a little differently!

Unique Evening Menu

Prepare six different dishes

The first thing that you will prepare is your khao soi curry paste. This is similar to the yellow curry paste, but with a few more steps involved for the authentic taste.  Using a pestle and mortar, you will learn to make this paste from fresh ingredients, many of which you will personally collect from the garden.

Vegetarian options are available.

Curry Paste

Khao Soi with Chicken

Later, you will use your curry paste to make khao soi, a curry- and coconut-flavored noodle soup, which is Northern Thailand's most famous export. Westernized Thai recipes often make compromises to suit Western palates. Not this time. This is the recipe for folks who will not settle for inferior imitations of this iconic dish.

Vegetarian options are available.


Tom Yam Soup with Shrimps

The words tom yam kung are derived from three Thai words.  Tom refers to the boiling process, while yam refers to a Thai spicy and sour salad.  The word kung simply means shrimp.

Vegetarian options are available.

Spring Rolls

The classic Thai spring rolls recipe results in hot and crunchy rolls with a delicious filling.  A great tasting filling is the key to spring roll success.  Part of what makes this happen is the fact that the filling ingredients are stir-fried before they're rolled.

Stir Fried Chicken with Basil

Thai basil chicken, better known in Thai as pad krapao gai, is a contender for the most popular, and the most loved Thai street food dish of all time.

Vegetarian options are available.

Mango with Sticky Rice

Mango sticky rice is a traditional Thai dessert made with glutinous rice, fresh, ripe mangos and coconut milk, and eaten with a fork, spoon, or sometimes the hands.
