Why Cooking With Poo is special ?
Khun Poo has been operating her own cooking school for the Bangkok tourist market under a community self-help program she built with four other residents. If you’re travelling on a budget, this is one of the obvious and best on-the-cheap options available to foreigners who want to learn how to cook and eat four Thai dishes in just 4 hours.
More importantly, your contribution to the school will assist in the long-term development of Klong Toey residents who live in difficult circumstances of urban poverty. Aside from the other cooking schools offered in Bangkok, this class gives you a unique and safe local experience in one of the city’s oldest and largest slums.
What to explore at Cooking With Poo?
This cooking class is offered six days a week. During low season, the price for this half day class will cost $1000 Thai Baht pp. During the high season, the price will increase to $1200 Thai Baht pp.The tour begins with a visit to the local market to witness some of the bizarre, exotic, sweet, spicy and hot food items to be used for the class. Each meal begins with an introduction and demonstration. Individual cooking stations allow you — step-by-step — to show off or discover your hidden culinary talents. Hands-on instruction from Poo will give you a new appreciation for chopping, stirring, herbs and fresh aromas.

Khun Poo is present at most but not every class session. On occasion, she turns the class over to her very capable and equally resilient team of local residents who have worked with her for several year now. They do NOT offer refunds in the case that Poo is not able to be present for some reason, whether professional (training, board meeting, etc.) or personal (sick, personal day, etc.).Other
Many come to Thailand for its culinary attributes. If you're one of these, then cooking with Poo is a must-do activity. The day begins with a tour of Klong Toei market. Not only do you get to learn about the ingredients you will be using later in the morning, but you get a fantastic overview of Thai market culture, products and produce. Even those of you that are well-versed in cooking will learn more than you expected. Your group, which only includes about 10 people at a time (book in advance) then go to the Klong Toei neighborhood to Poo's kitchen. The original kitchen was destroyed in a fire, but the staff had an alternate site up and running almost immediately--they are dedicated professionals. Along the way you walk through one of Bangkok's poorer districts, opening your eyes to a Bangkok not most get to see. Do say hello to the locals and children. Unlike "slums" in other metropolises, you will feel welcome and safe. The workshop is masterfully organized. You learn to whip-up a 3-course meal in a matter of two hours. The best part: you get to eat your creations. They prepare recipes for you to take home as well. The cooking will also introduce you to basic Thai cooking techniques and aromatics. You'll definitely want to show off your skills as soon as you get home. The best part though: Poo and her staff. They were amazing in every way: welcoming, informative, funny, and energetic. They were superb ambassadors of Thailand, its people, and its culinary traditions. The proceeds go to the local community and help support activities for disadvantaged children and women in the community.
