Thai Chef School is committed to the facilitation of student learning and career development. We strive to provide a professional and dynamic learning environment while empowering students to become tomorrow’s culinary leaders. Our goal is to help food and beverage workers in pursuing their culinary dreams by offering accredited culinary training, internships, and job placement assistance. Receive an accredited diploma for 6 weeks of culinary training and then stay for 4.5 months working as an intern at a Thai hotel, resort, or restaurant–all using a 6 month Education Visa.
Our school campus is in Bangkok, the cultural and culinary capital of Thailand. To see a PowerPoint presentation about Thai Chef School, please click HERE. Being ranked #6 in world popularity, Thai cuisine is noted for its taste and health aspects. We know how good Thai dishes should taste, for we are located in Thailand. We teach authentic Thai cooking not fusion. And for those interested in learning Western (European) cooking, not a problem. And in our Pan Asian course, one can learn Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese cuisines. Our campus is conveniently located directly on Sukhumvit Road, 2 blocks from BTS On Nut, directly under The Pizza Company restaurant in the Phyll Community Center. Classes are conducted in new professional classrooms by English-speaking Thai and Western chefs.
School chefs are highly trained English-speaking Thai nationals. All have experience working in Thai and Western restaurants locally and internationally, and have had numerous years of experience teaching cooking at various schools.
Our basic goal is to teach students authentic tasting Asian and Western dishes while instilling a work ethic and professional skills in our candidates. Competence in preparing every dish from scratch is emphasized. We subscribe to the idea that one learns best by doing; therefore, classes are entirely hands-on. And this is just what our students do—they cook, cook, and cook. Instructors demonstrate how to prepare a dish, and students practice until the correct taste is achieved. We make novices into cooks, cooks into chefs, and chefs into Asian culinary chefs. Want to learn and have some fun? Come join us here in exotic Bangkok. Learning never tasted so good!!
