Thai cuisine is adored around the world. But those who learn to cook Thai dishes in Thailand itself are guaranteed to have a memorable experience. Every year, hundreds of visitors to Thailand's capital learn to cook local fare from chef Sanusi Mareh in Bangkok.
Thai chef and instructor Sanusi Mareh leads a group of Australian students to a local market in Bangkok.
Sanusi's students learn to buy local produce, including the vegetables, meat and spices they will later prepare.
Thai food is notoriously spicy. If you are brave you can add extra chillies.
At the Silom Thai Cooking School, which Sanusi owns and runs, students learn to cook Thai food from scratch and have a genuine Thai experience.
Sanusi Mareh, director of Silom Thai Cooking School, said, "Everything is authentic and we do it ourselves. We shop in the market, clean vegetables and meat together, and then cook and eat food together.They will remember how to cook on their own when they return home. They will remember and cook just how we taught them."
Each student has their own stove and Sanusi watches closely.He is there to answer any questions that come up.
