According to Destination Expert, Laurent Pinci, the best travel souvenir he ever brought home is a collection of Thai recipes he learned at the Blue Elephant Cooking School in Bangkok. "It was a fantastic way to immerse myself in the local culture, meet other travelers, learn how to make my favourite green curry and best of all, I didn't have to do the dishes!" From rich curries to perfectly sauteed Asian vegetables, ethnic Thai food is world-renowned for pairing beautiful flavors for a delectable dining experience. Bangkok's Blue Elephant Cooking School on Thailand tours is a fantastic recommendation for those who want to learn the secrets of the culture's storied food preparation. The cooking school is connected to the world-famous Blue Elephant restaurant. Although the restaurant has its roots in Belgium, the Blue Elephant has been steadfast in its adherence to classic Thai cuisine. You can choose from an all-vegetarian or meat program and will learn to cook such classics as Thai chili paste, tofu curry and true pad Thai. The Blue Elephant also provides a number of recipes on its website, so travelers who feel a little rusty after their training will have an "e-guide," of sorts, to assist them after their trip. Kensington Tours offers a mouthwatering tour of Thailand, Vietnam and Malaysia which features the Blue Elephant restaurant in Bangkok. (Alternatively, if you're headed to Phuket you can check out their second location there!). To learn more about the 14 Day Appetizing South East Asia tour, click here.
