Established in 1999 with massive success growing nearly every year, Samui Institute of Thai Culinary Arts (SITCA) is among the best on Koh Samui. Open Monday through Saturday, they offer three different types of cooking classes, which include Morning and Afternoon Classes, Carving Courses, and Intensive Training Courses.
For those who are interested in a one-time class where you will learn the basics of how to make authentic Thai dishes and proceed to enjoy the fruits of your labor immediately after, consider participating in the Morning and Afternoon Classes (50USD).
If you are in search of gaining a new skill before leaving Koh Samui, consider taking a Carving Course where you will learn how to carve beautifully elegant designs in both Thai fruits and vegetables. The first option for carving enthusiasts is a one-day course (70USD) that includes a custom carving knife while the second option may just be more suitable for those who truly want to immerse themselves in the carving, which offers a nine-hour course (167USD) going through a 38-page step by step instructional booklet.
What helps to set this Thai cooking class apart from so many others in Koh Samui is that they offer visitors of the island a chance to participating in either a six-day Thai Cuisine Immersion (1,460USD) or a twelve-day Training for Professionals (2,920USD) that both allow you to immerse yourself in the Thai cooking cultures and gain skills that will last a lifetime. Whichever course you decide on, SITCA will surely not disappoint.
