Brighton & Hove – Teacher Pim

Thai Cooking Lesson BrightonAbout Me : Hi, my name is Pim. My life revolves around Thai food and I look forward to sharing my passion with you!

My father opened Muang Thai restaurant in Brighton in 1987 and I grew up with the business. Not only am I a keen chef but I also help out with the management of the restaurant as well as bringing up my son.

“Good healthy food is what matters”


What to Expect? : I like to start my lessons at a local market to show you what brands to buy and how to choose your fresh ingredients. I will then drive us back to my kitchen to prepare and cook your chosen dishes.

I teach cooking methods unique to Thailand, not usually found in a western kitchen, so it is important to know what ingredients to use. I explain the history behind Thai table manners, how to serve and garnish with beautifully carved fruit and veg, sauces and condiments.

With soft background music you can expect a welcoming, friendly and very informative lesson and leave with the recipes, knowledge and the inspiration to cook more homemade Thai food.

“I aim to create an unforgettable, authentic and educational experience”
