JW Marriott Phuket Resort Launches Ginja Cooking School

Do you like to try exotic food? Over the past couple of decades Thai cuisine has become more and more popular across the United States. When you rent a timeshare in Thailand you can learn first hand how to prepare Thai food in your own home. The Thailand city of Phuket and Phuket Island, is renowned for its many cooking schools, developed with the foreign visitor in mind.

You learn to prepare such Thai favorites as Som Tum (spicy green papaya salad), Tom Ka Gai (chicken coconut milk soup) and Nhue Phad Prik Thai On (stir-fried beef tenderloin with young peppercorns in oyster sauce).

"A Thai meal is a feast for the senses, a medley of flavors, textures and aromas, it is a mastery of herbs and spices borrowed from many cultures and blended especially for a distinctly Thai taste," said a JW Marriott Ginja Cooking School spokesperson.

The JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa in Phuket, has launched Ginja Cook, "a contemporary learning facility which introduces rich Thai cuisine heritage." Ginja Cook’s “Everyone is Welcome” approach offers personalized individual, family and group culinary courses.

Another cooking school on Phuket Island is "Pat's Home Thai Cooking," globally renowned as the first and the best Thai cooking school in Phuket. Owned and run by Khun Patcharin, these cooking classes are actually taught in Pat's home, giving "home style" a whole new meaning. Having spent 8 years in California working as a chef, Pat knows what ingredients are available for American home cooks in their local supermarkets. So while Pat will suggest basic cooking ingredients that may be hard to find in your home town, she will always offer alternatives that can be substituted.

Saowaluck Wongpong runs the Phuket Thai Cookery School which offers 1-5-day classes. Each class is designed as a one day class so you can select which classes most interest you. The comprehensive course includes introduction to Thai ingredients with an actual market tour.

Other Phuket cooking schools include Kangsadaan Thai Cooking School and the Pum Restaurant Cooking School. At the Desserts Workshop you'll learn how to make such traditional Thai desserts as Sangkhaya (egg custard), Luk Chup (fruit-shaped desserts made of mung-bean flour), and Kluai Buat Chi (banana in coconut cream).

A timeshare rental on Phuket Island gives you a fabulous beach vacation, with an exotic cooking flair. A perfect vacation for foodies.
