Thai cuisine is divided into four categories: Northern, Eastern, Southern, and Western. Located in Bangkok, the school focuses on the cooking style originated from the central region of Thailand.
Rich in vegetables and fruits, this culture thinks highly of how the ingredients are combined and designed into each recipe to deliver a smoothing taste. Soups and fried dishes are mostly featured, as well as seafood relish such as Thai fish sauce and Thai shrimp paste. Furthermore, because of the great number of Chinese immigrants, the central cuisine also incorporates some southern Chinese dishes from southern Fujian, Chaoshan and Guangdong that has become today’s well-known Thai dishes, such as green curry, Tom Yum soup and Pad Kra Pow Moo.
