The popular Thai restaurant is giving customers the chance to get stuck in

Thai restaurant Chaophraya is inviting people to don an apron and get stuck in at a cookery masterclasses.

The sessions are being launched again after a successful trial at the end of 2021 and give attendees the chance to make Thai classics.

It all takes place at the restaurant's city centre location at Eldon Square, on the Monument terrace area.

The classes take place every Sunday and teach one of five starters and mains, including some of the restaurant's most popular dishes; Thai Green Curry, Pad Thai, Papaya Salad, Tom Yum Thai Soup, Spring Rolls and Massaman Curry.

You'll be in safe hands too with experienced head chef and Executive Chef of the restaurant group, Kim Kaewraikhot leading the sessions.

Kim said: “We are so excited to launch the new cookery classes here at Chaophraya Newcastle.

"We have taken the time to perfect these classes so that our guests feel a true taste of all that Thailand has to offer throughout their experience.

"The recipes we have chosen to teach are made with the freshest ingredients and showcase a variety of skills throughout the different sessions.

"Our guests can put their culinary skills to the test, or simply enjoy creating a classic Thai dish in a group environment.

“The best Thai food comes from using the freshest ingredients, along with the skilful art of preparation and combining the right ingredients at the right time to create an exceptional dish. Our live cooking classes provide the necessary education, facilities and approach to help participants."

The cooking courses are to take place every Sunday

Those who attend the classes are greeted with fruit punch on arrival, before an introduction into Thai ingredients and where to source them.

The demonstration then gets underway before participants get the chance to cook the dish themselves.

The masterclass will be made up of 5-12 people and each person will learn to cook one starter and one main.

The session will be around 2 hours and will conclude with a tasting session.

Classes start at £69 and can be booked on the Chaophraya website.
