Online Siamese Culinary Masterclasses for Professional Chefs and Thai food enthusiasts

Join my in-depth, inclusive, highly inspirational, and informative online courses.

How would you like to master your Thai cooking skills and learn both familiar and unknown dishes from the Siamese culinary legends of the past? 

In my masterclasses, for the first time in the English language, I reveal the culinary secrets hidden in old and hard-to-find Siamese cookbooks and recipes dating from the late 19th century to modern days. 

I have developed a proven and practical set of tools that can immediately enhance your Thai cooking skills. 

The courses I teach offer one-of-a-kind Siamese culinary training in the English language, curated for professional chefs of all skill levels and for serious Thai food enthusiasts.

For more than 30 years, I’ve been researching Thai cuisine. I have had the privilege of teaching hundreds of students and Thai food enthusiasts, as well as professional chefs – some with Michelin stars – in approaching and understanding Thai cuisine.   

I am committed to making understanding Siamese culinary wisdom possible without spending years of practice. I would love to show you how to structure your cooking learning process in a fluid, inspirational and creative manner that will transform and accelerate your progress!

Hanuman is a generous teacher who shares his in-depth knowledge in cultural, sociological, historical, as well as scientific aspects of Thai flavors. He makes the learning fun and unintimidating.

How Would You Like to Cook Alongside The Siamese Culinary Legends of The Past?

We will visit all the regions of Thailand, cooking food that showcases the entirety of Thailand’s diverse cultural and socio-economic spectrum, covering traditional Siamese cuisine from the late 19th century to the modern-day. 

If you have learned to cook Thai food from books or online tutorials, or even in person from Thai chefs, and are eager to learn more, then this is the right course for you.
 

Does this sound familiar?

  • You can’t find reliable English language resources covering traditional Siamese culinary topics in depth and detail.

  • You want to remain faithful to the authenticity of Thai culinary traditions, and you’re striving to understand the cultural and historical context of the dishes.

  • You’ve bought every book in the English language – and maybe even some in Thai – but you still don’t feel as if you can easily cook and create sound-tasting Thai dishes.

  • You’ve tried endless recipes and become even more confused. You can’t figure out which recipe will work or how to properly season a dish, or even how to determine the optimal proportion of the ingredients in a curry paste.

  • You simply want to get inspired.

If it does, then you already know what a minefield it can be trying to find quality resources in the English language about Thai food.

Thankfully, all of that is behind you...

That's what inspired us to build this place 
I’ve been a chef for ten years, owned a Thai restaurant for two, and studied under 4 different Thai chefs. I learned more about Thai food in 2 weeks with Hanuman than the rest combined. His understanding of the history and provenance of the dishes he teaches is clearly the result of a lifetime of passion and research. This is not a course in how to make pad Thai rather it is I rare experience to truly understand the soul of Thai food.

I have been teaching Thai cooking for many years but a 7 day intensive, no nonsense and fun course with Hanuman was enough to totally change the way I look at my cooking. Hanuman has an impressive historical knowledge of the Thai culinary identity as well as outstanding teaching skills. If you take Thai cooking seriously, and you are willing to exit your comfort zone, then you need to cook with Hanuman.

We will visit all the regions of Thailand, cooking food that showcases the entirety of Thailand’s diverse cultural and socio-economic spectrum, covering traditional Siamese cuisine from the late 19th century to the modern-day. 

I will equip you with essential tools to master freehand cooking – to create rather than imitate. You will comprehend the logic behind ingredient ratios, liberating you from the need to follow written recipes.

You will understand the ratios of the ingredients, the anatomy of the dish and its flavor profile, and how to calculate correct seasoning ratios.

Nothing is left to coincidence when we cook Thai cuisine. Your cooking will reflect deliberate and conscious decisions, and I will teach you how to make the right decisions and fill in the blanks in written recipes so that your dishes taste personal and real.

I will explain my thought process as I interpret classical, modern, and contemporary dishes from all walks of life, giving you the tools to cook heartfelt interpretations of dishes that are flavorful and faithful to their origins..

I will guide you how to structure your cooking learning process in a fluid, inspirational and creative manner that will transform the way you perceive and taste Thai cuisine.

I will teach you how to trust your judgment and culinary intuition and establish your creative toolkit to cook Thai dishes artistically, rather than blindly following recipes.

I don’t keep secrets. I will teach you everything I know and simplify the most difficult concepts in an easy-to-understand and easy-to-follow manner.

Our recipes are not modified to fit western kitchens – they taste like they have a solid bond to the culture, the land and its people.

I will only describe flavors with clear, meaningful and understandable terms; I promise not to use clichés like “brings the flavor out” that do not contribute to your understanding.

Finally, I am not going anywhere.

And now you can access this information from the comfort of your own home.

My kitchen studio is wired up and going live, so don’t miss the action – and sign in today.

Meet Hanuman

Thai food Scholar and founder of Thaifoodmaster.com
Co-founder of Three Trees Doi Saket


Hi there,
my name is Hanuman. I have been living in the Kingdom of Thailand since 1989.

Thai cuisine enjoys an international reputation that seriously lacks real understanding of its roots.

The diverse and rich Thai food culture created by ingenuity and creativity of The Thai people is at risk of being presented as narrow and plain, while the skills of Thai chefs are at risk of becoming merely a repetition of the commercial.

I am committed to making it possible to understand Siamese culinary wisdom without spending years in study.

My aim is to show my students how to structure their own cooking learning process in a fluid, inspirational and creative manner that will transform the way they perceive and taste Thai cuisine.
