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

Old Thai cookbooks often lack quantities because Siamese cooks didn’t follow recipes. You can cook like that too!

I want you to remember that when you enroll today!

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.

Learning outcomes and my promises

Get access to everything right away. Unlock more than 50 mastercalsses, over 250 recipes and Articles and in addition you will gain access to NEW MONTHLY masterclasses and recipes as they become available.

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

Hanuman Aspler's passion for Thai food led him to dedicate over 30 years researching the history, culture and wisdom of Thailand's ancient culinary traditions. Since 1989, he has lived in Thailand, where he is known as a leading expert in pre-World War II Siamese cuisine.

At Hanuman's farm and culinary sanctuary called Three Trees Doi Saket, nestled amidst nature just 40 minutes from Chiang Mai, he provides one-of-a-kind Siamese culinary education tailored for professional chefs and serious food enthusiasts alike.

His workshops delve deeply into decoding centuries-old culinary manuscripts to extract the essence of ancient Siamese flavor principles. Hanuman views Thai cuisine as a language with its own grammar and lyrical quality, and he guides students to find their unique voice when cooking.

Rather than providing mere recipes, Hanuman offers a framework for intuitive, freehand cooking. By analyzing cultural context, decoding ingredients, explaining techniques and exposing the magical synergies that bring together a harmonious dish, he empowers students to create personalized interpretations from a foundation of authenticity.

At the core of Hanuman's teaching philosophy is the idea that creativity blossoms from deep understanding. He encourages chefs to embrace Thai cuisine not through rigid imitation, but as a storytelling medium open to improvisation when the "lyrics" are properly understood.

To facilitate this total immersion, Hanuman has cultivated an ecological sanctuary featuring a lush landscape and a large variety of edible and medicinal plants. This allows ingredients to be locally foraged just as families did in ancient Siam.

Amidst this serene atmosphere conducive to expanding one's horizons, Hanuman shares his rare expertise honed over decades of passionate scholarship. Much more than a cooking class, his culinary school aims to transmit ages-old Siamese wisdom to ignite creative brilliance in the kitchen.
