An authentic Thai
cooking experience

Greetings! สวัสดีค่ะ

Greetings! สวัสดีค่ะWelcome to my kitchen

Hello, my name is Santana and ever since I was a child, I have had a huge passion for cooking. Inspired by my mother who owned street food restaurant in Thailand I would help her to make hundreds of Pad Thai dishes each day. After living in the UK for a number of years I could see an opportunity and so in 2018 I decided to use my skills, experience and passion by embarking on my own venture, giving birth to “Thai Home Cooking, North East” where I have been able to inspire many people about Thai food and how to cook it.

Please join me for one of my friendly, fun-filled Thai cooking classes right here in my home where we can explore and enjoy the authentic flavours of Thai cooking, together.

What You’ll Learn

My classes are designed for people of all experience levels, from total beginners to seasoned cooks looking to broaden their horizons. You’ll leave my personal cooking class with so much more than just recipes.

By understanding commonly used ingredients, cooking techniques and traditions, you’ll gain the knowledge and confidence to cook your own delicious Thai feasts.

We enjoyed a lovely cooking class and learned lots of top tips. Santana was a fantastic host and made us very welcome in her beautiful home. My husband booked the class as a birthday surprise and it was a lovely activity, followed by a delicious lunch of our efforts (and complimentary beverages). We would both throughly recommend it and we will be looking to book in for another menu soon.

We had the best time at Thai Home cooking North East. Sanatana is a great host and makes you feel so welcome. The dishes we cooked were fantastic and delicious (pescatarian menu) I love cooking and my partner is a complete beginner and the couple who were there with us on the days were chef's! We all joined in and enjoyed the class so it really is for any ability. We were able to eat what we'd cooked after with a drink which was lovely. Santana told us where we could by the ingredients and sent us the recipes after the class. I really can't recommend this highly enough. It was brilliant. I was bought my voucher for my birthday and it was a great present. We can't wait to go back to try out the meat menu. Thanks Santana x
