A Thai



Events & Classes for Friends, Family and Colleagues


sawadee menu


The Sawadee Menu is a curated range of traditional Thai dishes. It has been composed using fresh ingredients that are sourced locally in Pretoria. You don't need to be a professional chef to cook delicious Asian dishes. From fresh crispy spring rolls and salads to iconic thai curries and stir fries, the sawadee menu is a taste sensation. 


My Story


I left South Africa in 2003 to pursue my passion for teaching and cooking. I spent fourteen years in Thailand as a teacher of literature at the international French school and travelled around South East Asia taking various cookery classes.

The flavours and interesting cooking techniques intrigued me and I spent many hours perfecting the art of Thai cooking. On my return to South Africa I decided to combine my two passions and launched the Sawadee Thai Cooking School. Thai food is not just a recipe; it is a culinary experience that will change the way you think about food forever.

I have designed the menus to suit vegetarians, vegans and meat eaters alike. Nobody needs to eat boring food due to their preferences or allergies.

Lets get cooking!



Sawadee Thai Cooking Classes was launched in November 2017 and has become increasingly popular in Gauteng with people who are looking for an unusual, interesting and fun activity.


We offer groups and individuals the opportunity to cook authentic Thai dishes in an idyllic garden setting. Sawadee’s Thai cooking classes are also great for teambuilding and special events which can be customised according to specific needs.


In addition, we have our own calendar of events like Full Moon Date Nights, the Loy Krathong Festival of Lights and Water, Spring Festival and many more (see Sawadee’s Events Calendar)
