As a non-stop learner himself, Ian Kittichai—an award-winning chef and founder of Issaya Cooking Studio—imparts a life’s worth of expertise through his cookbooks, consultancies, and television appearances. Issaya Cooking Studio is a progression of his flagship restaurant, Issaya Siamese Club, where he teaches the recipes on the menu of Issaya Siamese in his classes. From pushing a cart of his mother’s cooking after school to a recurring contender in “Iron Chef Thailand,” Chef Ian Kittichai has risen in life through his work in the kitchen. He’s trained in London, Sydney, and France, but he’s since come home, built up a local empire, and established this cooking school. The dishes you’ll learn veer into more gourmet territory, and beyond the most popular Thai dishes, it’s perfect for an impressive dinner date at home!
