Raw Food

A one day introduction to Raw vegan Thai recipes

Course description and schedule


An overview of our Raw food course

Have you ever heard of a Raw Thai ice cream sandwich? During this special class students learn how to make unique recipes that are not found in any other school in Thailand.

Raw food preparation is performed without cooking, never heating the food to more than 40°C or 104°F. Students new to this concept will be introduced to the process of using a dehydrator, one of the primary pieces of equipment in Raw food preparation.
