You’ll undoubtedly leave Koh Samui with a craving for the food. Thailand’s spicy, savory, umami, and sweet dishes are satisfying, addictive, and incomparable to anything else. Which is why taking a cooking class while you’re on the island should be a mandate. There are many to choose from, but the Four Seasons’ class is one of our favorites for its patient culinary team. One of the hotel’s incredibly skilled chefs takes you through two dishes on the menu, starting with a tutorial on each one’s history and ingredients before showing how it’s prepared, step by step. You’ll learn to make specialties like steamed sea bass with spicy lime sauce and grilled prawns with tamarind, which will impress back home.
