Elegant Blue Elephant cuisine, practiced by chefs worldwide, can only be practiced at Blue Elephant Cooking School in Bangkok.

Fresh ginger, galangal, long bean and so much more are harvested at Khum Lana before heading to the outdoor kitchens. In southern Thialand, fishing will bring the rewards of finger-licking good black crab accompanied by Andaman Sours.
