Kitchen Know-How

Language barriers aside, yes, this cooking school gets the whole "poo" thing. But the name actually stems from head chef Khun Saiyuud Diwong's nickname: Poo, shorthand for "Chompoo," which means rose-apple. An adept cook, she runs this one-of-a-kind culinary classroom in the heart of Bangkok's biggest slum, Klong Toey. Cooking With Poo & Friends classes aren't just mere recipe-making: They kick off with visits to the Klong Toey market for fresh ingredients, and then proceed to the kitchen to whip this fodder into fabulous Thai dishes such as Yum Nuea (a spicy beef salad) and classic Pad Thai.
