When contacting the schools that offer vegan/vegetarian as well as meat options it is always wise to explain veganism.
NO meat, NO chicken, NO fish, NO prawns/shrimp, No eggs or milk.
You would NOT believe how many places think vegans eat chicken or prawns. There are plenty of vegan options in Thai kitchens so don’t worry about not having enough ingredients to eat.
Specifically for vegetarian and vegan students, May Kaidee offers morning and afternoon sessions.
1,500 baht for either. The lessons include 8 recipes and Thai dancing.
