Fully Immersive Learning Environment

At Blue Lotus, our students enjoy a unique campus-based learning environment, with the opportunity to stay in Evason Hua Hin’s well-appointed and spacious studio suites. The resort is located in a remote, quiet area, surrounded by nature, which makes the learning experience unique: there is no stress from the hectic city and everyday life, but time for reflection and focus on yourself and what you want to learn. Signing up for a class at Blue Lotus is not only a learning experience, but a time-out from your normal routines.
The learning center is located adjacent to the resort’s three restaurants, and within walking distance of a large organic garden which supplies the vegetables and herbs used in our plant-based raw and cooked organic food courses. Every week our students will take a trip to a nearby local market to acquire regional specialty items to incorporate into their culinary creations.

Exploration-based curriculum structure

Our classically-trained instructors provide comprehensive instruction in plant-based organic culinary techniques – refined recipes, knife skills, cooking equipment operation techniques. Artful plating and texture balancing are presented in a low-pressure environment where students are encouraged to reach their full creative potential. We encourage our students to be experimental and use their creativity in the kitchen so they have the possibility of finding their own unique style of cooking and be able to learn through misstakes and curiosity.

Personal cooking stations featuring innovative technology

At Blue Lotus, our classrooms provide every student with a cooking station that is in essence an individual kitchen, with access to a professional-grade cooking range, dehydrator, food processor, juicer, sous vide, turning slicer and more – all the tools needed to create exquisitely presented and delectable modern plant-based cuisine, as well as meet the requirements of our organic and raw cuisine curriculum.

Intimate classes
led by knowledgeable chefs

At Blue Lotus we limit our cooking-focused classes to 10 students and our raw cuisine classes to 16 students. Each class is led by a classically-trained chef and a helpful instructor who gives hands-on instruction and encourages our students to learn through action and creativity. Our teaching approach is giving direct feedback to our students, which we believe gives the most efficient results.
