About the trip
Culture and Religion Epicurious Foodie Hands-on Workshop
Kudeejeen is a melting pot of 3 different religions (Buddhism, Christianity and Islam) and 4 different beliefs. In the past, the first settlers in the Kudeejeen Community were the Portuguese whose traits are seen in the culture, architecture and cuisine. Besides the community’s most famous ‘Kanom Farang Kudeejeen’ or a Portuguese cupcake, there is a Kudeejeen lady who inherits the recipe of Thai royal cuisine in the reign of King Rama V and Portuguese cuisine from her ancestors who is best at making savory Thai-Portuguese dishes and traditional Thai dessert. Here’s the chance to try those extremely rare dishes and even cook them yourself!

  • Visit the Santa Cruz Church
  • Try ‘Kanom Farang Kudeejeen’ or a Portuguese cupcake at the cupcake house
