We had such a wonderful time cooking with Poo! Poo and her friends were so patient with our children (10,8,4) and made us all feel at home in their kitchen. The food was just a bonus but it was fantastic as well. From the market to the stories to the food - can't recommend this experience enough!

We had a great time cooking with Poo! Started with an hour-long walk through a traditional wet market. Coming from Seoul I thought I have seen it all but the market we walked through was even more interesting. We then went to Poo's cooking school at her old house in a slum neighborhood. We made Larb salad, pad thai, and... More

Group pick up and drop off for Poo's Cooking Class made time management excellent and it was really well run with each of us personally participating and making 'easy to follow up at home later' recipes. Recommended to us by a friend. Recommended to you by us!

Poo's cooking class was the highlight of our trip. We were taken for a tour at a local Thai wet market before class started. The team spoke good English. It was great that Poo told us her story and she was simply inspirational. Overall a great experience!

Thanks so much for a great school and for showing us how to make cooking Thai easy. Thanks to kintai and kuntai for showing us the markets and also for driving us around. The whole experience was eye opening. Your school is the main reason we came to Bangkok to start our Thai experience.

This was such a wonderful and informative morning. Walking through the wet market, sourcing the ingredients was an added bonus. The cooking course was easy to follow and Poo & her staff are wonderful, interesting and very friendly. I highly recommend it.

The back story to Poo's cookery school is inspiring, and it's easy to see how it is benefiting her family, neighbours and the local community. Poo and her team are great - really efficient, and seem to genuinely enjoy demonstrating these wonderful Thai recipes and preparation techniques and helping participants achieve great results. Lots of laughter. Loved the whole experience.

We have been to Thailand before and wanted to see a more local side of living now. The market was amazing. We got a lot of information. Poos Team speaks good English, answered all questions and helped by buying something. You don't see any other tourists there which gives you the real Thailand feeling. Alone the market was worth the... More

We had a great time with Poo and friends visiting the markets learning about the vast fresh produce on offer, although not keen on the bag of frogs still! The cooking experience with Poo was great fun, food was amazing and I cooked it myself! Just remember not to eat before the class as there is no shortage of food... More

Eleven of us gathered awaiting to be picked up by our mini bus to go to the market to start our cookery experience. My friend Matt & I were not disappointed. It was an amazing morning. The market experience saw raw ingredients of a myriad. Our fellow cooks were all up for it- mixed ages, sexes & nationalities. The location... More
