My partner and I visited the school for the whole day and got so much out of it. We made five different courses each, none of which we'd made before and, though neither of us is a cook, it all tasted marvelous! The teaching is top notch, the atmosphere friendly and the resources more than sufficient. We began with a... More

This course was great and we would all recommend. We were taken to a local market to choose our ingredients and Amporn told us all about the different flavours. Then we went and cooked four meals which all tasted great. I wasn't so sure about cooking a Thai soup but actually that was probably my favourite. Making spring rolls was... More

Me and my Husband had a fantastic time on this cooking course. We were picked up from our hotel and taken to a local street market where we were taught about the ingredients we were to use in the dishes we would be cooking. We were then taken to the cooking school which was perfectly set out and people who... More

Such a friendly staff and a wonderful experience with a diverse group. We were able to make a reservation the day before for three people to do the afternoon class. They have a good facility to allow 15-20 people to attend the class. They have a young, excited staff that teaches you pretty well so everyone in our group had... More

It's a value-for-money proposition - 4 hours of fun activity, a meal thrown in, and a takeaway too in the form of a cook book. All for 800 baht, inclusive of hotel transfers. Beats paying 4500 baht ++ for a half day cooking class at the hotel we were staying in, so what if they threw in a glass of... More

We have done cooking classes across SE Asia and this one is by far the best we have done. They take a different approach as in you eat each dish once you have cooked it rather than waiting until the end and feasting on everything. I wasn't sure about this at first but it worked really well and highlighted just... More

We got picked up from our hotel, taken to the market to learn about various Thai vegetables and herbs. After this we went to the cookery school. We picked what we wished to cook on the way. The ladies running the cookery school were very nice, always smiling, very informative, and happy to engage and answer any questions you have.... More

I love it and I will take part in the cookery school definitely again! It is awesome! Friendly, well organized and good food. Vegetarian friendly and you get a cookbook as well so you can try the recipes at home if you want to. Just really nice here:) you definitely won't regret it!

They picked us up at our hotel, we went to a market where the woman explained a lot about the different Thailand herbs and vegetables. Then off to cooking school. We could pick different things to make. My friend and I picked different things thinking we would learn more. If I did again, I would pick the same things. We... More

We went here for the night time course which we LOVED! They picked us up from our hotel and we went to the markets were our guide talked us through all the different types of veggies and what they are used for. We also got to have a walk around the markets for 5 minutes which is all we needed.... More
