A really fun morning - with great food!
Jonathan_W, Feb 2023
A thoroughly enjoyable morning with wonderful food to share for lunch. The market tour was very interesting and a good introduction to the ingredients we would be using in cooking. Our group of six had chosen a good variety of dishes and Apple was the perfect host and teacher to instruct us in cooking. Everything we prepared looked incredible and very professional! We finished by eating all the dishes together as a group and everything without exception was delicious - special mention for the banana and chocolate spring rolls! All in all a very enjoyable fun activity.

Excellent experience with friends
Leetae_W, Nov 2022
This cooking class was excellent. A group of 6 friends did it and all was well organised from booking to the class itself. The trip to the market with explanations on local offerings was great before heading to the Waterside cooking school to make our dishes. Apple and team were kind and informative and the meals were delicious. Would definitely recommend.
Response from Host, Nov 2022

Not to be missed when visiting Khao Lak
Amy_R, July 2022
Apple's Riverside Thai Cooking Class was an absolute highlight of our trip to Khao Lak. She taught us about local produce and fish during the tour of the local market in the morning. Very cool. The best part was, of course, Apple's guidance while cooking and then the eating of the food we made. Every one of the seven dishes our group made was amazing. Our resort's offereings paled in comparison after. Riverside Thai Cooking Class in Khao Lak should be on everyone's must-do list.

Yummy Thai food that was scrumptious.
Stephen, Apr 2022
From the greeting at the hotel to the farewell on return, quality and excellence were always demonstrated. We made spring rolls, Tom Yim (chicken), Massaman curry and sticky rice with mango from scratch. The instructions and follow-up were clear and easy to understand. The class was a pleasure to be a part of. A fantastic experience for both if us.

Amazing cooking experience with Apple
Carmen_t, Mar 2022
If you would like to learn how to cook your favourite Thai dishes or learn something new, then this trip is a must. From being picked up by Apple at our hotel to the tour of the market to see the fresh produce, to the step by step prepping and cooking, the experience was fantastic. Apple showed individuals how to prep their pre selected recipes but also talked through the spring rolls as a team. She took her time with us and didn’t rush the experience. The food was delicious. Thank you Apple and your girls for this culinary delight experience.
Amazing experience

A Foodies Dream!
Natalie_J, Mar 2020
The teacher, Apple, was an excellent tutor and just so friendly and sweet. We thoroughly enjoyed learning, cooking and of course eating all 7 dishes our group of 6 made. The small class size was also excellent, allowing us to ask questions and get a bit of extra help if needed - a must do for foodies travelling to Khao Lak!
Excellent experience
Vicenzino C, Nov 2019
Apple is such a charming host. She made my family feel extremely comfortable and also taught us a lot about Thai cooking. A fantastic experience!!
Kurset kan varmt anbefales 👍👍👍
Helle_S, Mar 2023
En helt fantastik oplevelse, hvor vi startede på markedet, hvor vi handlede ind. Vi fik en fantastisk hjælp og guidning omkring de krydderier vi gerne ville købe med hjem👍 Kursusset var unikt, det var tid, fortælling om råvarer og god hjælp😊 Apple er en fantastisk kok, hun taler et perfekt engelsk. Apple brænder for det Thailandske køkken og vi får sendt opskrifterne fra kurset på mail, og vi kan frit kontakte hende, hvis vi har spørgsmål. 👍👍👍

Dear Helle_S Thanks for joining Apples Thai cooking class in Khao Lak.
Ein schöner Vormittag mit Apple
Dietmar_G, Feb 2023
Wir haben von Deutschland aus gebucht.Unsere Freunde die mit uns reisten waren mit dabei und waren sehr beeindruckt. Wir wurden von Apple am Hotel pünktlich abgeholt wo wir zum lokalen Markt fuhren. Wir waren 6 Personen die ihr Essen das sie kochen wollten ,vorher ausgesucht hatte.. Apple hat die ganze Sachen erklärt und noch mehr was mann am Markt bekommt. Danach ging es zum Kochen. Auch hier war alles professionell vorbereitet. Ein jeder hatte seine Zutaten auf dem Tisch und wir fingen unter der Aufsicht von Apple an zu schibbeln. Danach hat ein jeder sein Gericht selbst gekocht. Es wurde Rücksicht darauf genommen ob jemand scharf ist oder nicht.Danach kamen alle Gerichte auf dem Tisch und ein jeder konnte vom andren probieren. Wir lernten auch wie Mann Frühlingsrollen macht. Am besten waren die mit Bananen und Schokolade. Es war eine sehr Familiäre Stimmung, und wir haben viel gelacht. Danach wurden wir zum Hotel gefahren. Wir werden den Vormittag lange in Erinnerung behalte.
