    Great experience overall and totally recommended if you are interested in Thai cuisine... Arranged it last minute, and got a prompt response from Jim for the pickup. The market tour was very interesting with tasty choices. If you're on your own, don't worry too much, it just means you will not be sharing the delicacies :P Detailed recipes given, got to keep the apron as well as the headband at the end. And just remember to scoop! :)
    Fantastic experience- we all loved it

    This was an amazing experience from start to finish we thoroughly enjoyed it, the owners are so nice and very good at explaining all the cooking steps, ingredients and how to do everything yourself. It is extremely good value you cook yourself so much food that is really tasty. I would recommend this trip even my husband who does not particularly enjoy cooking loved it!

    One of our best experiences in Thailand
    Tal_k, Nov 2022
    It was a lovely, educational experience and was accompanied by a lot of humor and laughter. I came with my 12 year old daughter who enjoyed every moment. We started with a tour in the market where we got to know kinds of vegetables and fruits that we didn't know before. From there we returned to the workshop which was conducted in a professional, organized manner and most importantly - the food was delicious...
    Food and fun

    Amazing and authentic Thai cooking experience
    ashishmehta, Aug 2022
    Jim, Sally were experts and walked us through each step of the cooking process. They graciously accommodated our dietary preferences of being vegetarians. The dishes turned out to be very delicious and we wiped them clean. The whole experience, including the visit to the local market was memorable.
    Great cooking class
