Nice cooking class

A very nice experience to discover local food and market. The teacher was very nice, allowing us to choose the meal we want to learn. I recommended it.

Would do it again

The short shopping in the local market and the following cooking was a great experience. We got a lot of information about thai cooking and could practice the whole cooking process.nThe atmosphere was great and we could laugh a lot.nYou really have to be very hungry, as everyone makes its three dishes. It will be a lot of good food.nWould do it again.

Amazing cooking class!

It was only five of us in class, and it was a very intimate setting. When Karns friends came to help, they set up every single plate for us so that we didnu2019t get confused. She was so sweet and even allowed my daughter to take part and cook her own. We did more than just learn in this class, we traded cultural differences, we had uneasy convos, and everyone left full, satisfied, and with their own serving of each dish. nnShe and her team really made this a pleasant experience. We would do this again on a different day just to be around Karn and her team again. nnYou would have an amazing time because we definitely did. nnThank you!

Very disappointed with this cooking class. nGarn was very disorganised on the day of our course. I didn't find this cooking class hands on enough. I have previously done other Thai cooking courses in Thailand over the last 20 years. nOne of the recipes printed out had all the ingredients missing on the page. nAlso found another recipes she was making was different to what was on typed page. Ingredients missing. Very confusing. nWe all sat at a long table and had to cut up different vegetables for her to make the green curry paste in a blender. There was no asking anyone to wash their hands before cutting up the vegetables. nWe then went into kitchen (were asked to wash our hands) to cook our green curry. nLater went back into kitchen to cook our Pad Thai noodles - best I have ever tasted. nWe didn't get to make or cook the chicken satays. The kitchen helpers did all of this. We did get to see how the satay sauce was made. Although she had forgotten on key ingredient when at the markets prior to the cooking course. So we had to wait for her to get on her bike and get it and come back. Meanwhile we sat around waiting. nTo make matters worse, she had completely forgotten about the dessert that was made and asked everyone did they want to take it home with them as u0022take outu0022 as she had run out of time. nNot enough time spent hands on. Too much time sitting around waiting.nAll around disappointed in this for the price we paid - would have expected more.

Fabulous food and tuition

I am no cook and would not believe within a few hours that I could cook such lovely food! nGhan, was very personable, informative and funny. We had a great time. nWe booked direct with her and we were the only people so we had a choice of what we wanted to cook. nGreat day all round, thank you. nBlyth, Boo and Reuben

Fun, yum and authentic

Our day started with pick up from our hotel with the u201cchefu201d and her car. She was lovely, warm and friendly and put instantly at ease.nnThe market was amazing and not at all (thankfully) what we were expecting. There were no overpowering smells or confronting sights. Beautiful, fresh and exotic fruit and veggies, flowers, seafood, chicken, spices and curry pastes.nnOur u201cteacheru201d had excellent English and a fun, cheeky sense of humour. She welcomed us into her home and u201cher kitchen, her rulesu201d ud83dude04. Her instruction was the perfect mix of insight, education and involvement. nnYou do NOT need to wonder if you will have enough to eat, there is so much delicious food which you have created and get to enjoy. We cooked Pad Thai, Spring Rolls, made a green curry paste and a chicken curry with it and finished with a delicious sticky rice and mango.nnWas great for 2 capable cooks but something the family could enjoy together if the kids were interested. Basic knife skills are all thatu2019s required. Highly recommend.nnI suggest a light breakfast/lunch depending on your class time.

Brilliant and fun.

I took my Dad along to do this with me. He was hesitant to go but he loved it as much as me. The markets are fascinating, the ingredients are all so fresh and full of flavour. The Thai cooking hosts were very friendly and explained things really well. Would definitely recommend.

Humble, knowledgeable, feels like home

I would highly recommend if your visiting puket! Nothing but positive energy and a great learning experience. The group we were in was very pleasant and diverse. No matter your origin of culture we all came together as one to learn the traditional way of thai cooking. Sorry for buring the shallots!!!

An enjoyable cooking experience

Great experience

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the cookery course. The market tour was fascinating with so much to see and then we learnt how to prep the ingredients and to make several Thai dishes. Our teacher made the whole experience interesting and entertaining and we finished the afternoon by eating what we had made. It was delicious! Many thanks to our teacher and her hardworking niece for such an enjoyable time.
