I love it. The local shopping trip was great. And learning to cook my favourite food was the best of the trip to Thailand. I’m not confident and rated my cooking with the dishes that I learn to cook at the class was better than any Thai restaurant that I have eaten in Australia. I was so motivate to start my little Thai garden as soon as I get back to Australia so that I can get the fresh ingredients and herb that I needed right in my garden ( I live in an area where I could not find the ingredients I need). I would recommended that who ever love eating Thai food should take the time to do this course. As my trip was pack and I have to reschedule my time to take the course. I was hoping to take another course for others dishes that I wanted to learn but the class was fully book while I’m in Bangkok. Will have to try to get into others courses next time.

This is a great "activity" to do when you are in Bangkok. Fantastic guidance and you get to make some really nice food. And best thing is to eat it after!! They also take great care of vegetarian, people with food allergies etc!

We had an excellent morning with a very talented cook who taught us to make some delicious food after she took us around the market and gave us lots of information about different foods used in Thailand. Would highly recommend

Absolutely worth it!!!! Interesting visit to the market with lots of explanations of the ingredients bought. The subsequent cooking was just perfectly prepared and assisted. The food itself tasted excellent.

Thank you very much for this great cooking class and the great tour of the market! Everything tasted delicious and was a lot of fun
