Picking up was not so easy because our accommodation was somewhat hidden (apparently), but we were able to keep in touch with Whatsapp and finally found each other via the location. Then we went to the market and we were spoken in detail, unfortunately a little quickly, and explained all sorts of interesting things. Then we went to the place where we cook. Each of us cooked almost everything, it was super easy and fun. When I sprayed chilli paste in my eye, I was helped immediately. The food was very tasty. Chef and assistant were super well organized and could help us with everything and answer everything. We recommend!
The market was very interesting, it explained everything to us well. Cooking was super easy. The cook explained each menu step by step! We were thrilled !!!
An all round beautiful day, an absolute must when you go on holiday in Thailand. An incredibly nice team and unique food.
It was definitely worth it. Learns simple dishes that you can safely cook at home. Any time.
Chef Mong and his team were excellent and made for a fun day
