    This was a fun and entertaining cooking class. We both enjoyed it a lot even though my partner is not the biggest fan of cooking. The instructor explained all the ingredients ver well, had us taste them directly from the plants in the garden, gave us enough time to visit with the rest of the group (we were 7 in total) and explained the cooking steps patiently. She also helped us know when the dish was cooked enough and ready for the next ingredient. We prepared 4 dishes (soup, 2 mains, 1 dessert). All dishes took no longer than about 5-10min. It was quite a lot of food and you can even ask for additional meat/shrimp/tofu if you’re extra hungry. There was a little questionnaire to fill out in the beginning where you‘ll be able to choose between different options for the soup and the mains. You receive the cook book with many more recipes than just the 4 via a QR code scan right away. So I Do not understand the reviews that say they didn’t get the cook book.

    very nice and unusual experience, got picked up at our hotel on time and drove about 30 minutes to rich the farm. our guide was helpful, friendly and funny, she showed us around the garden to made us taste all the ingredients. we made 4 different courses and ate them at the end. However we didn’t visit the local market as it was mentioned and we didn’t get the e-recipes book.
