My brother and I took this cooking class and we loved it. The staff was great and the facility they used was well kept and nice. The food we cooked was so good and I really enjoyed walking around and learning about the vegetables we were going to include in our dishes and picking them out from the gardens. Definitely worth the money and a unique experience!

A great experience! The informative visit to the market, the guided walk through the garden where we got to taste and smell different herbs, and the actual cooking process were all super fun. I was pretty impressed with the end product-- delicious and so satisfying to know that I'd made it myself. I highly recommend.

This was a lovely experience. Cooking outside on the farm was really nice. Market tour was nice and informative. The dishes that were cooked were very yummy and instructor’s are very fun and helpful. Pick up and drop off was on time. Free bottles of water included and lovely scenery

What a great experience in a lovely setting on a local organic farm. Cooking and sourcing the ingredients with peak results gives you an appreciation of Thai flavours and cooking styles.

Cooking with organic ingredients made foods more delicious. It was really fun.
