This was an awesome experience! For me I was lucky enough to be the only one joining this cooking class so for me it was a one on one teaching. I was able to learn how to prepare and make Thai dishes that I love! And the teacher was very nice!

A wonderful half day and an absolute must do. !!! Kam is the perfect hostess with a great mix of knowledge and sense of humour. I was picked up from my Hotel and taken to market first. Visiting the market was a great experience as was stopping at a little place and shown how coconut milk was made. Food was amazing and Kam is a patient teacher. Can’t wait to make again at home. All my favourite dishes. 3 main courses plus dessert. Boxed up all my uneaten wares for later. Loved the whole experience. Wonderful and a must for anyone who enjoys the Thai food and hospitality. Thank you Kam and I really hope we meet again. Best of luck and warmest regards for the future.

We spent most of the day with Kain, along with my teenage daughter, who ended up being the most interested in participating and learning! Along with carrying out all the scheduled activities, we enjoy a very welcoming atmosphere, in the neighborhood where Kain, our instructor, lives, being able to appreciate the beautiful and true way in which Thais prepare and share their food as a family. He even showed us his little garden and explained each of the spices he grows there for cooking. Something that stuck with me was his saying “a long time preparing, a short time cooking and a lot of time enjoying!!! And so was our cooking class, just like that! Very grateful, luck that we were able to meet you Kain, an honor!
