The tour started off with a walk around the local market. Our cooking instructor Palm was knowledgable and introduced us to a variety of Thai vegetables, herbs and spices. We got to see, touch and smell them which was a good way to learn about them. After that we took a local train ride to the cooking school, the train... More

the cooking part was really enjoyable and the food tasted great, however the market tour was to a supermarket, not to the local markets which was really disappointing.

We were booked on a full day course and loved every minute of it. Our instructor Palm was friendly knowledgeable and very funny. We started with a visit to a local food market got our ingredients and took a 20 minute train ride and 5 minute cycle to a small village where we could have a choice of cooking 5... More

This is the best cooking class I've ever taken, and probably the best you'll ever take, too. It's completely hands on--you get your own work station and everything to make fresh Thai food. Not everyone in the class cooks the same thing, because you can tailor your menu for the day and customize how spicy you'd like each dish to... More

I always fancy cooking classes, and they mostly make a holiday special. Not this one. I booked class 2 days before (normally more than sufficient time to get a class). My agent called my hotel on the day itself, to tell us that the bus would come to pick us up at 230pm instead of 150pm. After exchanging several calls,... More

I went to this cooking class a week ago on my own. There were two others that were also on their own as well as a group of 4 from a family that made up our class. Our group meshed really well together and we became friends very quickly laughing and sharing stories all the while. Mac was our instructor... More

We've just enjoyed the evening learning to cook new foods. We were picked up from our hotel and taken to what initially looked like a bit of a dodgy set up, but it was surprisingly clean and well organised. There is no air conditioning, but they have several fans. For this reason we are glad to have done the evening... More

We had an amazing morning cooking and laughing with June. You get to choose from a big variety of dishes with all your favorites there. Meals can be prepared to taste and spice level. You get a little recipe book at the end which will fit perfect in your luggage. If you have a spare couple of hours I suggest... More

We booked an evening course with smart cook krabi through our hostel. They arrived to pick us up and drove us to the school. Our instructor Pear was lovely and had a great sense of humor and made feel really welcome. The class went really well and we learned to cook some tasty food. When we were finished, they arranged...
