First off, this was the only place I could find open during Songkran. Vanee and her husband will normally pick you up from your hotel but because we were in the middle of "the square" with bad holiday traffic and craziness, we had to walk to a location just outside the moat. Vanee's communication and patience with me was above... More

We were recommended by another tour guide to take a class with Vannee and Meo. We were not disappointed! They accommodated our menu choices and requests and we felt comfortable and welcome. The food came out delicious and we all enjoyed it. Loved being picked up from the hotel. Shopping at the market for our ingredients was a lot of... More

My friend put me up to this and it was a brilliant day. Our hosts picked us up and drove us to the local wholesale food market Muang Mai if i remember correctly! Our host were absolutely lovely - a retired couple from Bangkok who had run a fairly sizeable Thai restaurant for 20 years. Very charming and amusing to... More

We did the afternoon class, we got to choose 4 dishes to cook out of an extensive list, the group was small, the instructor and her husband were fantastic. The recipe book is quite comprehensive and I can't wait to recreate dishes at home. Return hotel pickup/drop off included making this an easy choice.

I have always steered clear of cooking courses in Thailand, as they generally have Tom Yum, Green Curry, Mango sticky rice and all of the usual tourist fare. The reason I chose Classic Home Cooking school was because there is a huge list of dishes, and you choose what you want to cook, so you're not stuck with the usual... More

Had a great evening's cooking here. The fact you can choose dishes is a real plus. You then go to the market to buy some bits for them, then come back and cook up a storm. They usually limit numbers to six, so you get lots of personal attention. I cook a lot at home, so while the skills required... More

This was an amazing experience! They took us to the local market to get our ingredients and learn about some of the foods they have there. Then back to their place to begin. We cooked 6 dishes all together all with excellent instruction. The staff was so friendly and fun, I would recommend this to anyone looking for a cooking... More

I never give five star reviews, but this earned it. Literally zero complaints. Vannee is the perfect cooking instructor for my taste -- motherly, firm, patient, and thorough. Meo (who looks like a Thai Paul Sorvino) is a bit quieter, but still quite helpful. The amount of value you get for your money here is amazing.

Had a great time from the moment we got picked up. Going to the market to pick up ingredients and have many more things explained was very helpful. We really enjoyed the recipes and the amount of time devoted to us for the cooking. Definitely worth the value. The cookbook at the end is an excellent addition and we've used... More
