The teacher, Pear, drove us up to their farm for 30 minutes in a nice place. She explained us how to proceed and after chosing 5 dishes: aperitive, main dish, soup, curry dish and dessert, we started to cook each one. With a break in the activity the teacher explained and helped us very well all the steps to create... More

Pear our instructor was amazing, great English and hilarious - really good handle on western sense of humour. She had us enthralled with her knowledge of Thai cooking and infectious personality. Each person gets to cook 5 meals and couples... More

We did this cook course while staying in Chiangmai, and it was just perfect. The cook teacher was very very nice and gave us loads of information and cool tips to cook Thai food at home. We had a visit to the market where she explained everything about ingredients and then we cooked 4 different meals. Final result: delicious!!!! I... More

People from the cookery school picked us up in our hostel on time, the group was small (9 people), we learned a lot in the market and in the course, and most important of all- we... More

A great day of cooking right off the bat. We were picked up a by a minibus in the morning and dropped off at a local market. The chef/teacher Palm was waiting for us there, and we started off exploring the market with its local produce. Palm quizzed us on local herbs and vegetables. He is a humorous character and... More

We managed to book into a cooking class last minute and was very happy to find ourselves with a great group and a very informative and fun leader/chef called Parm who took us around a local market introducing us to items of veg, herbs and spices we don't come across everyday. It was then a short walk back to the... More

We cooked 4 meals, including soup and curry paste, and it was amazing. Various, delicious and very well explaned,... More

My boyfriend does all the cooking back home, so when I took this course with a friend I joked that he would be truly surprised if I came back with ANY skills. But Pear was a phenomenal teacher who walked us through everything step by step and showed us the difference a teaspoon of sugar here or a little bit... More
