We have a very enjoyable, relaxing day at their farm. We made 6 dishes in a very relaxed manner. We had time to relax between courses, even taking a bike ride through the neighborhood. The facilities are great, a certain amount is prepped for you. James was a great guide. We would do this activity again the next time we... More

Did a half day class and got to cook 3 dishes and eat it for lunch. Whole family had lots of fun, so much that our 8 year old asked if we could do another class.

Thoroughly enjoyed learning about Thai food and cooking it. Pear, our instructor, was helpful, funny, efficient and knowledgable. We had a really good day. Can't believe how much food we managed to cook in just a day....and how much food we managed to eat! I will definitely be taking some of my new found Thai cookery skills back home to... More

We booked the evening class and it was a perfect length of time for my husband and I. He was reluctant to go, but was really glad he did. It's a very personal class with a maximum of 8 people at a time. We made three delicious dishes each and she taught us about the different herbs and spices that... More

This was a fabulous day from beginning to end. I learned how to make a Thai soup, Pad Thai, green curry and fried banana. I can honestly say it was the best meal I've ever had! (How's that!?) The teacher 'Mint' was an excellent teacher; she really knows her stuff. I am a vegetarian and she knew exactly which flavours... More

Had a great day with Pear our cooking teacher at the farm cooking school. Was lovely to have a day away from the city and enjoyed the bike ride around the local village. The food we cooked was very tasty but simple to learn. Thank you Pear for a wonderful experience and good luck in Poland. Looking forward to trying... More
