Sammy is an enthusiastic man and an excellent host and teacher. He took us to the local market first and taught us important things about different types of rice and other ingredients which we thought was great. His farm is a stunning place to have a cooking course and he hand picks all the ingredients from it just before you... More

Fantastic cooking class that we did with our 2 boys (aged 5 and 8). Sammy and his wife were so accommodating with the kids, they even had kids' sized aprons. Interesting visit to the market first, before heading to their gorgeous farm. Great selection of wonderful Thai dishes to prepare. The only thing I would say is that the break... More

An absolutely fantastic cooking course. Very informative and great fun. Sammy and his staff patiently work through several dishes ensuring novices and more experienced cooks get plenty out of the experience. The cookbook we were given at the end was brilliantly put together and has made it easy for us to recreate those tasty dishes since we got home. There... More

Both Sammy and his wife are incredibly kind and bubbly people. Both spoke amazing English and had an excellent sense of humour. We learnt tasty dishes and met some lovely people. Believe me you won't need breakfast before you go because you'll need space for the five amazing dishes you learn. Such a great day! even had a nap next... More
