During the day you are taken out to a local market and shown and explained all the ingredients we would be using that day. All were purchased on our behalf, and we carried them back in baskets. We each cooked 5 dishes out of a choice of 25. The instructions were good, although sometimes hard to understand due to one... More

We went to the market to buy the things we needed. During the cooking class we were divided in different groups... More

The morning began with some information about the ingredients we would be using followed by a brief walk to the local market. Our instructor "Lady" was friendly, personable and spoke great English. Whilst at the market, fresh ingredients that we would... More

My husband and I visited this cookery school early this year. All the dishes being taught were delicious and we were able to cook exactly the same taste as the restaurants outside when following the steps. We even squeezed by ourselves our own coconut cream/ milk. Recommended.

One of the most memorable moments during my trip was learning Thai disheshere because it was my first time to really cook something. The evening class is shorter with knowing key ingredients in the local market, cooking four dishes (excluding the dessert), and enjoying them. You can choose your favourite dish from each category (mine: pad Thai, coconut chicken soup,... More

The positives: they picked us up from and returned us to the hotel at the agreed time. No surprises with the payment nor with the schedule. You will cook in an authentic local environment. The not so positive: they guy who picked us up at the hotel didn't even bother to say good morning. He turned out to be our... More

Our teacher for the day was a really friendly local man called 'A'. He made is feel at home right away and explained the concept and ideas behind the cooking school. We walked... More

I loved learning about all the ingredients and going to the market. There is a fairly big choice of foods that you can learn to cook - you choose an appetizer, a curry, a soup, a stir-fried dish and a dessert. The instructors are friendly, speak good English, are happy to answer questions and take photos of you cooking. You... More

What a wonderful experience cooking school was! I rarely cook at home and the last thing I would call myself is a "Good Cook". Nevertheless, the cooking instructors at Baan Thai were so helpful and knowledgeable. The night began with our trip to the local food market where we got to learn all the names of the items we would... More
