We do a cooking class in each country we travel in and this one was the worst so far!
We met at the Ben Than market, two Indian ladies were annoyed to find their confirmed booking was not on the guide's list. The market your was excellent and very interesting, then we caught a taxi to the school.
The class was held above the restaurant and they taught us how to cook a morning glory salad, fried spring rolls and chicken curry. These were all on the restaurants menu, we're simple to do but included almost all the same seasonings and spices - garlic, chilli, pepper, sugar, lime and fish sauce.
Pros - market tour, cheeky chefs
Cons - overly simple food that isn't going to impress your friends, expensive, poorly organised, they pre-prepare some items, menu choice was boring.
Note, we went to the restaurant later the night and it was incredible, far better than the cooking school experience.
