A little background....We are a boutique accounting firm located on the Sunshine Coast who went looking for something different and unique to enjoy for our work Chirstmas function 2012. After much discussion and an extensive search, we finally settled on the Tamarind Resort Thai Cooking School. We thought it would also be fun to utilise our Christmas function as a team building exercise, an opportunity to work together in another capacity, outside of our usual day to day jobs.
We took up the entire class room and had a fantastic time, our Chef 'Josh' was extremly personable, informative, knowledgable and more importantly very congenial, he put us at ease and ensured that we were all on our game! The ingredients were authentic and extremely fresh, all provided by local growers or out of Tamarinds very own garden....A botanical experience to behold!
We found the staff, location, facilities and environment to be very special....We learnt, cooked, laughed (quite a bit) and finally sat down to enjoy the spoils of our time together over a glass of wine, followed by a leisurley walk down to Gardners Falls....An absolutely delightful day!
All in all, we cannot recommend Tamarind Resort highly enough....It caters to so many different markets and is a real gem in the hinterland crown....Thank you and well done!
