We had such a great time at Phuket Thai Cooking class. Firstly, we went to the local market where the locals buy their ingredients, then we cooked 3 amazing Thai dishes and a tasty Thai dessert. The class was very informative so overall this is such as great value for money!

Really interesting and engaging few hours spent cooking with VJ. She explained the importance of the various key Thai ingredients, explained to us what we could and couldn’t substitute once we’re back home, and guided us through making four delicious dishes (if I do say so myself!) from scratch. Having done a number of cooking classes previously across the world, this would rank as one of the best I’ve done. Would 100% recommend for anyone with an interest in Thai food & cooking.

The VJ and her assistants refined the cooking class to perfection. It was a highlight of our vacation since we could not find real authentic Thai food from our short stay in Phuket. We cooked Pad Thai, Tom Yam Goong, Chicken with basil source, and red and green curry. They were far better because all ingredients are perfectly portioned, well prepared (chicken stock), local fresh ingredients. Timing, consistency, and local special ingredients are hard to learn from books and Youtube. What we learned from VJ will forever change the way we cook Thai food.

We joined in on the cooking class this morning, it was brilliant we was picked up by VJ ( who on a side note was really nice) from our hotel bang on time, we went to the food market and got shown around as VJ shared her vast knowledge on all the Thai ingredients along with choosing fresh ingredients for the class. I’ve never done a cooking class so had no expectations, but the day was great. We got all the helpful hints to cooking some great Thai dishes. We got to eat what we cooked and anything we couldn’t eat, as we was stuffed we took the left overs with us. Highly recommend from the pair of us.

Thai food is among my personal favorites and one of the experiences I was most looking forward to was taking a cooking class in Phuket. Chef VJ and her amazing staff made everything very accessible and fun. My wife and I came away with an even greater appreciation for Thai Food and some newfound skills to bring home.

Always loved thai food so why not learn how to cook them as well....We went for lunch with Monty-our tailor and he mentiond that his wife and friends has this cooking school. Why not! The class was on Monday and so we had the market trip as well. We were introduced to different thai ingredients and what all we can use to replace these at home.I am not a good cook so I couldn't remember the methods much but to my husband, it was very easy. There were 4 others as well in the class- also Aussies, so we had so much fun together. It lasted 2 hours and we learnt 3 dishes, cooked and ate together. We were given printed recipes too. We have had 2 thai food parties already since we came back. Wow!!

We were picked up at our hotel and taken to a market where VJ met us. VJ took us around the market and explained the different vegetables. We were also able to buy spices to take home with us.

We then went to the cooking class. The whole class was so well prepared, all very modern, clean and so much fun!

We cooked 4 courses in total, one of which was done as a group, which was mango and sticky rice. VJ explained everything we cooked and answered any questions we had. We ate as a group after each course we cooked.

I would highly recommend VJ’s cooking class and I would do it again if I was ever back in Phuket.

VJ, thank you so much for such a fun morning/afternoon!

Where do I start..
I’ve travelled the world solo for many years now, for many reason.
I love getting out and trying new things.

One of my passions is cooking.
So without a doubt what would a Thailand trip be with out a cooking class.

Booking via TripAdvisor it was hassle free and so simple.
Conformation came through straight away which what we all like.
Convenience and easy access.

Vijay “the chef who runs the class” communicated to me via the inbox on TripAdvisor. For pick up times and room number.

She was extremely lovely to speak with, Vijay was punctual to the minute when picking me up the next day.

There was a lovely couple from England who were also in the class.

We stopped in at local food markets where Vijay explained the process of how locals source produce. We tried a few things whilst touring, it was lovely 😊

We all Hoped in Vijay’s private care and drove to the establishment.
There we met to beautiful ladies who were Vijay’s assistants. Table was set with chopping board and some ingredients along with a mortar and pestle.

There we put our aprons on and started the class.
One thing I loved was Vijay’s constant communication to us throughout the class.
Travelling solo Vijay assisted with being my personal photographer also🥰.

We were allowed to take pictures to remember the method and presentation of the dishes for when we go home to cook.

I have attached some pics from the day but photos cannot do this experience justice.
You must partake in this experience when in Phuket.

On another positive note as I was unable to eat it all of the days dishes, Vijay provided take away containers for me that add extra that makes things more enjoyable.
After class we said farewell and Vijay dropped me back to my villa.

Overall I will walk away sharing such a positive experience with everyone.

Thank you for such a wonderful day that was not only educational but very enjoyable.
I was also given a lovely fridge magnet and I purchased a apron to take home to use when recreating these beautiful Thai dishes.

Thank you Vijay and your two lovely assistants this experience like I said was more than I could have hoped for!
