    Highlight of our holiday
    This is the second time we booked a cooking class with Chel. This time my sister also accompanied my daughter and I as we prepared a feast that our husbands joined us in devouring. We started our day with a market tour to pick up our ingredients and then moved to Chels beautiful open kitchen set high within the hills of Karon. An amazing setting to prepare some amazing meals and learn some valuable techniques for when we return home. We even learnt to grate our own cocunt to make our mango sticky rice dish - which was by far the most delicious sticky rice I have ever tasted! We cannot recommend Chel enough. I love that she is able to accommodate small groups ( it was only us 3 and last time it was only my daughter and I) which makes it feel far more like you are cooking at someone's home rather than a cooking school. Chel is such a delightful person who will do anything for you. She even assisted me in buying a sticky rice steamer so I could recreate the sticky rice at home. During our Phuket stay we went to phi phi Island, saw elephants and had lots of memorable experiences but by far the highlight for us was attending this class and spending the afternoon eating and enjoying the setting. Thank you Chel. We will be back.

    Fabulous Thai cooking experience
    Booked online for a cooking class whilst on holidays. Was fortunate we were the only couple on the lesson so received a very personalised class. We were collected from our accommodation and went to the local fresh food market for a tour and to get all the ingredients for the lesson then headed straight in to the hills to Miss Chel’s restaurant. Lesson was very good as the food we cooked was fantastic and better than some of the restaurants we had already dined at. We really recommend this class.

    Fantastic cooking class
    Amazing cooking lesson, Miss Chel is an excellent host and brilliant teacher. She took us around the market and we were taught at her beautiful restaurant surrounded by trees and plants and being watched by her local friendly iguana. Would happily sign up again, my wife and kids loved it.

    Learn to cook with ease
    Great quiet place to learn how to cook Thai food. You get to eat what you have cooked and even take it back to Hotel room if you can’t eat it all. Pick up from Hotel and drop back. We had a great time learning. Thank you so much 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

    Great Thai cooking workshop in a fabulous jungle setting
    We Had a fantastics time at Chel’s Thai cooking workshop. We shopped for ingredients in a local fresh food market, she explained and showed us all the spices, vegetables, fruits and seafood. We then cooked springrolls, shrimp soup Tom Yum Kung, pad thai and chicken green curry. All in an amazing setting of Jungle restaurant terrace overlooking jungle of course. Thoroughly recommend!

We looked at Miss Chels website and contacted her through there but also on WhatsApp. We were glad we did because she told us later she is having problems with the site and asked people to contact her through WhatsApp.
We booked the evening class and was picked up on time by her driver at 18.00 and taken to her home and restaurant. We were greeted and given a bottle of water and time to relax. Miss Chel then took us to the cooking station where she explained she uses many ingredients grown in her own garden. We prepared spring rolls and papaya salad which we then ate at our table . We then had 10 minutes before preparing our main course , green curry. All the instructions were again really good.
We had a great evening and would highly recommend Miss Chel.

What an amazing experience to be shown, than be able to create 4 different Thai dishes. The day started with a pickup at our local hotel by Miss Chel herself, followed by a trip through the market to pickup fresh ingredients. She and her helpers went through very well thought out preparation, and then we were allowed to enjoy our creations on a veranda looking out over the jungle. The instruction was amazing, and she had a well equipped kitchen to teach and learn in.
Less expensive than some of the others we researched, and worth every Baht!

Highly recommend!

Miss Chel is an excellent teacher, chef, and fun person to be with. She took us to the market to purchase our items for cooking then we went to her restaurant where we did the cooking. Every dish was well explained and I felt like I really learned a LOT about Thai cooking methods and Thai cuisine. Highly recommend

If you are at all interested in thai cooking and want to have a good time, this is the place for you!

We were picked up at our hotel, the service was already at this point super friendly. The scenery from where the cooking class is held is beautiful and the space was open and easy to work in.

We chose the class with four dishes. After each dish was made, we ate. After two dishes we went to the local market. We get to see, smell and taste so many different ingridients used in the thai kitchen. If possible, book your class on a Monday or Thursday, so that you get to go to the bigger, better market that is only open on these days.

After the market we made the two last dishes. I suggest you don’t eat anything before the class, because theres gonna be a lot of delicious food!

I had such a great time cooking with Chel. She is the most lovely person and takes really good care of her customers. She is also a great teacher, and most of all a brilliant cook. Everything about this class was well organized and really worth your money. I would love to visit Chel’s cooking class again. I promise this is the best cooking class you will find!

Amazing, Amazing! I booked the Cooking Class from Miss Chel easy over Whats App. She responded to me directly and picked us up a few days later at 3.30pm from our hotel. Her open Kitchen / Restaurant is amazing in the middle of the jungle with a beautiful view. We prepared Papaya Salad, cooked Pad Thai, Green Curry and Mango Sticky Rice. Miss Chel showed us step by step and really professional, with fresh ingredients how to cook the delicious Thai Food. Ir was raining before, so we went after to the local market. Thank you for s great time!

This was an amazing class! My son and I had such a fun time with instructor. I highly recommend this class, we made mango sticky rice, green curry and many more in about 4 hours. We had a lovely sit down lunch enjoying our feast. I can't wait to go back so I can take another class with Chel ! So fun, funny, and super informative. We even got a recipe book sent by whatsapp afterwards.

We had an amazing morning with Chel. We where picked up in the morning and whisked off to the local market were Miss Chel met us and showed us around the market and showed us how coconut cream and milk was freshly made.

We then went up the cooking/school restaurant we did the 5 dish programme and we where full as full could be. The dishes where relish and we can’t wait to make them now we are at home. I highly recommend this school

We were picked up from our resort and taken to a local market for an informative tour of the different ingredients. Then off to the cooking restaurant with views over the surrounding jungle. Miss Chel did an excellent job of explaining how to cook each dish and also took us for a tour of her garden. A very pleasant afternoon. Everything we cooked was delicious and we left very full.
