Me and my partner took the morning Thusday class which included the market tour. I personally am very glad we did the market tour as you see so many different intresting foods, but mostly because you see,feel,smell everything you will be using for your dishes. Vj is very knowledgeable and with her backround being a chef you no your in... More

I have always wanted to take cooking classes. While I am competent in the kitchen, I have no experience cooking Thai food (even though I am of Thai descent), but I have tons of experience eating! The recipes were simple and delicious. The classes are small 1-6 people, and I was lucky enough to get a private class. The class... More

My husband and I recently took the AM cooking class with VJ and it was incredible! We started at the market and VJ taught us so much about Thai ingredients. After we headed back to the kitchen and worked out our muscles making our own green curry paste for the green thai curry! We also whipped up a chicken, veggie... More

We had a great time learning to cook our favourite Thai dishes. VJ was lovely and the food was so good. The cooking school is cute, intimate and very clean. They make it very easy to learn how to cook the dishes even if you're not much of a cook. Don't fill up on the first dish!

Just got back from our class. Loved the market tour and seeing produce that we don't have at home. Making green curry paste from scratch made a difference to the flavour. Highly recommend this experience and the follow up with VJ on our booking was excellent.

Thank Bruce & Angela H
