Fran is a cool Italian girl with clearly a great deal of experience with Thai and S. Asian food and people. She gives you a good inside for all the right ingredients which are so important for when you made Thai food and she makes the whole experience of learning Thai cuisine so fun and enjoyable but also she is...

This was the second class I've taken with Fran - this time learning a Thai menu which included green chicken curry, prawn fritters and the most UNBELIEVABLE sausages (as unlikely as that sounds). Friendly, relaxed and a born teacher - you learn without it feeling like a lesson. And you do the dishes entirely by yourselves, each of the maximum... More

Fran created such a friendly, relaxing atmosphere from the very beginning. Id happily spend the night just chatting with her. Her teaching style caters to all levels and learning styles. Lapan cooking classes are a cut above the rest for these reasons but also for the value for money, intimate set up and attention to detail. This was a surprise... More

Four of us from the same family went along to Fran's cookery school on Saturday 14 November 2015. We chose set menu 5 although any of the set menus would have been great. The set up is informal although structured. Fran makes the experience a lot of fun and she's very easy to get on with. We each cooked single... More

Can not recommend Lapan cooking classes highly enough. We were a group of Malaysian ladies who wanted to scrub up on our skills, learn more about authentic Malaysian dishes whilst having a fun time - Fran facilitated all of that and more! Fran has a wealth of knowledge to share, a friendly demeanour and professional set up. Everything was well... More

I did one of the Thai cooking classes a few weeks ago and the proof is now in ... I've been cooking the dishes we made in the class at home and they are just as good. To be honest I find this little short of a miracle as I am NOT a confident cook, don't come from a cooking-type... More

We attended Lapan Cooking on the 3rd of May 2015 and cooked Thai set menu 1. I bought this as a birthday gift for my husband who is obsessed with Thai food!! We were both quite nervous having never done a cookery class before, but from the moment we met Fran she made us feel at ease and welcome in... More

Attended the class as part of a Christmas present for my better half. Lapan cooking school is hosted by the charismatic Fran in their well equipped kitchen. The class size was great (Max four) and we had a really good laugh with the other couple present! We had Malaysian menu 9 - lamb curry, aubergine preserve, banana leaf grill prawns... More

I came to learn how to cook some SE Asian dishes. All the ingredients were prepared, and I left the house with a nice print out to remember the recipes.I found the chef was very friendly and good at e xplaining the different steps. I highly recommend the Mee Rebus one !!

Thoroughly enjoyable evening. Would definitely recommend. Went to an evening class with my mum & cooked Thai menu 5. Fran is very friendly & well organised. We not only learnt to cook the dishes, but also about the key ingredients & balance of flavour in Thai cooking. Best spring rolls & sweet chilli sauce we've ever tasted!
