My brother and I completed this and luckily it was only us-so we got a private cooking class! She speaks perfect English and communication was not an issue. This class is very near the airport, I would highly recommend it! We made three dishes (a curry soup, eggplant salad and a pork stir fry) and they were unreal. The flavours were so fresh (we picked ingredients from her outside garden at the start of the tour), and the three dishes complimented one another perfectly. We learned regarding Thai food and culture associated with cooking, etc. Overall, it was completely worth it and I cannot recommend this tour highly enough!

Thanks to Jimmy for her wonderful guidance through the Thai cuisine. A fantastic green curry where we made and pounded our own curry paste from the freshest ingredients from Jimmy’s garden. Whipped up with coconut milk, basil and kaffir like, tender chicken pieces and Thai eggplant. Follows by Larb Moo Tord. Crispy and gentle spicy. Jimmy is great to mix stories and teaching and a good vibe. A wonderful experience in her cooking school.

Me and my boyfriend had been to Jimmy’s Kitchen several times. We had great time with them. Jimmy is very good cook.The latest visit was during Songkran this year (April 2018). Jimmy cooked us dinner and very delicious mango & sticky rice!!

Other authentic Thai dishes that we had at Jimmy’s Kitchen were Namtok-moo (Pork steak salad), Tom-kha-gai (Spicy and sour chicken and coconut soup), and many more!! Jimmy has also planted her own herbs and vegetable in the garden for cooking class as well. This is very fantastic and good opportunity to learn about ingredients for Thai cooking.

ジミー先生は笑顔がチャーミング。丁寧な対応でとても信頼&安心感のある先生です。市場での買い物、清潔で素敵なオープンエアのキッチン、整えられたお庭での材料の香草摘み、なにより美味しくできたトムヤムクン、ソムタム、豚の炒め物。全て大満足でした。朝、BTSウドムスック駅で待ち合わせて(LINEでやり取りしてくれてとても安心)、私がちょっと遅刻してしまったにも関わらず温かく迎えてくれました。そのまま近くの市場で、色々な材料を購入、ここも現地の方との交渉を見せてくれたり、野菜や魚といった素材や、謎のおいしいデザートなど細かく説明してくれました。料理は野菜の切り方やスリコギのコツを教えてくれたり、トムヤムクンも普段食べてるのは透明系かクリーミー系か事前に確認してくれて、辛さも調整してくれて、出来上がりめちゃくちゃ美味しかったです。
ちょっと駅からは100バーツ強くらいのタクシーの距離の住宅地の中にありますが、落ちついた雰囲気で丁寧に習いたい人に合いそうです。
ジミー先生は英語がむちゃくちゃうまいので英語ができるとよりいいですね!クラスは英語でした。
楽しい時間をありがとうございました。またバンコクを訪れる機会があればぜひ参加したいです!

Thank you very much, Jimmy.
I really really enjoyed your class!
You are full of warm hospitality.
I showed my friends not only some photos taken all dishes we cooked, but also your nice kitchen and lovely garden, and then They all said "fabulous!" and "awesome!".
I'd love the chance to visit your class again. Millie

We signed up our 14 year old son who loves cooking! He really enjoyed his hands on cooking class with Jimmy. He can now make curry paste from scratch! Jimmy is very patient and great at explaining. I joined for Day 2 and we did steamed thai fish with lime and coriander, noodle soup from scratch and pad thai. The class is in Jimmy's home - thus also a chance to see another side of Bangkok. Take a taxi from the BTS station. Easy! Can highly recommend a cooking class with Jimmy - she will also have suggestions on how to find alternative ingredients if you are not living in Thailand.

Had such a great afternoon with Jimmy, such a lovely host and fun too! Through her wealth of experience Jimmy was able to introduce me to the authentic way of Thai cooking. We started with a walk around her garden which had an abundance of different types of herbs, fruits and flowers. The herbs were freshly picked to use as part of the ingredients. Jimmy had prepared three menus; morning glory with bean sauce, tuna salad and a green chicken curry (paste made from scratch). They were all so delicious, the green curry is the best I have ever eaten!! Jimmy teaches you the basics of preparing your ingredients from start to finish to which I have quite a bit of practising to do. I maybe leaving Bangna on Sunday but I will be hearing Jimmy ringing in my ears commenting on my chopping whilst in my kitchen in home, I promise I will have corrected my chopping the next time you see me Jimmy ha ha!! On my next visit to Bangkok the first thing I will be doing is booking another session for yet another memorable experience. If you're looking for that special Thai cookery class this is the one, do not hesitate just book it you will not be disappointed!!

Jimmy's Kitchen is a fantastic idea and a great place to learn authentic Thai cooking with the wonderful Jimmy (Pathitta). In our case, she cooked a delicious vegan meal with such fantastic flavours. It was great having Jimmy's expertise in cooking and a real understanding of all kinds of diets to make us feel very much at home. As an added bonus, Jimmy has great local knowledge and can help with local attractions and things to do in the Bangkok area.
