What a great idea we had when we booked a day with Sammy. The pick up, the pit stop at the market, the teaching, the food, the attitude, the place, the chill time between dishes on hammocks, the family, the farm are really worth my 5 ⭐️. Thank you for your professionalism and spirit. We will share your cooking with... More

Great experience with Sammy and his farm, and probably one of the best toilets in the world :) After he picked us from each hotel, we visited a lovely local market where he explained to us main of Thai ingredients. Later we went to his organic farm and under funny instructions we prepared 5 Thai dishes with a hammock nap... More

That was our 2nd cooking school in Thailand. The first one in Bangkok was great, but the Sammy's was even better. After pick-up from hotel, we went to the market and experience a lot of authentic Thai groceries. Later, we went to Sammy's farm which is surrounded by rice fields. We cooked many delicious dishes and also have a afternoon... More

We had decided we wanted to go to a cooking course and booked on with Sammy after reading all the great reviews. We weren't disappointed. The first stop was a local market, to see how coconut milk is produced and look at all of the fresh produce. This was a great experience as the market was not touristy at all... More

Sammy is hilarious and a great cooking instructor! Sammy picked us up at our hotel in the morning, took us to the market for some shopping and then to his farm. We got to smell and taste the ingredients (lemongrass, Thai basil, ginger etc.) before we started to cook. We were asked to select 5 Thai dishes that we wanted... More

Sammy is fantastic and hilarious. He takes you to a legit Thai market and explains the ingredients and other Thai foods. Then you go to his farm where he shows you more food and how it grows. You pick your menu (5 dishes and there are two or three options for each dish) and then he teaches you how to... More

This class was recommended to us by our hostel and it was perfect. Sammy is an excellent host and possibly the funniest person in Thailand. We learnt to cook 5 different dishes which were all delicious. But it's not just the cooking and learning about the ingredients that makes this a great thing to do, you have an afternoon siesta...

Had a brilliant day at Sammy's farm learning to cook 5 Thai dishes. The trip to the market was fascinating and Sammy and his family's farm is beautiful and so relaxing - especially the lunchtime naps in the hammocks! Sammy and his wife are a beautiful, welcoming couple and very funny - the whole day was perfect and we would... More

This was a memorable experience, learning the ingredients from picking at the market, to cooking it yourself. Sammy, his wife, and staff were friendly and answered all the cooking questions that came to mind. Don't eat breakfast before coming, because you will leave in a "food coma". It's for any and all ages, as there were kids in our class... More

It was a super funny cooking experience! Sammy is great, he keeps making jokes every minute. He is just hilarious! About hiding chilli's in the food, his toilet and hammocks. We learned to cook different kind of foods. Had to make our own curry paste. For the first few dishes, we had to chop everything ourselves. To save some time,... More
