About
Hi, my name is Apple and I would love to show you some of the secrets of Thai cooking. I have created a cosy kitchen overlooking the river not too far from Khao Lak’s town centre. I learnt to cook food the traditional way, helping my Mama in the kitchen from an early age. I have also run a popular Thai restaurant and more recently I cook daily for my guests at popular guest house.

Amazing cooking class and insight into Thai food culture
Feb 2020
Earlier this year my family visited Khoa Lak and for my mothers birthday we organised a cooking Class with Apple.

It was an amazing experiences from start to finish, we were picked up from our resort and driven to the Food markets, where we walked through and got an explanation of anything we were unsure about from Apple. It was amazing to see the fresh produce, fish and poultry.

From here we went back and cooked 4 delicious meals my favourite was hard to pick between the vegetarian spring rolls and Bananas flower salad. We were a difficult group with 2 vegetarians, two vegans and one normal meat eater and Apple accommodated everyone!

Highly recomend if you are interested in cooking and want a great way to spend a day. Apple's English is awesome and I could not fault it in anyway :)

Thanks for some wonderful memories

Fantastic experience
Nov 2019
The experience starts from your hotel, you are collected and head to the local market, Apple takes you through the market and you get to see some great produce. After the market the fun really begins, I'm not going to give all the little suprises away! Apple is very welcoming and her English was the best we encountered during our holiday. This was my top experience whilst in Thailand and worth every penny, I can't recommend Apple enough.

Great experience cooking traditional Thai food plus a visit to a local market.
Mar 2020
Saw an advertisement at a bar close to our hotel...before we knew it we had made contact, and Apple was collecting us from our hotel and escorting us around her local market. She encouraged us to try various foods, pointing out the traditional Thai delicacies on display.
Apple was very professional, efficient and approachable with a good sense of humour. We learnt to cook Spring Rolls and two different savoury Thai dishes plus a dessert of banana and chocolate spring rolls....to die for ❣❣
As a side show, we were distracted by the antics of Monitor Lizards in the river beside the kitchen. Highly recommended.

Excellent
Mar 2020
My husband and I attended Apple’s cooking school on the 20th March this year. From the moment we met Apple we felt very at ease as she is very friendly. First of all we went to collect another fellow trainee, then we went to the local food market. Apple took time to describe the vegetables, fish and produce to us. Explained about the various spices, pastes etc. We then continued to her cooking school where again Apple explained everything to us. We had an amazing morning and cooked some beautiful Thai Food, which we all had for lunch. Also Apple helped us with so e vegetable shaping into flowers etc. we all met as strangers and parted as friends.

Excellent morning with Apple
Mar 2020 • Couples
We took a cooking class with Apple on a very hot December day. From the start Apple was so friendly and easy to talk to - her English is superb! We started at the market which was great to see how the locals shop. Then we went back to Apple’s beautiful kitchen set next to a lovely river. We all chose a dish and she taught us how to make each of them - with a little help from her lovely daughter too! Apple kept us cool with lots of drinks like tradition Thai juice, water and Coca Cola. After everything was cooked we sat as a group with Apple and shared all the dishes which was lovely. You won’t go hungry, the portions are huge! Apple has since followed up with more Thai recipes so we can keep cooking. Thank you Apple for a lovely afternoon.

I had a great and tasty time at Apple's Riverside Thai Cooking Class. Delicious recipes and a wonderful host. The visit at the market in the morning, the cooking class, the feast - all in all a perfect experience. Will do it the next time again - for sure :)

Amazing Thai Cuisine Experience!
Mar 2020 • Couples
We had a great time at Riverside Thai Cooking. After our first contact via the Website Apple immediately responded via E-Mail. She picked us up at the Hotel and brought us to the Cooking School. We both and another Couple learned 5 Dishes and Apple even cooked us a Dessert. We learned about food Carving and the Spring Roll folding techniques.
If you’re looking for an fun and authentic Thai Cuisine Experience I would definitely recommend this Course.

Fantastic cooking class with Apple
Mar 2020
Apple was a fabulous teacher and we learned how to make really delicious Thai food. We got picked up and taken to the local market where we go to see and buy some of the ingredients for our meals. We then cooked and ate the fabulous food. We also got the recipes emailed to us so we can keep on cooking at home.
Can really recommend this for any one staying in Khao Lak!

Amazing cooking class!!!
Feb 2020 • Couples
Amazing cooking class!!! Highly recommended. Attended the class on 26/2/20. Booked through website using WhatsApp. Very easy booking. Excellent value for money. Apple picked us up from our hotel. We went to local food market and then to riverside to start cooking. My son and I were part of a group of 7. Excellent teaching by Apple. Learnt so much and we all enjoyed trying the different dishes cooked by the class. Refreshments all included in the price. Also recipes emailed by Apple within a couple of days. I returned home on Saturday and have already tried out my 1st dish. Looking forward to trying all the dishes. Thanks to Apple for a great day. My son Will and I enjoyed every minute. X x

Amazing cookery class with Apple!
Feb 2020
Apple was an amazing teacher who helped us learn how to make delicious Spring Rolls, Massaman and Cashew Chicken during a 3/4 hour afternoon class. She happily shared other recipes with us too and helped us source some Thai ingredients so we can make these dishes back home.

I couldn't recommend Riverside Cooking more highly!
