We really enjoyed the cooking course. Our teacher Jan was the best. She took us to the market to buy the ingredients and told the group all about the different herbs, spices and cuts of meat. After a very peaceful boat ride (first by motor boat and then by row boat) we arrived at the kitchen garden for our class.... More

Thanks to Jan. She was gentle patient and very knowledgeable. The market was hot and crazy so welcomed the boat ride to cooking class. Made 4 delicious dishes under Jan's guidance. Best crispy rice pancakes we ate. They happily catered for us not eating beef too.

Fun professional delicious . So... More

When then grabbed a boat and headed out to an island to cook four lovely meals. All in all it was very enjoyable. Only negative to take away... More

Great fun and high quality instructions. Looked after very well from the start with an insightful market shop and boat ride to the kitchens. Simple steps that offer challenge for those who want it whilst still being achievable. Memorable experience in all the right ways
