100% must do!
Feb 2020 • Friends
Amazing experience! The food was amazing and everything was explained in detail of what we were making and how each ingredient worked in the dish. The trip to the market was the cherry on top! 100% a must do when visiting Pai! We did the 5 course plan!

Amazing food and friendly funny chef!
Jan 2020 • Couples
We can't recomend Gaew's cookery class highly enough, she was very friendly and we had a great time not only cooking delicious food but also getting to know her and hear some of her stories!

We could pick virtually anything we wanted to make and it was completely customizable to what we wanted to cook.

We had been looking at doing a class for awhile in Thailand and glad we waited until Pai, not only are the prices extremely cheap compared to other areas of the country the quality local ingredients were delicious and being able to walk round the local market with her asking questions and being given tips on what to look out for when buying ingredients was great!

All in all brilliant 4 hours spent at Pai Cookery School and we were absolutely stuffed when we left!
Thanks Gaew :)

Amazing Thai cooking experience
Sep 2019 • Solo
I found Pai's cooking class on trip advisor, and can say all her amazing reviews are well earnt. Her class provides the option of a market tour, which I would recommend adding in because it was such a great experience walking around with ice coffee, and learning about the ingredients we would cook with. Her home where the cooking class takes place is extremely welcoming and clean. Pai finds the perfect balance between instructing you and letting you cook your own dishes. She is very knowledgeable and can answer any questions you might have.

I had a wonderful time chatting to her, and will remeber this experience for years to come.

Amazing cooking class

The cooking class was really good. We made our own chili paste, some pad thai and a great stir fry. The teacher was very helpful.

THE BEST!
May 2019 • Friends
May was the absolute best. Had the most delicious meals and so many fun facts throughout the whole experience. She even kept us after it started raining and served us smoothies so that we would not have to walk home in the rain. Ran into her in the street the next day and told us one of us forgot a scarf and our cookbook ad offered to bring it to us. Genuinely the most kind woman and the most entertaining cooking class I have ever done. MUST DO in Pai.

What an experience!
May 2019 • Solo
I booked onto the afternoon session not really knowing what to expect but can honestly say that I absolutely loved it! Gaew, the instructor, is a such a great and funny character and had me laughing all day. I loved the fact that she also took us into the street markets and got us to taste so many local delicacies and fruits and told us so much about the food on offer, how it is cooked, how to spot a good/bad batch etc. We ended cooking up 5 great meals, and received a free recipe book also. Was a generally friendly and relaxed environment.

Great cookery school. What a positive experience!
Apr 2019 • Couples
My partner and I booked onto the afternoon course which we found to be a great experience. It just happened to be us in the class which was an extra bonus as we got one to one. Gaew the chef and leader of the school was really experienced and taught us well. She was really clear with her instructions with teaching us. We made 5 delicious dishes and she tweaked some of them for me as I’m a veggie. She took us on a short tour of the local market where she spoke about all the different fruit, veg and meat, giving us lots of interesting facts. She also bought us a few different fruits to let us taste them.
Book onto this course if you want to be taught by a really talented chef who knows her stuff. Please don’t be put off by others negative reviews. We personally found her welcoming with a clear passion for cooking.

Sam and Matt :)

Fun afternoon!
Jan 2019 • Solo
I completely agree with everything people who gave one star said - Gaew did appear unfriendly, did more than explained, and seemed to not want to be there. Or that's what I thought for the first hour or so. Throughout the day, I liked her more and more. She's super knowledgeable - if not a trained educator - and her style is hilarious and endearing. She does do a lot without explaining, so I had to ask follow up questions, but I got a great feel for what cooking Thai food is like - though it will take me a few more tries to feel comfortable.

A Negative Experience
Nov 2018 • Solo
I was so looking forward to taking this cooking class but I was highly disappointed in the overall experience when I left. I thought Gaew was both unprofessional and unfriendly. She spent over half the class on her phone smoking a cigarette and her instructions were mostly telling me when to add the next ingredient. It appeared that she didn’t want to be there and she did not do a good job of making me feel welcome. On the plus side - she is a good chef, we did make three delicious dishes, and I did learn a few new things about cooking Thai food. So if you’re only looking to be lightly instructed on a few dishes and not much else, then this may be for you. But given the overall negative atmosphere provided in this cooking class, I do not recommend it.
