I have been wanting to do a cooking course in Thailand for ages but was nervous of paying for a class where everything would simply be done for me and I wouldn't learn anything. This is not the case in Mina's kitchen at all! She welcomes you into her beautiful home like a family member and teaches from the heart.... More

We booked a cooking class with Mina for our family of four. We had the best time ever! Mina is very kind, full of knowledge and has a great way of getting the children involved. She lives in a beautiful house with great surrounding countryside. We will enjoy cooking thai style at home now!

I highly recommend this course for anyone visiting Koh Yao. Mina is both an excellent cook and teacher. I was amazed that we were able to cook so many flavourful dishes (pad Thai, yellow curry with fish, chicken stir fry, massaman curry, and banana fritters) in such a short period of time. She then packaged everything up for us to... More

Absolutely fabulous experience! We've been into Thai food for many years and got new, fresh inspiration to cook more at home (actually had Mina's pad thai today). Mina's teaching style was personal, in her own, nice and clean home. We were delighted to be hands on during the whole cooking process, and she also did well with our 5 year... More

Mina is an incredible host and teacher. The presentation of beautiful fresh ingredients, her explanation of the importance of each spice/ herb/ flavor, her encouraging instruction....all made for a truly delightful evening. I couldn't believe the meal we ended up creating! And we got to leave with a lovely cookbook to try the recipes at home. I recommend this experience... More

I'll make it short: if you're on Koh Yao Noi, go and book this class!!! We had an amazing time with Mina and learned a lot about different ingredients and Thai cuisine! Mina is a delightful host and an amazing cook. She has a great way of explaining and teaching. Can't wait to come home and try all the different... More

4 of us went for an afternoon cooking class at Mina's and what fun we had! Mina was very friendly, knowledgable and her food was delicious. We learnt a lot about Thai ingredients and how to make Thai food tasty. I would definitely recommend this activity to anyone who enjoys cooking and eating.

Turning up we got such a lovely friendly greeting, we were lucky enough to have Mina & Bo all to ourselves. Mina is so informative teaching about the different ingredients that make up thai food then assisting us through making 5 different recipes. The Cook book she gives you includes all the recipes that are available on the course. I... More
