We had a wonderfully relaxed day with the lovely Pai. The market visit is essential to appreciate the freshness of the ingredients and to learn about the various herbs and spices. We loved the fact that Pai personalised the day for us (I am a vegetarian and our daughter doesn't like spicy food). After the heat of the market Pai's... More

I love doing cooking classes when I travel and this was the best yet! Pai is the most welcoming and kind host. Picking us up at our hotel, she brought us to the market to buy our ingredients. She also bought us complimentary welcoming drinks and Thai sweets to take home. She walked us through the market describing all the... More

My husband and I had the best time with Pai completing her cooking class. Firstly communication with her via email was quick and easy, she always responded straight away and happy to answer any further questions. Pai picked us up from our apartment and took us to the local market to get all the fresh produce. This was great, she... More

Spent a great morning with Pai visiting the market and cooking up a storm in the kitchen. Visit to the market was great and Pai was happy sharing her local knowledge and info on all the food . Don't think you would normally see this market as a tourist on your own . Cooked three dishes plus a bonus, all... More

This is one of my favorite activities that I did while staying on Koh Samui. Pai was so sweet, and an excellent teacher. She walked us through each step and gave us lots of useful tips like how to make more such (more water, not oil!) and how to make your carrot slices look pretty. She was always patient and... More

Everything we could have asked for in a cooking class and more. This is a must do for anyone interest in learning more about Thai cooking and a truly unique local experience. Pai was kind enough to pick us up from the hotel and take us for a trip to the local market. A hidden gem very few tourist would... More
