A friend and I chose Sonja's cooking class as I have gluten allergy and my friend is a fussy eater and Sonja's seemed to provide alot of choice and an extra dish for a similar price. Sonja was kind enough to advise approximate cost for travel from our location via various methods (ie song tae, taxi & moto) so we didn't get ripped off - and this was helpful when negotiating a price with the taxi driver.
Upon arrival, Sonja welcomed us with a down to earth attitude and we felt comfortable and at home straight away, like visiting an old friend. Sonja went off to the market and left us with the most lovely, gentle, helpful, humourous thai man, a thai chef from a local restaurant who spoke english well enough to explain things while still making it feel very authentic. Anan gave us his email address for when we returned home, just incase we needed help with our thai cooking - he was truly a sweet, helpful man and new exactly what he was doing in the kitchen. The food was beautiful and Anan made it seem so easy - we were amazed at how easily we could make our favourite thai dishes. It was great to feel relaxed and have time to pose for pictures :) Upon leaving, we were given a complimentary lift of the back of Sonja and Anan's moto's and Sonja was great with my friend who was in a skirt (hadn't planned to go on a moto and this was her first time so she was a little scared - it was a good small dose of moto action for her lol). The next day was the Songkran New Year festival and we are glad we took Sonja's advice to extend our trip by a day so as not to miss it, but also her insider tips on how the day would go and what to expect (and what to wear so as not to ruin good clothes). Funnily enough we saw Sonja accross the hugely crowded street and she made her way accross the road just to give us a big hug and say hi and that she was glad we stayed to see the festival - after a friendly water pistol squirt (if that sounds strange, goodle sonkran lol) to say hello! and obviously travelling in a foreign country, I was one of those paranoid about what i ate - not wanting to lose any time hugging a toilet bowl in a bathroom during our short stay - but we ate at sonja's without any issues that night/the next day.
