We really enjoyed the trip to the market and cooking session with Poo and her staff. She's a lovely admirable lady, who has achieved a lot for her community and I think the fee for the half day experience is really worth it, as it's quite small for most Europeans but makes a big difference for the Thais.
The trip to the market can be a bit tough for the squeamish, but as we're used to this type of dead animal display we didn't mind, took some great photos and enjoyed the explanations about the fruit and different vegetables on offer. The cooking class which was on a Saturday comprise of some of our favourite Thai dishes, Mussaman curry, which was the best we've ever had, and also Mango sticky rice as dessert, again the best we have tried up to this day.
Overall I would greatly recommend to everyone who is looking to spend half a day away from sightseeing and do something different (and help out the local community in the process).
