We took a half day course at the Siam rice cookery school. Our format followed the same format at other posters i.e market tour, followed by cooking classes. Nancy our teacher for the day was the highlight - very funny lady and that brought the thai cooking class alive.

As others have said, do not eat breakfast as you will eat a lots of food before you leave!

Cooking course at Siam Rice was one of the nicest evenings in Thailand. Mink, our course teacher was a young Thai who just started to learn to cook himself, but his skills combined with friendliness and positive attitude were more than enough to perform an effective class. The dishes that we cooked were both simple and delicious with no single dish being a miss. Also the course participants were a great crowd which made the experience even better.

This is an excellent interactive day out. They collect you at your hotel in the morning and bring you to a local market and explain the produce and where it comes from.
They then bring you to Siam Rice where your fresh ingredients await you.

You are given a menu with a various selection of dishes. If your on a half day course you select and cook 4 dishes and if your on a full day course (highly recommend full day) you choose 7 dishes.

They then take you to your work station where you prepare and cook each dish. There is plenty of time between courses so it's very relaxed and great fun. One tip-
DO NOT HAVE BREAKFAST!!!!

Upon completing all your dishes you are given a certificate and a detailed cook book on the dishes that were discussed.

This is a fantastic day out and it's cooking for idiots so anyone can do it!

My wife and I booked the full day cooking course for one of our day activities during our honeymoon. We had a great time, starting with the market tour in the morning where they showed a lot of the spices and vegetables we would be working with during the day.

Later, we arrived at the school and begun cooking 7 courses throughout the day. Make sure to NOT eat breakfast, or have a very light one. Our chef was extremely helpful, had a great sense of humor, and was able to answer any questions we had.

For a day's worth of entertainment, fun, and a food binge, this is a great deal.

Siam Rice Cookery School was incredibly fun from beginning to end. The food we made was delicious and I would say some of the best food we had on the trip.
