OM gracious, where do I begin? First of all I want to thank my lucky stars I stumbled upon this school. With a myriad of other schools from which to choose, including one that sounds very similar, I don’t know why I chose this one. It was possibly an intuitive sense having read their website, it would be a good fit for me. I was planning to enroll in a 5 full day course so I wanted it to be right. From the moment I began an email dialogue with Pom, I was immediately impressed with her clear, open communication and could sense her warm, relaxed professionalism. The school is a half hour drive from the old city and I was picked up each morning promptly at 8:30 and driven back later in the afternoon. On our way to the school each morning a stop at a fabulous farmer's food market was an instructive beginning to each incredible day.
The school’s location was the icing on the cake, despite the half hour drive. It was spacious, open, airy, spotlessly clean & in a country side neighborhood backing onto a large green farmer’s field with bird song in the air. Everything about the school was so well organized & so well appointed and at the same time you immediately felt totally “at home” only better. The small number of attending students certainly helped which in turn resulted in quality attention & guidance when required. Pom was a consummate talented English speaking instructor and was assisted by her delightful sister Tak. This dynamic duo provided the best Thai cooking course I could have ever imagined or wanted. I was so impressed with their qualities that I dragged my totally undomestic husband (he can barely boil water) to a dinner class and he had such a terrific time that he booked an additional full day the following week. Since we have returned to Canada we have “together” made a red curry paste from scratch, a PadThai, a papaya salad, & Tom Yum soup. This, with a husband who has never in the past approached the vicinity of a kitchen. We are having such fun. Oh and thats the other thing to mention. Pom & Tak were fun. Great sparkle, warmth & humor.
