Owner description: At Basil Cookery School, you get to do all the cooking. Don’t worry, even if you have never done a cooking class before, we make Thai cooking easy.Unlike other cookery schools that held 10-20 people per one class we limit our class to only 1-6 people so you can get the plenty of time learning with us. Ask any question you want while we're enjoy cooking together. As we take you step by step through the recipes, our class will give you confidence and we guarantee that you will be able to eat your very first delicious Thai dish. We pride ourselves on quality, from the freshest ingredients, high quality cooking utensils, clean and clear kitchens, to our customer service.

This was one of my favorite days on my trip to Thailand. Benz was incredibly knowledgeable about Thai ingredients and cooking. I learned so much. She made cooking seem so easy-- a testament to her ability as a teacher. The food tasted delicious. They give you the cookbook to take home with you and I for sure will be hosting Thai dinner parties in the future.

This was one of the highlights of our trip - from the morning markets, to the instruction to the food, all was first class. We have made many of the recipes we covered in the class at home. Definitely recommended!

I took an evening class with Benz and absolutely loved it! We were able to choose 6 different dishes and everything could be made vegetarian style. She took us to the market and explained (in perfect English) what each ingredient was and how to buy it in our home countries. Everything we made was absolutely delicious and she was so patient with everyone explaining how to make each dish well. I also loved the class because of how small it was so she gives each person a lot of attention. Such a fantastic class!!!

Based on family recommendations we selected this cooking school. We chose the evening class where you cook several dishes of your choice from a menu. Pickup from the hotel was prompt followed by a trip to the local market to get the ingredients for your meal. Class size was only 6 which was great. Benz our coach had a great personality and was knowledgable. Go hungry as you will be eating lots of good food. At the end you get a cookbook for all the dishes. We found some dishes a bit on the sweet side so now we know to cut back on the sugar when we will cook them at home. Enjoy.

Just wanted to thank you for sharing with us your knowledge in such a friendly and honest way. Everything we used was of good quality and the initial
Visit to market the perfect way to start our evening. Definitely would recommend it!
