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.

I had a wonderful day cooking some delicious Thai food. Film was an excellent teacher and really taught us about ingredients and traditional cooking techniques. I did the class with my daughter (8) who they allowed to join me at a cooking station for no extra charge. They were very kind and patient with her. We made curry paste from scratch with a mortar and pestle. We even made our own coconut milk by kneading a bag of fresh grated coconut into warm water. What an experience!! They send each person home with a cookbook so even if you didn't make every meal , you can try it at home. I would hightly recommend this place.

This is the second Thai cooking class we’ve been to. It was great. It was a small group with plenty of hands-on cooking. The instructor was there all the time. She was informative, knowledgeable and was always happy to answer questions. Her English was also very good.

We had so much fun and learned so much... and ate. Highly recommended! We got picked up at our hotel and visited the local market. Our instructor Film explained us a lot about the different vegetables and ingredients. I didn’t now there were so many kinds of eggplant... We could
choose 6 courses (soup, appetizer, curry, stir fried, noodles, dessert) and had 3 options for each category. Everything was so good organized. The kitchen was really good equipped and we laughed so much with Film. Unfortunately we were not able to finish all the plates but it was soooo delicious. With the cook book that you will get in the end you can cook everything at home :)

A fantastic evening . We cooked with wan ( the last incharge for the day ) was very relaxing and easy to learn and understand what was going on . for 1000 baht about 26€ this is well worth it ( even under priced if I am honest for what you receive ) . You make 7 dishes and receive a cooking book with all the dishes on selection for the day . Had a beautiful evening out
