You can often judge the quality of a service for how they cope when things go wrong. We had a great tour of the market to buy the ingredients and then went back to cook them. Just before we arrived the electricity was turned off on the street with no notice. This meant no cooking and no air con, and no idea when it would be back on. Unfazed, Beau and her hubby (an Ozzie) made everyone feel at home, providing cold drinks, cold towels and good company. About an hour later the electricity restored and off we set on the cooking.
Our group had a variety of abilities and everyone learned something. I had done a Thai course before that was also great fun, and I cooked more dishes, but this one was more informative and also gave me a sure fire way of cooking garlic and onions without burning the garlic! I also now understand about coconut cream and why fish sauce is used so much
You get an option of which menu to cook, and if I was to return to this part of the world I would do the course again and do the other menu.

First off as a foreigner you might find the wet market but understanding it is daunting. Beau escorts and informs as you walk the market. Big value plus. You then return to their home to cook carrying the freshest of produce, smile on the dial. House is timber, casual, beautiful, a treat. Everyone has a cooking station, and after copying the ingredients plate you are into it. Simple explanations, simple cook book, all adding to the experience of easy meals that were thought to be complicated. A great experience not to be missed. Our kids at 11 and 12 also got to cook and loved it, particularly their cooking certificate. Many thanks, good people.

We had the Thai Cooking Course experience this morning / afternoon (12 July 2014) and have only positive things to say, start to finish.

We started by meeting Beau (and a very nice family joining us for the morning) at the Hua Hin morning market. She was very engaging, happy to answer all manner of questions and made our market experience really enjoyable when it could have been overwhelming!

We then moved to Beau's house where the course began in earnest. Not only were the demonstrations helpful, informative and engaging but the ingredients were incredibly fresh and the end product delicious (even when we had a go at each dish).

We also got the chance to meet Beau's family who really added to the overall experience and ensured we were comfortable at all times. We appreciated the fact that everyone was so generous with their time and recommendations for other things to do in the area.

A brilliant experience which exceeded expectations and which we would thoroughly recommend to visitors of all ages.

We start with a local market tour at 0900. We bought all the ingredients for the dishes and Beau introduced everything at the market~!!

After that, we arrived the house for cooking course. It is very nice and very thai. The course included 3 dishes and 1 desert. We learn and cook them one by one. Beau told a lot of secret and hidden skills of thai cooking!!
The course finished around 1400 so that we still have time to visit couple places after the course.

It is a very enjoyable and valuable cooking course to cook with Beau and Brett. It is worth to spend a morning to join the course and cook for family when you back to home as a souvenir!!
