Time for Lime is a great cookery school, you firstly get an introduction to the ingredients used in Thai cookery (very useful)!!! And then it's down into the kitchen to get cooking. The teacher, Mai, is great - she has a great sense of humour, and keeps everyone on track at the same time.
I have to say this was the most flavoursome food I tasted in Thailand.. Probably slightly biased! But a fresh red curry paste makes one hell of a difference!!! I'm vegetarian and they catered brilliantly for me, substituting the meat/fish with tofu and roasted peppers. (Just let the team know of any dietary requirements when you book).
My boyfriend came as a 'lazy partner'. Arriving to eat with the rest of us. This means you get to make double the portion size, and the portions aren't stingy. You can help yourself to as much as you like really.
Mai demonstrated the cooking processes to us, and then we did it for ourselves. With some help from extra staff with some extra jobs - frying the spring rolls, cooking the meat etc. I didn't see this as a problem at all. The course is 5.5 hours long, and there is quite a lot to get through.
I'd really recommend this cookery class, it was the most expensive activity during my time in Thailand but definitely worth while. (1800 baht, plus 480 for a lazy partner) You get to take your apron home as a souvenir and a print out of the recipes too. : )
