Whether you like Thai food, enjoying learning new cooking techniques or just find yourself in Koh Samui, you have to visit this cooking school! It was one of our must amazing experiences we had during our entire visit to Thailand and very well worth it! You learn the basics of Thail cooking as well as several of the techniques they use to make these tasty dishes. The cooking school offers a variety of classes, so choosing one may be difficult, but the instructors are engaging and work hard to keep you interested. We wish we would've taken more of the classes.
We made three different dishes as well as making Thai red chili paste from scratch. It was so rewarding to take all of the ingredients and pound them together into this fantastic paste. All of the ingredients are fresh and partially prepared for you. You make one dish at a time and then taste them after each dish is done. At the end of the class you are taken upstairs where you can sit together and enjoy your creations! BEWARE - you will make a LOT of food! Unfortunately, our resort didn't provide a place we could reheat our dishes, so the only regret we have from this school is that we couldn't share the making of the dishes. (Each dish is approximately 2-3 servings and each person makes three different dishes! We could've eaten for a week!)
Allow at least three hours for the cooking school and go hungry! The school offers a small store with seasonings, cooking utensils and more. Each participate gets a small cookbook with the recipes and a DVD with an overview of the cooking instructions, which is a great momento to take home and remember your experience. The school is clean and well organized too, so don't worry that you'll be anywhere questionable. Definitely give this place a try! You'll be very happy that you did!
