We really enjoyed the class. Starting with the local market and gathering your necessary ingredients for the dishes that will be prepared. We got to walk around the market and ask questions about the different produce and spices being sold even if they were not part of the dishes we'd be cooking. The class itself was great, with clear instructions and demonstrations of how the dishes should be cooked. The instructor and her niece were very welcoming and their hospitality was amazing. We were easily able to converse in English and have conversations about Thai culture.

We cannot recommend this class and our wonderful teacher, Karn, enough. We had an excellent time, from pick-up at our residence to drop-off. Karn is warm, funny and a brilliant & knowledgeable teacher. She took all the time we needed at the market to learn about the ingredients and we had plenty of time to explore and ask questions. The cookery class itself was brilliant. We learned so much and enjoyed the process. We got printed recipes to take away and lots of leftover food for the evening. We would like to sincerely thank Karn, her nieces and Phu-Cat for an unforgettable experience!
