My husband and I loved the VJ's cooking class and the market tour. She did a wonderful job telling us about all the ingredients and walking us through the prep and cooking processes.

My vacation in Phuket is winding down now and I will go home with a few good memories, which includes partaking in this cooking class. VJ, our instructor, was very informative, patient and personable in explaining everything regards to the three dishes that we cooked. She was also very good in communicating before class, in regards to arranging pickup. If... More

On our recent visit to Phuket, we only had a few days. The tour we had planned was cancelled due to rain, so we began our search of something fun to do. So we decided to try a Thai cooking class! We called chef VJ and she had room for us in her afternoon class. On a side note, a... More

We booked this cooking class last minute before we arrived in Thailand. This class exceeded our expectations. The class size is small and VJ, the teacher, was very knowledgeable about Thai Culture. We recommend taking the class that gives you the market tour. VJ will walk you around the market and show you some insights into shopping at an open... More

VJ was so easy to communicate with from the moment we enquired about booking. Very accommodating and very knowledgeable. Made learning and cooking fun and easy. Plus it tasted so good when we had finished. Would recommend the classes to all interested in being able to make good easy Thai food.

I was there on a Sunday class with my husband, son and daughter in law. What an experience. We firstly went to the market where the bewildering ingredients were clearly explained by VJ our guide and chef for the day. Who knew that a fresher prawn should be more curled! The array of fruits were all pointed out and the... More

Authentic ingredients, detailed explanation, fun talking with teacher and classmates, great sense of accomplishments, aller-retour pick up service, etc. What can you expect more for a dreaming cooking class?

Phuket Thai Cooking Class with VJ was awesome. I am so glad we did it! My husband and I got picked up from our hotel by VJ and she took us all to the market. Wow! That part was cool enough - she told us all about how to choose the best ingredients, what to look for, and how to... More

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with VJ. We booked online, and received an email response within a few hours. We weren't sure if we could make it since my husband was feeling unwell that morning, but VJ rolled with it, and remained flexible when we later decided to follow through with the afternoon session. We are really... More
