We had such a lovely and relaxed day preparing, cooking and eating all day. Ying was amazing instructing us through 4... More

Personalised, authentic, warm, tasteful experience !! Ying and her family will ensure you have a great time and some really great food. Have a very light breakfast is my advice. You get to choose what you cook, Ying is there at every step, everything is well organised. You get to do your own coconut milk, how cool is that !!... More

We had an excellent day together with Ying and her family cooking delicious Thai dishes at their home. Everything is super well organized and the program is interesting. You get picked up, and dropped off, to your hotel, and you start the day at a local marketplace picking up the needed ingredients for your chosen dishes. Very insightful and interesting!... More

When we booked our trip to Thailand, my partner told me he wanted to do a cooking class whilst we were there. This is surprising because he is a terrible cook, although after a little research I found Ying. From my very first e-mail enquiry, she was so helpful and we were really looking forward to our day with her.... More

As you can imagine as per the title, I am not the best cook on the planet. Ying's cooking class was one of the highlights of our trip and I would just like to thank Ying and her family for making me and my girlfriend feel a little more confident when it comes to actually cooking some edible food.

We wanted to learn about thai cooking and immediately chose this class because of it's feedback. And it was not a mistake. Ying is a funny and really sweet women.

This is sincerely a unique and incredible experience. Sure, you learn some incredible Thai recipes but the history and insight into true local culture are what give this class a depth beyond what you've likely experienced before (and may never again). If you're lucky enough to be one of the 4 people a day who gets in take it immediately.... More

This cooking course was so well organised from start to finish. We were able to chose the courses using the freshest ingredients and then enjoy what we cooked. Met some like minded people and really enjoyed the whole experience. Just one note, I have limited mobility and Ying was very helpful and responded to all concerns enabling me to take... More
