About
Cook like a local and eat like a local, with the knowledgeable and charismatic Mon. Classes are small, maximum 6 students, and together you design your favorite menu. Cooking with Mon is for everyone, young and old and even people who are not into cooking rate Cooking with Mon as one of the highlights of their holiday. You are not just cooking, you are spending a wonderful day with friends eating and having fun and without even noticing, you also learn a lot. Class is also very suitable for vegetarian, vegans and older children (from +/- 8 years). Classes cost 1500 baht per person and you will be cooking everything from scratch. Mon will introduce you to all the herbs, spices and Thai flavours. He doesn't just introduce you to a recipe but helps you develop 'a feeling' for Thai food. You will prepare three of your own favourite dishes, the way you like it (but of course Mon will always try to push you to add more chillies...) and finish the day with an additional delicious Thai dessert. We start the day at 11 am and cook until we are done, between 3-5 pm, depends on the dishes. At the end of the class you will receive a pdf file with all the recipes Mon has ever taught, so you can continue to experiment with Thai food back home. We are located in a little fisherman village south of the pier in Old Town. You will have a real authentic local experience surrounded by playing children, chicken and fishermen.

Authentic and fun Thai cooking class in your home
Jan. 2021
The online cooking lesson was amazing, Mon’ s energy and passion for his culture and food is infectious and brings Thailand into your home kitchen. This is a must do experience. We stayed at Mon’s place (Wooda House) in 2018 and did a cooking lesson while we were there and this opportunity brought back all the memories of our trip and share it with our family. Our family are geographically distanced and were able to prepare a meal together in a fun event

Highlight of Koh Lanta
Aug. 2019
A group of 6 of us spent the day learning to cook with K. Mon in August of 2019. We were joined for the day by 2 more individuals and all were made to feel welcome and included. Mon is a wonderful host, funny and chatty, he inspired confidence in the whole group including those who would usually shy away from more adventurous cooking.

We cooked 4 meals over the course of the day, all were delicious and I have continued to use his cookbook to great effect since returning home (even if some of the ingredients are difficult to find in the UK).

The day was amongst one of my favourites from my entire trip to Thailand and I would thoroughly recommend a day under the tutorship of K. Mon for everyone, regardless of your culinary ability.

A must do when you're in Koh Lanta!

Mon is an amazing host, really extroverted and welcoming. Hence the atmosphere during the cooking class was great from the first minute on! The dishes are tasty and you also have options if you don't eat fish, meat or even do not like a dish at all. You even get a pdf file with all the recipes to cook when you're back home!

This couldn’t have been a better experience under any other circumstances. The food was sublime! Mon (the instructor) is hilarious and a wonderful teacher. If Covid-19 doesn’t end the world, I highly suggest this be a day on your itinerary!

excellent teacher and excellent fun
Mar. 2020
Did my cooking course with Mon yesterday and learnt al lot, had so much fun and eat some great food. Mon is a great teacher, full of stories and insights, and a great sense of humour. He helps you to understand the basics of Thai cooking so you are empowered to go away and cook it for yourself. this is not just a 'follow the recipe' type of course but real learning from the basics up about ingredients and cooking techniques. best cooking course i have ever done and unlike a lot of others i really feel this one has enabled me to go away and cook better and more confidently on my own
thanks Mon

Fantastic cooking class, highly recommend!!
Feb. 2020
We took a cooking class with Mon a few weeks ago during our stay in Koh Lanta, and we had such an amazing time! Mon is super friendly and easy going, we felt super comfortable from the moment we arrived. I loved the set up of the class- not too large and everyone is able to prepare each dish themselves and adjust seasonings etc to their liking. I loved also that after making each dish we went around to taste each others' dishes so we could see how others had prepared their dishes. Mon was super informative, teaching us about each ingredient and how each played a role in creating the balanced dish at the end. He gave great pointers and helpful tips while we cooked. He also took pictures for everyone and posted on his website after which was great.

I loved that after our class we were provided with the recipes not only for the dishes we made during our class, but also for all of the dishes that are made at other classes so we can try cooking other dishes at home. We actually already cooked a few dishes since we've been home for some friends and they turned out great!

We had such a great time at this class, it was a great relaxed day of cooking, eating, and learning about thai food. I loved that the class was outdoors, the area is covered and there were fans to keep us cool. There was also plenty of cold water to drink for free, and cold beers for purchase! We had a great experience and were so glad we did the cooking class with Mon, highly recommend!!

Not to be missed
Mar. 2020 • Family
Just had the best day with my three teenage boys at Mon’s. All of us loved it. Mon makes the whole experience fun and the food we made was better than the same dishes previously ordered in restaurants. I would absolutely recommend spending a day cooking with Mon part of your trip.
