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.

We had the best day cooking with Mon! It was so interesting to learn about Thai ingredients and see all the ingredients grown in their own garden! It was like cooking with friends! Mon was so relaxed and funny! We cooked everything from scratch and the result was amazing! If you stay in Lanta I highly recommend you to spend a day cooking with Mon!

Must do when in Koh Lanta! Incredible experience delivered by the vibrant and creative chef Mon. Either choose your own dishes or have the best of the best picked for you by Mon himself. Expect laughter and dancing, a comprehensive tour of the grounds in search of ingredients and a crash course in knowledge of Thai cooking.

Our dishes for the day were Pad Nam Prik Pow, Thai Red Curry, Steamed Thai dumplings and the classic Mango Sticky Rice (soaked in Pea Flowers for the blue dye).

Would recommend to everyone!

We had such a lovely day cooking with Mon! His energy was contagious and we all spent the day laughing, dancing, singing, and eating incredible food we made ourselves! His recipes are incredible, I’m not normally a fan of Thai food, but his recipes and the ease of cooking won me over and I will now happily make them at home!

If you do one thing in Koh Lanta, this is it!!! We made 5 dishes of amazing thai food. Mon is the kindest and funnest person to be around. He was so helpful with the cooking and brought the energy!! We have visited Thailand for a month and a half and this was our favourite day we had. It is 10000% worth the money and the food we made was fresh and delicious. We were offered water and watermelon upon arrival. Thank you so much Mon :)

We had such a wonderful day Cooking with Mon! The experience was fun, informative and, most importantly, DELICOUS!

During the class we made four dishes (pad kra pao, tom yum soup, panang curry and mango sticky rice) though the exact menu changes based on the day. I really appreciated being able to make each dish vegetarian with either tofu or vegetables. It is also easy to customize the level of spice if you do not want your food to be spicy. The class is ideal for everyone regardless of food preferences, and I can not recommend it enough.

Mon is not anymore in the old town, but in Long Beach area, in a nice spot surrounded by nature. The class is outside, great for COVID time, and you cook surrounded by the bar on one side, the garden with all the herbs on the other one. Mon takes the time to talk to you, to know you, to understand what you know, what you like, what you think. I asked to change one of the dish of the menu the day before, and they did it with great flexibility and availability (it was possible because we were a very small group). We prepared 4 meals in 5 hours, taking time to chat, relax, eat and chill. The products were great, fresh and tasty, the tools always clean and the mood always positive. We prepared the curry paste from scratch, which was amazing, as well as the rest of the meals (you can't believe that you prepared such a great food). I was alone but the connection with the other participants was immediate, as the general mood was great. Highly suggested.

Far exceeded any expectations of a cooking class. I cook a lot at home and wanted to see Thai style to bring back home. Mon was knowledgeable, helpful and very generous with time and food. Go hungry! We went with a baby and we split the class for one person between us. The grounds are great for relaxing when the other was cooking. Would recommend to anyone.

This was one of the best cooking classes I've taken abroad. No frills. No pretentiousness. Just a garden, home grown ingredients, and a wok. You actually get to make three dishes from scratch, even the curry paste. Mon is patient, full of stories, and really really chill. I would highly recommend for singles, couples, families, anyone who is curious about Thai cooking.

Fun and delicious day for the whole family! Highly recommend it to anyone. We made everything from scratch and had a lovely time learning about Thai cooking from Mon. Mon has a great positive vibe that makes you happy. We even got to pick some of our ingredients from the garden.
