Absolutely amazing day. Going to the markets first was a great experience, then we were fortunate the cooking class also had all my favourites. Karn was an exceptional teacher, so funny and so educational. We learnt about not only the dishes, but the ingredients and how to use them properly. I have to say the Pad Thai, Tom Yum Goong, and Green Curry we had/made here were the best dishes we've had in Thailand so far. When I'm back I'll definitely book another lesson to learn more dishes! Can't recommend this cooking class enough.

I had a really interesting morning joining the cooking class. After being picked up from the hotel we drove to the local market to pick the ingredients for the meals we were going to prepare. As I was the only participant that morning, I was extremely happy that the class wasn't postponed or even cancelled. The atmosphere was very relaxing and the recipes and the set up of how the preparations would be done were well organized. I would recommend this class to anyone interested in learning a few basics of thai cooking in a very comfortable setting. I had a great time with the owner who is very knowledgeable and personable.

About 20 min drive from karon. Very nice staff that we accompanied when they shopped ingredients at the market. Then you sat down most of the cooking around a large table, which was a big plus. Went out at the end when everything was going to be woken and then it was hot but it was such a short while so it was ok. You got recipes for the dishes you cooked. Obs. On Sundays, it is the group that chooses what to cook, not each participant individually.
