You should take this cooking class! My husband and I had a free morning, so we signed up. My husband likes to try new food, but he doesn't ever cook, so I wasn't certain he would enjoy the class. He had a great time! There were two other couples in the class. The home is set up perfectly for us to prepare the food outside and dine outside. It is April, yet under the covering with ceiling fans we were not too hot. We each had choices of what to make for our four courses. After a tour of the market by Huot and a visit around the kitchen garden by Chanvatey we washed up and started cooking. (Please forgive me for making any mistake on the names.) Chanvatey was well prepared and gave good instructions. Everyone had room to work around the cook space, and everyone had plenty to do. You could make choices, like more sweet or less garlic, but mostly we all followed Chanvatey's directions. Hoat took photos as we worked, and sent them to us afterwards. The food was so delicious!

Hat and his team were incredible !! Food was AMAZING! Picked fresh herbs and mangos directly from the garden. Everyone was super friendly and took the time to explain every step of the process. We also were able to choose exactly what we cooked from the menu and were given the recipes afterward! Learned so much and had an amazing afternoon!
