Thai food is so easy to cook when you have VJ showing you the way! The reviews barely did the Phuket Thai Cooking Class justice - it was fun to learn how to make great Thai food, and we made so much that we barely had room for dinner! We made a curry powder from scratch and then turned it... More

The preparation was the right level of work to be fun: eg. making curry paste by hand, but also providing ingredients pre-measured / peeled... More

My wife and I had so much fun checking out the market and cooking with VJ. Requested to have no seafood and she was happy to switch it out for chicken.

The secret of the Thai food is in the quality of the ingredients and passion for treating them right... We spend the morning with VJ, who revelled this secret and showed us in the most pleasant way how to prepare delicious Thai dishes. I was really amazed with the taste of my own creations! I strongly recommend the option which... More
