I highly recommend this course, really professional, informal and yet so much fun. I chose the morning class with the market visit, which was a fantastic experience. I learnt so much about traditional Thai ingredients, how to choose products in the market and VJ's explanations were really useful. During the course we prepared green curry from scratch (the curry paste... More

I love Thai food and the opportunity to see the process from market to table was truly perfect. Book the morning class with VJ, so you get to go to the market and experience it fully. This is a fun and delicious way to spend a few hours in Phuket. A Must Do, so do not miss it!

My husband and I had a great time cooking with VJ. She was so informative and made things fun and easy! We couldn't believe that we made our own green curry and that it tasted so good. It was so great to go to the market and look at the ingredients. I now have a better idea of what I... More

Thank you for the amazing class VJ. Had an amazing time learning about the authentic Thai flavours and making red curry paste from scratch. I was very graciously accommodated when I booked via email as bookings fill up fast. Picked up on time. VJ was extremely patient and helpful and even provided me with halaal chicken as per my request.... More

My husband and I really enjoyed the cooking class from VJ. She speaks very good English and was very informative during the market tour. We learned a lot about the food culture. Definitely a highlight of my trip to Thailand and I feel comfortable/prepared to make a dish back home.

VJ is a great teacher. Our session started with an informative trip to the markets to buy fresh ingredients and finished after I had learned to cook three very tasty dishes.

VJ, (family origins from India) is third (or fourth?) generation Thai and has a fantastic knowledge of the local area and the produce available. We (my partner and I) started the day with a tour of the local markets with VJ which included learning about the different proteins, vegetables, herbs, spices and chillies used in Thai cooking... and watching and...

I took a two hour class with my sister. The class was fun, interactive and very informative. VJ showed us how to make Thai Green Chicken Curry plus Pineapple Fried Rice & Chicken with Thai Basil. 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
