Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I went for the half day course with my partner. Wan was a professional instructor and taught us how to carve vegetables into decorative pieces of art for food presentation. She is very passionate about her work and would patiently help the students one by one . As this was our first time at food carving, it was not easy but we enjoyed ourselves and were amazed by how simple carrots, cucumbers and tomatoes can look so fancy!!

One of the best and skill-full vegetable and fruit carver , Wan is very helpful and accommodating in assisting you the “ins and out” on how to carve, also the style and technique to create an amazing fruit/vegetable masterpiece as a garnish or an additional ingredients for your recipe/menu.

My wife and I attended the Siam Carving Academy for nine days, taking the beginning, intermediate, and advanced carving courses from Wan Hertz. Wan is truly a master carver and a very patient instructor. She started us out slowly, and as our skills increased, challenged us with increasingly intricate tasks that kept us riveted to our work. When each day of class was over, we were truly amazed at what we accomplished under her guiding hands.

Wan and her husband, Larry, are very personable, and we greatly enjoyed visiting with them each day. They taught us a lot about the Thai culture. Wan took us shopping at the Chatuchak Market one evening after class, and spent a whole Saturday taking us to the floating market. One lunch hour, Larry gave us a tour of the local street food vendors, pointing the dishes and drinks that were especially tasty.

Wan is also a very skilled chef. Each day she made lunches for us that rivaled the best restaurants in Bangkok.

The Siam Carving Academy is located a convenient five minute walk from the Sutthisan metro station. The facility is clean and comfortable.

We had a fulfilling and memorable experience. We recommend it to anyone interested in creative and challenging Thai fruit and vegetable carving.

I attended the 9 days intense course of Thai Master Carver Series Course for Thai Fruit & Vegetable and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to take a new challenge and enjoy the ride with the proffesional attitude and behavior of Mrs. Wan, she was definitely very polite and available throwout the duration of course and not only.
To don' t forget the help of Mr. Larry who was a great help for anything and even a personal guide for me in Bangkok 🤗😁.
I felt part of the family already and cant wait to travel again in Bangkok and visit them both, this time with more knowledge in the amazing art of Carving, thanks to them 🙏😁.
Many thanks and Regards,
Enrico, Italy 🇮🇹, Grazie.

I attended the 3-hours class with my mother-in-law. Wan, our teacher and master carver, is very friendly and approachable. She taught us how to carve flowers, baskets and leaves using tomatoes, carrots and cucumbers. We were each provided with a carving knife which we could bring home with us. The art of carving was definitely not easy but this class was a good and fun experience for us.

Had a great time with Wan. What a lovely teacher. I was very lucky to have her all to myself. I was able to learn a lot. The dinner was a lot of fun with Larry and the food was great.
I would recommend this class to anyone wanting to try fruit carving.

This class will set up apart from other chefs. All the tools and information you need to make exquisite decorations from vegetables (tomato, cucumber, radishes, pumpkin, etc) and fruit you will learn. The teacher is so patient and creative. She never stopped creating new designs and never got tired of me constantly needing a lot of instruction.
Even if you are a home cook this is a great fun way to spend the afternoon and learn a skill. If you are a professional chef this knowledge will set you apart from other chefs. A knife and lunch is included.
