This is an amazing experience! Learning about all the types of foods and spices. Tour starts at the market for an overview of all ingredients you will use. You can then make 7 dishes! Delicious! Would definitely do this again. Our instructor was great!

Hi November is high season so you should make a reservation a few week before if possible. We do have a class on Loy Krathong Festival no worries. Anymore information please do not hesitate to contact us.
