      An exceptional culinary experience!

      An exceptional culinary experience! After we tasted local cuisine and loved it. We decided to take the family to a cooking class in a local kitchen. Chef Mong picked us up from the hotel for a guided and fascinating tour of a real local market. After choosing the dishes we wanted to cook, we arrived at the professional kitchen in his house. The hospitality was perfect! The positions were already arranged and his assistant was like a magician who arranged and organized everything quickly and efficiently. The explanations were clear and very enriching, about the culinary history of the Thai cuisine (with many Chinese influences), and about the cooking technologies - from cutting to cooking, seasoning and serving. The children were very excited to take an active part in a professional kitchen. After preparing 4 portions we sat down to eat and it was deliciouse!! Thank you very much Chef Mong and the Chef Assistant for an unforgettable experience on our family vacation.(couple with 4 children ages 20, 18, 10, 8)

      Highlight of our Koh Samui stay

      My family of four (2 adults, boys aged 13 and 10) did the morning cooking class with Mong. We first went to the market and whilst the other guide bought the ingredients for the dishes we had chosen, we were shown around the market, taking in the sights and smells. It was really interesting seeing the different vegetables, rices and noodles. Then we went the HQ for the cooking. It was such great fun and so easy to prepare and combine some lovely fresh ingredients to make Tom Yum Prawn soup, Beef salad, Massaman chicken curry (paste prepared in advance) and steamed fish in chilli sauce. Each individual could choose how much chilli to put in each dish for themselves. It was so well organised with plates, utensils and ingredients being brought and then taken away as and when required. We also got to look around the garden to see some of the ingredients growing. Then we got to eat it all - delicious!

      Anyone could do it!

      We had a fantastic morning at the cookery school. We started off in the market and got to see all sorts of different traditional Thai food. The school itself was set in a family home, a lovely setting! The actual cooking is made really simple, everyone does the same dish (you all select at the beginning) which means the instructions can be really simple and easy to follow, anyone could do it! After the cooking you get access to the website with all the recipes on, so you can carry on your new found skills back home! Make sure you book in advance, as groups are kept small (making the experience better!) so they get booked up quick. Over all a fantastic morning, thanks to all the team!

      Ko Samui Thai Cooking Class

      A must do for those interested in their food. We were picked up and dropped back at the hotel. We went to the local market, which is a feast of produce, and very informative. The cooking was well structured and I learnt a few new skills. We cooked 4 courses, which we got to eat at the end. The course was for 4 people, so you get individual attention. If you consider the fact that the cost includes your evening meal this is very good value for money.
