We had a lot of fun in this class. First of all, the market tour is great, with a real discovery of local products, and the way to use them.. The cook is real fun and we had a lovely time cooking and discovering the secrets of this thai cuisine... Its a bit long, but we had the chance of a lovely sunset while enjoying our work... Great activity !

Altho it was quite expensive, I enjoyed it. Took part in the Market Course which lasted from 4:30 till 9:30 pm. Well, there was nothing going on until 5 o'clock. They experienced several problems picking up all participants.

At the market, I somehow expected a little bit more, probably I'd appreciate more suggestions and hints on not only what is what but also how to make out good pieces from worse ones.
What was very nice and thoughtful, Phum got us some goodies to try - fried sweet potato and coconut ice cream.

Once we got back to the restaurant (at 6 pm), it always took some time for the staff to prepare the ingredients etc. which is ok. Preparing the food was fun and I was glad Phum sticked to the menu mentioned in the flyer because that was why I chose to enroll in the course that day. It was lovely to eat the food you prepared yourself, the more the meals I really love. However, the breaks between the individual meals were too long, and as it was already mentioned in a reference here before, it prolonged the course (might have ended around 8 or 8:30 pm, have the breaks been shorter, I think).

As I enjoyed the individual meals, I couldn't eat anymore after the third out of four meals - I just ate too much. Happily enough, they allowed me to take the fourth meal with me back home.
Normally, you eat just one of the meals for lunch and another one for dinner, now we had four meals at once.

At the end of the course we got a certificate. Phum was very nice.

We did the afternoon course, with another couple. Teacher was entertaining and informative. Sometimes his English was a bit broken, but we manage to understand everything. The recipe we learned of chicken sate will make us really popular within our friends back home!! :P

Our teacher, Phum (?!) was lively and cooking the food was very fun; lots of ingredients and you all did your own (but the same meals) - perfect for our groups of 3 couples

Only downside was the length of time between meals that dragged the evening on

I did the lunch-time class and was by myself as no one else had booked. Apart from introductions there was barely any interest on the chef's behalf. We spent only about a third of the time cooking and the rest of the time I sat alone at a table eating what had been cooked. There was very little information given on the ingredients used (I was just told to cut and into how many pieces). The sauces and pastes were all from a bottle. Judging from other reviews the evening class is much more interactive. I hoped to learn something and really didn't (at a morbidly overpriced rate)!
