We had a fantastic time. Firstly from trying to choose from the 160+ dishes to make. We were picked up from our hotel in a motorcycle tuk tuk which began the adventure, typical thailand travel. We went through the local fruit and vege market with our guide and chef who showed us all the different fruit, veges and herbs available. Were learnt there are more herbs than just thai basil , chilli and lemongrass. We then headed back to the cookery school again by tuk tuk where the real fun began. There were two couples this day so we were split into two groups, each with our own chef. We then all cooked our meals from scratch. We were shown the ingredients and then had to make our own pastes. The chef we had was very knowledgeable and friendly and whilst cooking our three chosen dishes even gave us tips and advice when making others. After we finished cooking we sat at the big table and ate our dishes. We shared our dishes amongst us as we made different dishes so it was great to try many different flavours. The staff were absolutely fantastic. From the driver who picked us up, to our chef, and even the staff who were assisting the chef and cleaning up after us. This is a delightful trip and can say very worthwhile. The owner of the school even came in at the end to say thankyou and provided us with some lovely tea.

A fantastic half day. Everyone was so patient with us especially when my husband knocked a bottle of oil onto the floor! and we came away with fantastic memories and knowledge. Oil was fantastic and so was the chef who helped my sister. Highly recommended!

Thanks to Stephanie, Jing and Phom for giving me and my girlfriend a fantastic cooking class. Stephanie was very patient and taught us step to step to cook the green curry chicken, steamed pork with blue crab and the Thai fried rice. You don’t need to worry about the result as you follow the steps!

This was a last minute decision to take the cooking class...1st one ever actually....and we my husband and I are SO GLAD we did, it was extraordinary!!! Tour of the market was perfectly timed, not too long, not too short, we learned a lot about the produce and the names of everything...very interesting. Then it was a very short walk not even 5 minutes to the cooking 'school'...a very nicely equipped house with lots of space to cook and very well organized with utensils, bowls, etc...they really thought of everything, it was very well prepared. You pre-choose 3 things to make and then make them accompanied by one of three chefs who are very experienced in Thai cuisine. We can't say enough about how nice this class was, we would definitely take it again....next time we return to Koh Samui. Highly recommend this class...TAKE IT!!!

This is by far the most enjoyable and memorable experience we had for this 1 week holiday in Samui. We happened to be the only couple due to low season and had a very personal experience with Stephanie, Jing and Chef Phom. Our day started with Stephanie and Jing bringing us around the local market and buying fresh produce for our cooking. All the 3 dishes that we picked were freshly prepared and cooked in Stephanie's beautiful home. The way they conducted the cooking class from the gentile inclusion of us, to delegating tasks, teaching cooking skills and imparting knowledge was relaxed and entertaining. Finally the 3 dishes that we cooked was just mind blowing and lip smacking!! Really our most delicious Thai cuisine for this holiday. Strongly recommend this activity if you are looking for something different and personal!

Stephanie and her team were amazing! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cooking class. Very clean and air conditioned and you even get a comprehensive tour of the markets before you cook. Soo much food, you almost needed to roll us out at the end.

Had a great afternoon with Stephanie and fellow chefs, was lucky enough to have a private class just me and my partner that day and had the chance to make the 3 dishes we requested previously via email and a banana ice-cream, all which were amazing, and will certainly recreate now back at home. We had a taxi organised for our pick up and drop-off at the hotel and had the fantastic experience of seeing the local market and trying different fruits and curries whilst guided by Stephanie. Kitchen was beautifully clean, organised, stocked and Happy! I fully recommend this experience, we learnt and laughed a lot.

My husband and I booked this cooking class with Stephanie and her lovely chefs. It was really great value for money, the trip to the market was very educational and interesting. The selection of meals to cook was varied and interesting. We were collected from our hotel and returned at the end. I would highly recommend this as something to put on the top of your 'to do' list when travelling to Thailand. It was exceptional! Thank you.

This was super cool. Stephanie was trained as a chef in France, but moved to Thailand and her passion for Thai cooking is eminent. She has excellent first world facilities and provides a relaxed yet very professional service. Highly recommended.

This cooking class was fantastic. My fiance and I really enjoyed the experience. Stephanie was very informative about the food when walking round the market, answering all the questions we had. The cooking part of the class was excellent too it was held in a villa a very short walk from the market. Stephanie was very helpful and relaxed here explaining all the ingredients and how they fit together. The three course meal we enjoyed was delicious at the end! Thank you very much to Stephanie and her team.

What a wonderful morning we had with Stephanie and her lovely ladies. The course was informative and fun. We were taught how to make the dishes of our choice Pad Thai, Massaman Curry and mango ice cream. All the ingredients were local and fresh. We were met at the local market and bought our ingredients then driven to the cookery school to prepare the food. The whole experience was very well organised from start to finish. We are looking forward to trying the recipes when we get home. Thank you ladies!

Stephanie, our guide, was attentive and knowledgeable of local customs and food culture. The tour was small, which allowed for good fun in a group and for a fun chance to meet others without it disrupting the flow of class or making it too big for good engagement with others. Food was superb, too!

My partner and I had an amazing time at this class. The driver picked us up at The Conrad, which was all the way across the Island. When we arrived at the market Stephanie met us there. Stephanie is AMAZING. She is so knowledegable about all the food and her demeanor is so relaxing you feel put to ease immediately. After we picked out three course meal out of all fresh foods, we were driven to her cooking school. The cooking school was also amazingly relaxing. She had a Thai Helper who was also great and a big help in preparing the food. We learned a a tremendous amount about food the cooking and the culture. We all ate together and it was very nice to sit a table in a home with new friends on a vacation where we don't know anyone or speak the language. Stephanie being born in France spoke English very well which was also a nice change. We were driven back to our resort. I HIGHLY suggest everyone take this class.

AMAZING one of the best cooking classes we have ever attended. Small group and we were allowed to make our own choices. From the market tour to the hands-on cooking, it was fantastic. If you love to cook this is the tour to go on. Wish we had booked 2 days as the chef Stefanie had so many menus to pick from.

What a wonderful experience. Oane and Stephanie were very warm and welcoming. Being shown around the local market before hand was very insightful. Stephanie was happy to answer any questions and tailor the whole cooking experience to suit our personal preferences for recipes and level of skills. She had an amazing range of ingredients for us to try and to experiment with. We learnt a lot about those ingredients, different cooking methods, as well as the Thai culture associated with food. Being picked up at my hotel and being dropped off afterwards, and all the good food, was such good value! I am taking away some very good memories from this cooking experience, and I know that Stephanie is only an email away should I need any cooking tips or recipes.
