At Basil Cookery School, you get to do all the cooking. Don’t worry, even if you have never done a cooking class before, we make Thai cooking easy.Unlike other cookery schools that held 10-20 people per one class we limit our class to only 1-6 people so you can get the plenty of time learning with us. Ask any question you want while we're enjoy cooking together. As we take you step by step through the recipes, our class will give you confidence and we guarantee that you will be able to eat your very first delicious Thai dish. We pride ourselves on quality, from the freshest ingredients, high quality cooking utensils, clean and clear kitchens, to our customer service.

This was by far one of my favourite experiences in Thailand. My friends and I actually booked the day before we went and they were able to accomodate us. We were picked up at our airbnb, taken to a market and taught about the ingredients we were going to use later. We then got cards with six categories and different... More

Three friends and I had Basil recommended to us, and while we considered other companies I'm so glad we chose to follow the recommendation. The class did not disappoint and we can't thank our instructor Pim enough for the fun evening! Well worth the money, we selected and made 6 dishes, lasting about 5 hours. The pick up and drop...

We did a morning class and were joined with 1 other couple. Our teacher Pim picked us on time and first we went to a market for a look at Thai ingredients. The class was at a good pace with a 1/2 hour break in the middle. We had a great time and would highly recommend the school.

Our family of 8 adults decided to take the class for a different Thai experience. Apple picked us up at our hotel and took us to a local market to shop for our cooking experience as well as educate us on the fresh cooking ingredients. The kitchen set up was perfect for cooking and learning. Everyone got to choose their... More

Our cooking class today was great! Pim was our teacher, and she was really funny, easy going, and knowledgeable. My friend and I were in a group of 6. We went to the market first to get supplies and Pim showed us all of the Thai ingredients most commonly used. The food we made was delicious and we even got... More

It was a great cooking class, Pim and her team were super friendly and so helpful! The market visit was very informational and nice to learn about new Thai ingredients that we didn't know about before. Food was delicious and so much fun to cook and only 4 people in our class which was really good! Overall a great experience... More

The school picked us up from our hotel and took us to the market and explained all the spices and veggies we would be cooking with. Then we had 10 minutes to quickly check out the market for ourselves. We then had 3 hours of easy cooking making a selection of top quality eats.
