I'm not really sure what I thought of this cooking school. What made it for me was the people who were also participating. Such a friendly bunch. We've done a fair few cooking classes in Asia and I can't say it was the best. We...More

I did the full day course in early October 2016 with 3 other people and it was great. The chef spoke good English and the trip to the market was really fun. Note: if you're not used to Laotian / Cambodian markets it can be...More

Did the all day course in a group of 6. The group itself made the course into not a bad day out as the instructor was very quiet and remained in the background as much as possible. There were no formalities; introduction / overview of...More

If I could, I would give zero stars because even the phrase "horrible" doesn't cover our "cooking class" experience. We were told we would be making two dishes (for which 160.000 kip is already waaay overpriced) but four dishes would be made in advance so...More
