Where you get the deep knowledge of Thai Culinary Cooking!

Started 2006,...

Where you get the deep knowledge of Thai Culinary Cooking!

Started 2006, with the same main teacher, Aon. Outstanding skills,+40 years of Thai cooking experience.

 

We do 3 classes per day, 7 days per week; Morning, Afternoon and Evening, all different programs.

You as a part of the group choose what dishes to make, individually you choose type of meat; chicken, seafood, prawns, vegetarian and for some dishes beef.

Everything is done individually, from first cutting to spice level etc.

We also do Private classes and longer classes for professionals and amateurs, where you can learn practically every existing Thai dish from someone that know how to do it!

Veggies, Herbs and Spices from our own garden (mostly), Freshly squeezed coconut milk and curry paste made on the premises.

Everything done in our Classic big Thai Teak house, all designed for as a Cookery School in a quiet area of Prae Ae.

Two-way transport, welcome drink, cooking book, coffee, tea and water is included. Many other drinks for sale

Very Welcome to an experience above the rest!

Myself and my 2 friends, spent a great evening being taught by Aon. We learned how to prepare four courses, all with very different flavours, techniques and styles. Aon was very informative and patient with some of our less experienced cooks. All four dishes were incredible, we couldn't pick our favourite dish, we even had to take some home because... More

Visiting Lanta Thai Cookery school at the beginning of the low season, meaning it was just me and my partner in the class. We learnt to cook golden bags with sweet chilli sauce (from scratch), seafood with tamarind sauce, massaman curry and mango sticky rice. Everything was very clear, well presented and organised, and clean. Our teacher spoke good english... More

We booked the day before, and were picked up for free at my resort. We had the chance to be alone, only me and my 9Yo daughter. The teacher had an understandable English, not the greatest but enough to do the job properly. She was sympathetic and always willing to answer any questions. After going through the main Thai spices... More

Visited with my 7 year old daughter. Really enjoyed the lunch time class. Called up and booked by phone, very simple, could pay on the day (cash only). Picked up from our hotel at no extra cost (Klong Dao beach area). Very professional, helpful teacher. Gave plenty of detail on thai cookery and we choose 4 dishes by a vote... More

This was an excellent experience! We were a group of 6 people and we chose 4 dishes to prepare. We learnt a lot and will definitely try to recreate these at home - especially papaya salad, Golden Bags and tamarind curry from scratch! Pimm was our amazing instructor. She is also the owner of the cooking school, together with her... More

My girlfriend and I booked the evening course and it was fantastic. We picked four dishes from the ones available to cook but we got a recipe book with all the dishes in which was a nice touch. As a group we choose spring rolls, chicken satay, masaman curry and chicken sweet & sour. Prim explained everything very clearly going... More

My boyfriend and I did a cooking class with Prim which cost us 1700 baht each. It was well worth the money! Prim was absolutely fantastic. She explained everything really clearly. The food tasted amazing - the best chicken satay, spring rolls and masaman curry we've had.. even if we do say so ourselves. We were welcomed with a local... More

Did the lunch menu but did not enjoy as much as anticipated. The whole process felt rushed. The times advertised were 10am to 2pm. We were on our way back at 1:30pm already. I was hoping for it to be a bit more relaxed, but it was all about getting the recipes done, consume it and moving on. Some of... More

We had the pleasure of joining the Lanta Thai cookery school during our holiday in Thailand. They serve all fresh food and let you pick the level of curry and type of meat/seafood. As a group you have to agree on 4 dishes. The staff will guide you in how to make perfect Thai food. Would love to return one... More
