The dishes themselves were absolutely delicious: spicy beef salad,... More

We took a 30 minute long boat from Phuket to Koh Yao Noi. The scenery was stunning. We arrived at the site of Mina's classes, which was a charming wooden home overlooking her garden, lush grounds and rice paddies. Mina is warm and friendly, and made us feel welcome from the moment we walked in. For English speakers, her English... More

A delightful afternoon in an authentic home kitchen. Mina introduced us to the traditional Thai food and cooking methods. We chopped, stirred, smelled, and tasted an array of herbs, spices and vegetables. Culminating in a delicious meal. Thoroughly recommend this experience.

We learnt a lot about the spices and herbs used in Thai cooking and my teenage children really enjoyed the day at her house. Well worth doing.

She is very interested in life and simply loves her cooking. Her enthusiasm rubs off on you as you dive into the incredible ingredients she has taken from her... More

It is the wet season here, and what better way to spend a rainy afternoon! A fun and interesting lesson in Thai cooking; we got to pick which meals we would like to learn how to do. First, we learnt about the ingredients. I also learnt about the difference between coconut milk and coconut cream! We then did the prep... More
