Why Taking a Cooking Class in Koh Samui is a Must-Do
Swaying palm trees along with various hotels and resorts line the Samui coastline. However, Samui’s best kept secret is not it’s pristine beaches, but it’s delicious food. Learn how to make authentic Thai food, where we even offer vegan and organic cooking classes. In most of our classes we invite you to take a trip to the local market to pick out your ingredients, which you will use to cook with.

Chef Mong was super nice and great personality. And his English was actually pretty good. The market tour was a nice experience him showing us around and the different types of common ingredients on Thai Cooking was amazing. The actually cooking class was really good. We actually get to chop up ingredients and cook it on our own burner! And he helps us with presentation of plating. We also have the freedom to change or late our dish as we wish! It was really great!!!! Very worth the price :)

We spent time with the chef in the market first discovering the local ingredients, how to select them and what we need for the dishes we were about to cook.
Pick up and drop off from the hotel was included, we arrived then in typical Asian house with an amazing garden where we learn to cook in a very intimate atmosphere in the house of the chef, helped by his brother. I truly enjoyed this class and will recommend to anyone visiting Koh Samui !

"Fun and learnd something! :D"
It was really nice that we had to cut the ingredients first and put them on a plate. This way its easy to see and make a picture of what goes into the dish.
Mong is a energetic happy chef. It was easy and nice to listen to him. Price was not the cheapest but the stuff we were working with was nice. I am happy i did it!

Comprehensive tour, much was explained about Thai food.
We had to decide which four things to cook as a group (not individually).
Then we were shown, in a pleasant setting how to prepare and cook the four meals.
Enjoyed it very much.

"Interesting market visit and good basic dishes"
Interesting visit at the market with short description of many ingredients.
The whole group pick 4 meals to prepare.
Preparation - cleaning is very well done and supervised with a chef's helper, so we don't lose precious time to clean and change pots etc..
Very nice experience!

"One of a Kind Experience"
Our evening at Thai Experience was one of the highlights of our Samui trip. Lots of food and drink and the host Joe kept us entertained for 3.5 hours.
It was good to understand the story behind some of the Thai dishes and meet a lot of new people. But I think the best part was that it was interactive and you just did not sit and eat. Highly recommended. I would suggest to go at the beginning of your trip as they also give you local tips for Samui.

"Fun and informative."
My wife and I really enjoyed the whole experience, from being picked up from our hotel by our chef to his tour of local produce markets. We have taken several cooking classes in Chang Mai and this class was top notch. During the 3 hour class we learned how to prepare 4 dishes of our choice and then got to eat them. We highly recommend this class to anyone.

"Great educational class!"
We had such a great time and learned so much! Jul was amazing, she walked us through all the recipes and why they used certain ingredients. The food turned out great and is something we’ll be able to make on our own at home. I would highly recommend this to anyone, we had a blast!

"A must do in Thailand"
We had an amazing experience. I took my family for a quick trip here in Thailand. We arrived early and had some free time. Jul prepared a brilliant set up for us. Upon arrival she lead us to the backyard where her organic herb garden was located as well as her kitchen. Jul and her co-chef were very friendly and knowledgeable and my mother was really fond of her. The whole family enjoyed our time at Thai Organic Cooking course so much, we are all still excitedly talking about the good taste of the food we made and can not believe how good all the dishes looked as well.The class would be great for anyone who wants to cook delicious Thai food even if you have never tried before. Definitely a moment to remember.
