Oui´s cooking class did not only make us taste the full beautiful combination of textures and colors of Thai cuisine, it also made us obsessively eager to continue learning and have more and more of Thailand´s culinary gems. We did the course on the early part of our trip and continued talking about it for the rest of it and beyond.
We learned a whole variety of useful tips, all outstandingly well explained by Oui: how to cut the ingredients to make full use of their taste, how to control the spiciness, how to make any Thai dish vegan if you want to, and much more. My girlfriend and I were prepared to go with the flow in case that vegan was not an option and were in the end astonished by the amount of detail and dedication that Ui showed as she enthusiastically explained us how to replace ingredient and made every dish available to us. It was encouraging and heart-warming.
Oui is a fun, smart, loving person with an incredible ability to make cooking easy to learn, only matched by her presentation skills. Each dish was a delight for the eyes as well as for the taste buds.
Only warning: after this course you will probably end up buying a wok, a mortar and talk to your friends about Thai cuisine so much that they will hate you, or kill them with ultra spicy chillies. And your standards for cooking classes will be up to the roof. All completely worth it, though. Make sure to also ask Oui for recommendations about where to eat, for she knows the best places in Chiang Mai.
You will probably also just love her house so much that you will want her to adopt you.
So just book this and enjoy.
like, now, seriously.
