What I liked: She will show you the backstreets and the secret local markets that you will miss if a local didn't show you around. The market is as local as it gets. About 6 families come together and sell what they buy from the wholesale flower market nearby. Kaew’s helpful tips on Thai cooking are also very insightful.
What to know: This is a simple cooking school in the Khaosan area.
Good for: Backpackers staying near Khaosan
How to get there: National Stadium BTS and then take a taxi or tuk tuk to Khaosan.

Very friendly, good knowledge, We liked the walk around the local market, and getting the ingredients, well worth the money and the experience , will take this home with us.
We had a reservation for 3. In the way over, we underestimated how long it would take so we were about an hour late due to traffic. Our host accommodated for us as it ended up being a private class. She customised the curry to the level of spiciness and took us on a personalised tour around the markets, allowing us to buy fresh produce to take back to our home country. It was an amazing experience, and best of all, I no longer have to venture outside my own home to get mango sticky rice
Small group, we had three people in the class plus the instructor ( who was awesome). The maket tour was great, it makes you see khao san area in a new way. The food it self was delicious and fresh. You get to be very involved in cooking and prep process! Would highly reccomend over larger commercial cooking schools.
Loved walking to the market and shopping for the raw materials to cook with.
The instructor was really nice and the class size being so small was wonderful. The food was great but the kitchen could use some work. Just a little bit of a/c could help a lot.
I had a great afternoon at Lemongrass cooking school in Bangkok. The class included a trip to a local market and a little walking tour of the immediate area. It was cool to see how rice papers are made locally and fun to use them fresh later while cooking! The dishes prepared were tasty, the instructions were clear, and a recipe book was provided so that I can practice at home. The class is a short walk from hotels in the Khao San area, which was very convenient.
The teacher was super nice, she took us around the neighborhood to find hidden gems in the Khao San area. We would never have found those places without her ! The class itself was amazing, so flavorful :) and some of us left with goodies to take back.
In addition to learning so much about Thai cooking--skills that we are very much looking forward to putting into practice back home--we also learned so much about Thai culture. Can't recommend this class enough.
My daughter & I thoroughly enjoyed our Thai cooking course with Gail. The food shopping beforehand was fascinating and informative. The cooking lesson was fun, very well thought out and included lots of fresh ingredients that were unfamiliar to us. We left feeling inspired & with the feeling that we could confidently tackle some Thai cooking on our return home. Many thanks again to Gail.
This half day class was perfect for our group of three. The market tour wasn't fancy, but it felt like what a typical Thai person would do any day of the week to get their food. It was great also to stop by one vendor who was making the rice paper wrappers by hand! The instructor was very organized. While 6 dishes sound like a lot to fit in, we didn't feel rushed. Our instructor gave us a lot of great tips throughout the process, focusing on authenticity of ingredients and good health. While it might be difficult to recreate these dishes in America, due to the ingredients we used, the techniques weren't difficult and the results were absolutely delicious!!!
This was a great experience from the market to the kitchen. Learning the daily activities at the market, and the process of selecting the right ingredients was a very cool inside look in Thai culture. Cooking all the amazing dishes that I have been eating throughout Thailand was mind blowing and so rewarding. I will be practicing all of the skills I learned at home with the recipe book I received!!!
We had a great experience learning to cook traditional Thai cuisine. Gale was nice young and very friendly. We were similar in age and all got along well. The dishes she taught us to make were actually better than anything we had in any restaurants and we left full with a nice cookbook to take home of what we learned. Thanks for the great memories.
We enjoyed so much our cooking course!! Highly recommended. Today, only one day after returning from Thailand, we are meeting at an asian store, buying the equipment and ingridients for cooking Thai food. Tomorrow we are meeting friends and we will cook for them Thai food. All thanks to our wonderful instructor from Lemon Grass. Please note that at home my wife does all the cooking and I am banned from the kitchen. My work requires intensive travel around the world, so I stay at hotels, I dont remember when was the last time I cooked an egg for breakfast. Obviously I didn't have any confidence in my cooking, let alone asian cooking, when we started, me and my son, the 4 hours course at Lemon Grass. After an exciting trip to the market we had a very enjoyable course where we learned all the basics, from soups, to main courses and dessert. Don't miss!!
