As I'd done a wonderful cooking class in Chiang Mai the week before, I searched the internet for one in Bangkok. Wow to find a food carving course was a bonus as I'd admired the carved food on the cruise ships that we had traveled on over the passed 15 years. It was fantastic to see and learn the technique to produce the wonderful items myself. Our teacher was 'One'.... Yes strange name but what a lovely, patient and gently person. I did the 5 hour carving course with a guy from Israel and we had so much fun together... As it was held at a restaurant, they also prepared us a fantastic lunch, Pad Thai, while we continued to learn. I would highly recommend that you do the course to learn how to carve food so that your next dinners would be special and your friends would be so amazed.... I will be doing this again when we next return to Bangkok. Regards Lee from Australia
Totally recommend this place for everyone. Every dish was so tasty and the teacher was so nice. The class was really fun. I will definitely go back to do it again and try different dishes.
My friend and I took this class. We got to prepare 6 dishes and it was a fantastic experience to learn about the basic of Thai cooking. Then I got to eat the food I made. All dishes tasted so good. In addition everyone received a recipe booklet. This is a great activity.
