The class itself only had three of us as they try to keep it small, so everyone gets a chance to cook and we are able to learn slowly and have a clearer picture by writing down our own notes and recipes.
Starting out with a trip to the local market was an experience itself. You’ll pick out the freshest locally-sourced ingredients, free from MSG or additives. We learned how to make our own curry paste from scratch instead of buying pre-made ones.
The home-based facility is clean and very organized. We choose 4 dishes (Pad Thai, Tom Yum Goong, Massaman Beef Curry, Green Curry) from a list to cook from. The cooking part was intense and fun. The amount of food we cooked was amazing and so delicious (even better than the restaurant outside).
Our class took longer than the stated time as we made our own curry paste and the Massaman Beef Curry needs a longer time to cook, but Bee was very patient and did not rush through the dishes. She also went the extra mile to pack our last dish as we were too full to eat anymore after having three delicious dishes before. She also offered us some brown rice to bring back to our hotel so we can have it with our green curry for dinner.
Bee is very energetic and bubbly. She is very knowledgeable of the Thai dishes that she taught us and also able to tell us what ingredients we can use to substitute if we can't find the same ingredient in our home country. Not forgetting to mention Ben, who drove us around and had a great conversation with us. Both of them are very friendly and genuine.
These guys are superb and I'm so glad I found them. I would recommend them to anyone and you will not regret. The cooking class was the highlight of our trip to Phuket. You will have to try it yourself to experience it.
