Very good teacher, friendly and full of passion. Good cooking environment and treated me as a family member. Cooking the dish was easy and operating under the coaching from chef Aey. Overall, very enjoyable!

Cooking class with Chef Aey is highly recommended. Although the class time is a little bit long for us, we had so much fun and enjoyed every section of the class. The foods were super delicious. I still miss them. Those foods are way better than other local restaurant in my opinion,maybe it's because they are made with traditional recipe. Chef Aey was kind and taught us many good cooking tips as well.
The teacher was very funny and her lessons very useful. Nice experience. Really Good tastes. Recomend.
We had a fantastic time with Chef Aey. She is incredibly knowledgable and very happy to teach others. The food we made in her class was some of the best food (Thai or not) we've ever had!
The class was just we are looking for, background theory and good practical teaching. We enjoyd the class very much and chef Aoy is realy a master chef, next opertunety we will go there again.
I took this class with by wife and 2 kids, all of us thoroughly enjoyed the class and Chef Aey. The class was held in Chef Aey’s home kitchen which was well equipped and very comfortable. Excellent instruction was provided with respect to cooking processes, recipes and ingredients. Best of all, we enjoyed a great meal, eating the dishes we prepared as we went along. We would all highly recommend this classes.
We loved this class and chef Aey made the experience so special! She's so friendly and her home is so cozy and the class was very well prepared. This was the best thing we did in Bangkok!
Cooking with Chef Aey was very enjoyable. She is very nice and provides interesting information on the ingredients for Thailand's most typical dishes. The food was very good too and it was a lot for 1 person! The class takes place at her home, that is near to the MRT and to the Esplanade shopping center, where you are dropped after the class.
A truly heartwarming experience. I went with my kids (11 and 14). Chef Aey treated us like friends she had invited into her home. She enlivened the class with personal stories and her wonderful sense of humor. You learn better when you are relaxed, she said. And we did! It was a hot afternoon and we skipped the trip to the market. Instead she had laid out beautifully the local ingredients, telling us the names of them all, their use, letting us smell them. The explaining, the cutting, the mixing was done indoors. And just outside that main room the woks had been all set for individual use. Her staff would come by at the perfect timing for a photo op. She later sent us all the pics along with the recipes and other tips she had talked about. It was just so much fun, getting to actually make 4 dishes for yourself, eating them, and really, just spending time with Chef Aey! My kids and I agree. We would like to go back to her place again.
An enjoyable afternoon cooking class with plenty to eat too. We started with all the fresh ingredients and had a good introduction to Thai cooking. A very friendly host with good English. I was recommmend and it was excellent value for the price.
One of the highlights of our Bangkok trip. I've been there many times but never thought to take a cooking class. This class is in quiet suburb behind Rot Fai market (itself worth a visit- one of the coolest markets in bkk). Chef Aey had great reviews and I totally get why. She has a vibrant, warm energy and loves teaching. She knows a lot about Thai cooking, has really strong English, and makes the whole session fun! If you love the diversity of Thai flavors, colors, and want to learn about the crazy array of vegetables, and how to whip up the Thai staples, don't miss this. It'll really change your trip!
Our leader for the day, Chef Aey, was personable, knowledgable, and committed to giving us a fun learning experience. We spent some time smelling, feeling, and tasting key Thai ingredients, like the four different kinds of ginger (yes, there are 4!), lemongrass, Thai basil, chilis, two kinds of lime), and coriander. Of course the very best part of our vegan Thai cooking class in Bangkok was the eating part! Between the two of us, we made five dishes: Tom Yam Hed, a pungent clear soup with lemongrass, Thai basil, and mushrooms; Tom Ka Hed, coconut milk-based soup with mushrooms; the classic pad Thai, but without the eggs or shrimp; green curry; and delicious mango sticky rice for desert. We are vegan and Chef Aey went out of her way to show us how to make the dishes without any animal products, too. Highly recommended!
Cooking with Aey is the ideal way to enjoy an authentic cultural and culinary experience. Aya didn't just teach us to follow her or the cookbook but how to be creative and understand the basic of cooking Thai food. What we love most is that she didn't have a fix menu. Aya took into account that we do not eat all products and offered substitutes. Our class started with a trip to a local market to buy fresh ingredient then we prepared meals. We made coconaut milk and curry paste completely from scratch. Aya explained to us which ingredients are obligatory in every dish and which can be exchanged. She told about the types of products, the recognition of herbs and much more. She devoted more time to us than she assumed the course scenario. You can see that she loves what she does. A day after the course, we received almost 40 page document with recipes and all information that we heard on the course, as well as photographs. It was an unforgettable experience.
Not similar to other cooking classes. Learn with a small class, even like a private class. Starting from visiting the local market, we exchanged a lot. Homemade coconut milk and curry paste rather than cooking with packaged ingredients. It is not just a class, it is an exchange. Excellent care of vegetarian also.
The teacher is so nice, funny and full of passion in teaching. Small group teaching which the teacher could pay attention to each single student, you could easily follow step by step. I enjoyed the class so much.
To understand the very best of the fine Thai dish, you must try Chef Aey's cooking class. In a small class, I got more chances to talk with and ask questions to the Chef, and I understood "fresh, harmonious, and nice color" are the keys of the fine Thai dish. If you wonder how freshness of shrimp can be tasted from a heavy soup like tom yum goong, Chef Aey will help you! 這不只是一堂烹飪課，更是一門教你吃懂泰國菜的學問。Chef Aey 的教室不大、學生不會太多，因此會有更多機會發問和跟老師說話，Chef Aey不只有真正的主廚經驗，媽媽也是位大廚，教學所用的食譜是星級飯店才吃得到的精緻美味，而且儘可能讓學生嘗試像親手搾椰漿或磨綠咖哩醬。如果你還沒試過可以喝到有蝦的鮮甜味的冬陰功 或者吃到椰奶層次的綠咖哩，你一定不會失望!
Chef Aey is so nice and kind! She took the time to explain every ingredient to us and we prepared the different meal from the beginning until the end. It was a great experience!
