This was a lot of fun and surprisingly hard work! I've always wanted to take one of these classes and I'm happy I chose this one. Our instructor was friendly and patient with everyone. He even sent us the recipes of the foods we made and many others from the other classes.

Todd really knew his stuff, and made learning about Thai food, and how to cook it, really fun. The trip to the market to buy the ingredients was really interesting, and eating the food we’d made was amazing. Easily one of the best ways to spend a day whilst visiting Chiang Mai
