My wife and I both thoroughly enjoyed this experience, which gave us a much better understanding both of Thai cooking and the importance of flowers in Thai culture, as well as a full stomach :) The class, hosted in our case by Alyssa, was well structured and although we covered a lot things never seemed rushed. It was a real privilege to learn from an professional chef, who was clearly very happy to share her knowledge and experience with us. We had already visited the flower market where the class is hosted on a previous trip, so it was especially good to learn more about how the flower market is organized (yes, it is organized, despite seeming to be totally chaotic!). The dishes that we cooked were all things that covered a good range of basic Thai ingredients, and Alyssa was happy to show us also where in the market to buy supplies for us to take home. The class ended with making a flower garland - an almost meditative experience at the end of the busy afternoon. Overall highly recommended to anyone interested in Thai food or culture.

Alyssa的课程很棒。我平时比较少做菜。老师的每一步都讲解的很仔细。我非常享受参与制作泰国菜的过程。不懂的地方都可以马上得到答案。我回家后也会尝试做菜给朋友吃。是一个非常难得的体验。

My daughter (11) liked this cooking and flower evening best in BKK! It was wonderful. We got to pick out flower from market and learn all about it! I am an american florist and I still learned so so much. Alyssa and her staff (Nan) are so knowledgable and extremely well educated - fluent in English. They were so kind to us. I cannot recommend her more!!

This was a great experience in Bangkok. Lamrawee has a lot of knowledge about the market and it was great speaking to her and also the flower teacher, Jo. Would love to come back to learn more.
