The following extra information was sent to us by the cooking school:

We have 5 different one day courses, which keep rotating (7 days a week), and run from 10am to 4pm. Each course has been designed as a one day course and we aim to teach you the main techniques for cooking Thai food, regardless of which course you take. If you want to do more than one day, you can start with any of the courses and do not have to take them in a specific order. If you take more than one course, then you will get more hands on practice and learn all the techniques used for cooking Thai food. All our courses can be adapted for vegetarians but we need to know in advance. We can accommodate up to 25 people in one class with 3-5 instructors.

There are 2 different locations to choose from. One is at Sompon's house out side the city (taking around 20 minutes drive and transportation is provided to and from). Other courses take place at his restaurant (The Wok restaurant) which is centrally located. It is ideal location for people who are short of time.

The classes are designed for people who love Thai food and want to learn the secrets of Thai cooking. Our courses are appropriate for people who have some experience in Thai cooking and also for complete beginners. The cookery courses are taught by Sompon and his fully trained staff of teachers, who all speak good English.

The prices per person are as follows:
1 day: 990 baht
2 days: 1900 baht
3 days: 2800 baht
4 days: 3700 baht
5 days: 4600 baht

Prices are inclusive of:

  • ingredients
  • food
  • drinks (tea, coffee and water)
  • full colour cookbook containing the recipes from all 5 courses ie. 30 recipes
  • round trip transfer from hotel (city centre only)

Early booking can be made by e-mail, phone or in person, at least one day before the course is due to take place.
