    Thailand Cooking Class
    Nevena_P, Jul 2022
    Amazing! VJ is so helpful and full of passion to teach people. The food we made was actually the best curry and pad thai we ate in Thailand.
    Tasty Food & Fun Class
    Sarah_I, May 2022
    I completely understand why this class has such great reviews because the chef and assistants were awesome. It was cool to start off by going to the market to see some of the items that we would be using. We were also able to taste many different fruits some of which I’ve never seen before. You can also purchase items at the market. I went with the dried peppers and curry. Everything that we cooked was amazing. Just be prepared for a small workout when grinding your curry. I’m definitely in love with sticky rice now. I’ve never tried it until this event and now I may have eaten it too much. That’s definitely the first dish I have to try on my own. She also sends you recipes and will send you additional ones if you request them.
    Absolutely amazing, must do activity!
    Rebecca_B, Apr 2022
    Absolutely amazing experience. Perfect way to end our time in Thailand. This is a must do activity for everyone staying in phuket! Our host as brilliant all the ingredients are fresh that day from the market where they take you before hand. Thanks for teaching us so much, will be trying these recipes again at home.
    Response from Host, Apr 2022
    Thankyou so much for a wonderful review. Am sure you will be making best thai food at home :) very nice to meet you.
    I cooked the best Thai Food with VJ
    Jasmin_Q, Apr 2022
    It was correct and very good idea to join VJ's Cooking Class. Through the conversation with VJ , I knew that she has more than 12 years professional cooking experience. With her experience , I don’t need to worry about the cooking course. We were in the local market for buying all the food goods. It’s really very good organized !!! We cooked 4 different Thailand traditional foods. Unbelievable, I got the best Thai food in Phuket which I cooked by myself.
    Worth it!
    Tawny_A, Mar 2022
    VJs cooking class was excellent! She explained things very well and gave substitutions for vegans or for ingredients that might be hard to find. The recipes were fairly simple and very delicious. It was very satisfying to make my own curry. Highly recommend!
    Response from Host, Mar 2022
    Thankyou so much! Nice meeting you and having you at the class😊
    Definitely a must do
    Vjaceslavs_K, Mar 2022
    Great cooking experience! VJ is very knowledgeable and an amazing teacher. We were part of a small class of only 4 people and had an opportunity to cook 3 dishes each.
    Response from Host, Mar 2022
    Thankyou so much for a wonderful review:) Have a great time in phuket 😊
    Fantastic cooking experience
    Keith_M, Mar 2022
    I fully recommend doing this. Very well organised from start to finish. We were picked up from our hotel in very comfortable transport. From there we were taken to a local market for a tour and then on to the cooking lesson venue. Very well laid out, clean and organised. The instruction was excellent. Informative but fun at the same time. If you are interested in learning a bit about Thai food it's really worth doing this. Great value too.
    An Epicurean gastronomical delight! Way to go, VJ!
    Thomas_E, Feb 2022
    My wife and I are from Danville, CA and are on our first trip Phuket. We thought that it would be fun taking a Thai cooking class, so we signed with VJ’s class. A fourth generation Thai, we found VJ to be extremely knowledgeable, polite and easy to understand. She has her class in a very clean and well equipped kitchen, with a facility large enough to handle up to ten people. Because of the ongoing pandemic we had only four participants. All ingredients were furnished as we began to prepare our delicious four course Thai meal, starting with soup, then the main course, called Pad Thai, followed by a scrumptious curry dish and ending in a wonderful sticky rice dessert. Since I cannot eat spicy foods VJ guided me through the process of making each course very flavorful, eliminating the red peppers. My wife likes spicy food, so we were both very satisfied. This Thai food preparation experience was easy to follow, so we can have a Thai cooking party when we get home, since VJ gave us the recipes for every course we prepared. This was definitely one of the highlights in our 14 day vacation, in Phuket! If we could, we would give this a 10 Star rating. It was a great value! Tom and Lynn
    Amazing class!

    Great selection of classic (and some not-so-classic) Thai-dishes under the warm guidance of our lovely hostess & chef VJ. Hopefully we'll meet again! Cheers, Janne & Lotta

    Great Time with VJ
    Brian K, Oct 2019
    We had a great time at VJ’s cooking class. Hotel pickup was timely and comfortable, The market tour was very cool, and the class itself was great. Instructions were easy, clear, and everyone spoke perfect English. It was good for all skill levels - I cook daily, my wife does not cook and we both really enjoyed it.
    The market trip was great and...

    The market trip was great and informative. The class was small, which was great. The class was fun and easy to follow along with. VJ was very nice and a great teacher.
