    This cooking class has been the highlight of my trip. Oui welcomed me into her home and taught me how to cook some incredible and authentic dishes. She was so lovely and her passion for Thai food makes it a joy to spent the day with her!

    Der Kurs hat sehr viel Spass gemacht und wir haben eine Menge dabei gelernt. War dort zusammen mit meine Sohn (17 Jahre) und auch der war sehr begeistert. Die Gastgeberin und ihr Lebensgefährte sind beide sehr nett und herzlich. Besonders gut gefallen hat uns, dass wir uns die Gerichte selbst aussuchen konnten und die Gruppe ganz klein war. Auch der Besuch auf dem Markt war schon ein besonderes Erlebnis. Kann den Kurs nur weiter empfehlen.

    We attended Trichada’s amazing cooking class on Valentine’s day and it was the best idea ever! It all started with a visit to the picturesque local market and then we were warmly welcomed by Trichada’s partner to their home and started our journey to real Thai traditional cuisine. We got to choose among a wide variety of tasty dishes to prepare (and eat, of course) and could always rely on Trichada’s masterful help and great advice. It was lovely to get to know more about Thai cookery but especially to meet such friendly and welcoming people. Me and my fiancé will always remember having this experience and would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in this beautiful exotic culture and cookery! Thank you again Trichada and Peter, we hope to meet you again soon <3

    Absolutes must-do für alle die thailändisches Essen mögen.
    Die Schule ist etwas außerhalb der Stadt, was einem das lokale Thailand zeigt. Außerdem wurden wir persönlich abgeholt und fuhren auf dem weg zu einem lokalen Markt.
    Die Gastgeberin ist eine herzliche, liebenswerte Frau der man die Liebe zum Kochen und den Zutaten anmerkt. Sie lehrt mit Leidenschaft und man wird von Ihrer Begeisterung angesteckt.
    Der Tag war sehr lehrreich und angenehm und durch die kleine Gruppenanzahl sehr persönlich.

    (Absolute must-do for those who like Thai food. The school is a bit out of town, which shows you the local Thailand. In addition, we were personally picked up and drove on the way to a local market. The hostess is a warm, lovely woman who shows love for cooking and ingredients. She teaches with passion and you get infected by your enthusiasm. The day was very educational and enjoyable and very personal due to the small number of groups.)
