    Stop: 6 hours -
    Your host will pick you up in her car at the Bang Wa BTS Station at 8am and drive you to the bustling Don Wai Market, known for its wide variety of vegetables and Thai snacks, located next to a Buddhist temple. As you shop together and pick-up a few ingredients for your meal, she will show you regional fruit and vegetables at her preferred vendors in the market. After learning about the local produce and farming community you will board a boat that your guide steers herself. Enjoy the river breeze and passing views of local homes and lush river vegetation during your 30-minute boat ride to your guide's tropical riverside home.  Here, in the calm of her garden oasis, you will be greeted with a refreshing drink before joining her in the professional kitchen studio for your cooking class. In this hands-on cooking class, you will learn to prepare from scratch two favorite Thai dishes. Your host will share her deep knowledge of Thai herbs and spices and passion for cooking as you cook together in her studio kitchen that is also used by her other cooks for the restaurant she runs from her home. Be prepared to chop vegetables, pound spices, and laugh as you cook together with this charming and fun-loving host!   Dine on your host's creative Thai dishes based on her family recipes in a modern, air-conditioned, glass dining room overlooking the river. Your meal will include dishes such as Muu phad grachhay (fried pork marinated in herbs and topped with fried finger root), Gang phed ped yang (red curry with roasted duck, pineapple, pumpkin and sweet basil), Pad Thai with shrimp, Somtam lood (one of your guide's signature dishes with shredded green papaya, shrimp, tomato, long green bean, and roasted peanut all beautifully wrapped in a noodle sheet and served with a sweet and sour dressing) or Tom yum gluuay (banana in spicy soup with fragrant Thai herbs) followed by dessert. You will enjoy your meal over a glass of local beer. Your guide will then drop you off at the Bang Wa station so you can take the BTS train home. Your host is not only passionate about cooking but also presenting dishes artfully with flowers and herbs from her garden. She lives on a lush, beautiful property on the banks of the Tha Chin River which is in the Nakhon Sathom Province - it is a wonderful stop en route back from the Damnoen Saduak floating market into the city. Please note that your host runs a restaurant out of her home so there may be a few patrons of the restaurant in the dining room during the lunch hour.
