I had a great time at VJ's class. I learned a lot about Thai cuisine, and got to eat the most delicious curry of my life (that I made myself!). Would highly recommend to anyone.

This was a fantastic experience we did alongside one other couple. We loved learning about how to make every aspect of the dishes from scratch and the resulting meals were delicious! Going through the local food market was a real highlight too.

Really fun class, very informative and delicious! VJ is excellent, extremely knowledgable and passionate. We made green (or red) curry, including making the curry paste ourselves. We also made Tom Yam soup and pad thai.
