During our last stay at Phuket my girlfriend and I decided to visit a cooking course, because we are big fans of thai food. We found (via TripAdvisor) the Phuket Thai Cookery school and can fully recommend this company to anybody who is interested to learn some additional skills in asian or especialy Thai cooking.
Everything worked very well. Fast and friendly support by email around our booking, easy and in time pick up at our hotel in Patong Beach and transfer to Phuket town, where we first visited the market to see and learn about the ingredients.
On this day we have been the only customers also we would have wished the company a bigger request by curious tourists (but we were at Phuket during lower season). After finishing shopping we had a transfer to the school itself, which isn´t in Phuket Town, but on the outer skirts of the city directly on the shores of the Indian Ocean! We found a realy nice open air kitchen so while cooking or eating the food, we had a beautiful overview to the turquise sea.
This is a must see, instead of a boring class-room somewhere around in the city.
All instructors are very very friendly, speak perfect English, so understanding is quite easy. Everything is prepared on arrival, the kitchen is clean and nicely furnished. All ingredients are fresh and presented to the pupils in a perfect m manner. It was a joy first to be teached and to try what the instructors were cooking as a lesson and after that seeing that our own attempt was also a total success. We had 5 dishes, from startres, to soup to maincorse and then a desert, which we all will produce at home back in Germany. You can buy some special ingrediants that will last long in your kitchen.
We had a beautiful holiday experience that we will remember often when cooking those dishes at home.
As written in the beginning: We can fully reccomend this experience to any other tourist looking to have a good time at Phuket!
