Thoroughly enjoyed the cooking class, the instructors were informative and fun and the food was great. Highly recommended ... as someone who loves to cook I found the instruction excellent ...but even people that don't particularly enjoy to cook will have fun in this class.

Lazy Thai cooking - Pum's words not mine - read her books to learn more. 4 of us as a family unit attended a day's cooking class in Patong. The lady herself, Pum, sat us down for a taste sensational journey before we started the cooking sessions. She painstakingly showed us knife skills and cutting practice to ensure all vegies were cut "just-so" for texture and presentation.
We had previously sent her 5 dishes each that we would like to cook; so we all prepared vegetables, and learned the surprisingly simple base recipes for the chosen sauces, ie, red and green curry pastes.
Then to the kitchen to meet our trainer-chef, who had obtained all the meats, fish prawns etc for the heap of dishes to come. Chef impressed upon us to minimise oil and to carefully watch temperature. So for lunch we had 10 dishes (don't have breakfast beforehand) then we had 8 dishes and two desserts - don't throw away your over-ripe bananas, cooked in coconut milk and served cold...delicious.
When the cooking and eating (over-eating) finished chef donned her street togs and took us on a very informative shopping tour of the Patong "wet" markets showing us what to buy and alternatives we might need at home.
We got the book, we ate well, the food was fantastic and yet uncomplicated in prep and cooking: all I all a thoroughly enjoyable activity for all levels of home cooks.

Both my husband & I have recently attended Pums cooking class and enjoyed every bit of it.
We were lucky to have Pum show us how to cook a couple dishes & then enjoyed eating our creations.
What I thought was a long & time consuming meals to cook, turned out to be quick, simple & very fast to create.
Thanks Pum & your team - we both enjoyed ourselves and can't wait to get back to Australia & try our talents out

Wasn't keen at first but partner insisted. Glad we did it -- staff is very friendly, fun, and knowledgeable. Food you make ends up being great under their steer and it opens up you eyes to the wonders and simplicity of thai cooking and flavours!

Very clear instruction. Our group had only three of us rather than six so we got a lot of attention. Made easy because everything was chopped before. Good value because you get a large meal out of it too. Would not go for more than 3 hours as it be exhausting. Not all he recipes you cook are in the booklet they give you which means you'll probably end up buying the more expensive book.
