Owner description: Cook like a local and eat like a local, with the knowledgeable and charismatic Mon. Classes are small, maximum 6 students, and together you design your favorite menu. Cooking with Mon is for everyone, young and old and even people who are not into cooking rate Cooking with Mon as one of the highlights of their holiday. You are not just cooking, you are spending a wonderful day with friends eating and having fun and without even noticing, you also learn a lot. Class is also very suitable for vegetarian, vegans and older children (from +/- 8 years). Classes cost 1500 baht per person and you will be cooking everything from scratch. Mon will introduce you to all the herbs, spices and Thai flavours. He doesn't just introduce you to a recipe but helps you develop 'a feeling' for Thai food. You will prepare three of your own favourite dishes, the way you like it (but of course Mon will always try to push you to add more chillies...) and finish the day with an additional delicious Thai dessert. We start the day at 11 am and cook until we are done, between 3-5 pm, depends on the dishes. At the end of the class you will receive a pdf file with all the recipes Mon has ever taught, so you can continue to experiment with Thai food back home. We are located in a little fisherman village south of the pier in Old Town. You will have a real authentic local experience surrounded by playing children, chicken and fishermen.

We had a great time during our cooking class with Mon! He is so fun and a great teacher. We got to choose our 4 dishes and went home with all 30 of Mon's recipes to cook at home. We met and chatted with fellow travelers from other countries during this class as well. Old Town is a great Town to explore and get the true local experience (very few tourists). We are so glad we reserved this class during our trip! :)

Two of us joined a small group of 5 people to learn how to cook in the Thai style. Mon was a great teacher, made the day very enjoyable and provided us with his recipes to take home. We cooked delicious food and learnt new skills. A really good day.

A wonderfull cooking class with cheerfull Mon! We were able to help pick out the menu and loved making everything from scratch. You’ll be eating all day so don’t eat too much breakfast!

Some of the best food I've ever had and super super fun. Can't give enough praise and I really can't think of anyone I wouldn't recommend this to. If you are anywhere on Koh Lanta or even in Krabi, put this on your itinerary for sure.

Four ladies from Canada had the pleasure of meeting Mon and his family yesterday.
The day was so wonderful and it will be an experience I will never forgot.
The produce bought locally fresh from the market. The setting an outside kitchen with a new garden with fresh herbs recently planted. Can’t wait to see how the garden looks in a year or so. A newly built table of leftover wood pieces to dine at, rustic and charming.
Learning the herbs, making the sauces, we only had four to our group so we all got to cook, chop and crush peanuts and chilies �. We got to taste each of our dishes with one another and sit down to eat. We chose Pad Thai, crispy sweet & sour chicken & spring rolls. All the dishes turned out amazing. It was a great day! We all really enjoyed ourselves. Thank-you Mon & Mayaa for a wonderful day and thank you to the nice lady who cleaned up all of our mess and dishes. That was greatly appreciated. Thank you for the great memories �
