An amazing place! The cooking class is so much fun and very educational. The herb garden is huge, and you pick everything by yourself before you use for the cooking. The hosts are incredibly nice and gracious! Very much recommended!!

This was a last minute booking as our scuba diving trip got cancelled, but how glad I am that it happened. We were picked up in the morning from our hotel and driven to Cameron and Lat's house for the cooking class and what a place to do it!!!!

The class is done outside but undercover and a beautiful spot, surrounded by the wonderful gardens they have there, with a variety of herbs and vegetables that you use in your cooking growing, talk about fresh!

Lat is very welcoming and never stops smiling! She goes through each recipe step by step, but you get to do it all yourself and it tastes incredible. On arrival we made Pad Thai, so make sure you don't have breakfast before hand. We then had a look around the gardens to see everything growing and sample some of the herbs.

We then made three dishes, a green chicken curry, a red pork curry and papaya salad. We made our own coconut milk and cream for use in the dishes and then sat down to enjoy the food together.

This is a fantastic day out and one of the best cooking classes I have ever done, it is in a wonderful setting and you will make some of the best tasting food you have ever eaten. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Samui!!

Spending the day learning how to cook Thai food from Lat was truly the highlight of my trip! The entire experience of touring the greenhouses, to picking the ingredients we needed, watching Lat demonstrate, laughing as we attempt it ourselves, to sitting down to eat what we just cooked was over the top fabulous! Both Lat and her husband Cameron are wonderful hosts! Cameron took incredible pictures while we cooked which he emailed to us; such a gift to be able to share with family and friends. Now that I am back home, I have cooked several dishes for my friends who absolutely loved what I cookedi!

After such a great experience, I plan to seek out other cooking classes wherever I travel!

Lat is still laughing from the time she spent with you... It really was a fun filled day and we're so happy to hear it was the highlight of your trip. Keep up the cooking and when you're back on Samui we would love to have you return and learn some extra special Thai cuisine. Very best wishes from us all on Samui...

We learned to cook with Lat on 23 Feb 2015. Cameron took superb pics of the proceedings and sent them same day to my mail. The experience was great in all respects. We came away with the recipes we cooked and cannot wait to start preparing Thai food at home. Lat's kitchen is modern and fully equipped and open to the jungle air, really nice. If you want the chance to learn the true Thai way with food, don't go anywhere else, you will not be disappointed!

Me and my wife went here for a cooking class. The pickup was prompt and after a short drive we arrived at the "classroom". After we received the recipies we went into the garden to find the fresh herbs we needed for the cooking. The cook, Lat was very enthousiastic and explained everything about the way the herbs are grown. Plus she let us taste the herbs and they were delicious.
Then we started cooking. She explained everything very well and so we made our own lunch. Because everything is fresh and because you make it yourself it tastes very, very well.
Lat and her husband are very nice people and they make the class personal. The herb garden gives it a nice touch. If we come back next year, we will surely visit Lat again.
If you want to take a cooking class, don't hesitate, go with Island Organics!
