Overview

One of the most highly acclaimed Thai cooking experiences in Bangkok, Cooking with Poo and Friends is limited to 12 participants to maintain an intimate setting and includes a personal tour through the Klong Toey market to purchase ingredients for the day's menu. The class is hosted by Khun Poo's amazing staff, a group of long-time residents of the Klong Toey slum who have displayed incredible resolve despite personal difficulties. The class is practical, warm, fun, and gives a true taste of Thai culture you'll never forget.

Can’t recommend this highly enough. Both the market tour and the cooking session were really interesting but very enjoyable too. A fascinating experience with enthusiastic people who obviously care about what they are doing. And you eat everything you cook.
