Overview
More
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.
