My husband and I spent a wonderful day working with Chef Ying and her husband, Lionel, who was like a highly convivial maitre d', plus a highly accomplished chef in his own right. The pace was driven by our skills, the food we cooked and then ate, was utterly delicious. These people care passionately about making your experience as enjoyable as possible, as well as learning the intricacies of Thai cuisine. We would highly recommend a visit to the academy to anyone who enjoys local food and would like to replicate some of the amazing flavors back home.
We've had a great experience at Phuket Cooking Academy. Our teacher, King, spoke very good English and was easy to understand. We started the day at the market where she made us try a bunch of fruits, veggies and herbs. Next we went to the school where we ate sticky rice desserts for breakfast and got an overview of the course. The class is on a covered deck in the back of a private residence. Each student gets an apron, a hat, a burner and several woks to cook in. It was very clean and well organised. We started with making our own coconut cream and milk then made curry for our recipes. My wife and I went for the full day course. We cooked 10 meals. It was a lot of fun and I was impressed with the quality and taste of the meals we were able to cook. I recommend you take the course early in your trip because you get to understand more about the products available at the markets and it breaks the ice for the rest of your trip, you get to enjoy more of the desserts, sweets, and meals available in Thailand. This is a great activity to do in Phuket and it was one of my favorite. Thank you, King, for your kindness and the quality of your teaching. I highly recommend the Phuket Cooking Academy!
