Great experience - Chef CeCe was so lively and animated! We had fun learning about the various foods we were going to be cooking with. She spoke good English and explained things well! We made delicious Thai dishes and it was a lot of food so come hungry. The whole experience was enjoyable. Definitely worth the time.

Lily’s Sparkle. - A Prompt pick up from the hotel was much appreciated. Lily was fabulous, friendly. Informative & fun. Lily was a great host & teacher. She explained everything clearly & looked after everyone in the group. She is a skilled cook too & had plenty of top tops for us during the preparations etc, resulting in delicious food which we were al very proud of. I really enjoyed the food but couldn’t eat it all so lily packed it up for me to take away which was very kind. We really enjoyed the whole experience & I think it was Lily’s sparkle that made it such a memorable experience.

Must do experience!! - Lily our teacher made this experience unforgettable. She was fun, caring and so informative about everything. We did a tour around the farm and got to try all the ingredients fresh and then again when cooking. We learnt about fragrance, taste and even how different ingredients are simply used for colour and aroma rather than flavour. Highly recommend this experience! Thank you so so much Lily :)

Pad Thai for me - Smile organic cooking school was a fun activity. Enjoyed with 11 other people. They never asked me to submit any reviews. Not all ingredients had been prepared. K was the instructed and he made the experience very enjoyable and we learnt a lot of information. The class was at the right pace, and we all spoke English. Opted for the half day session. The toilets needed a ‘deep’ clean and pump soap needs to be provided. Looking for a serious class not for you.
