Comments from our clients:

Babs van Gilst(VG-Consulting.com) said:

"Chai's cooking course is great and can definitely be recommended.  She is informal and relaxed which encourages questions and puts novice cooks at ease. She starts with an explanation of the Thai ingredients and their importance in Thai cooking and then takes you through how to cook a number of dishes.  All participants get hands on experience without having to spend an entire morning chopping.  And the best thing is that you get to eat the fruit of your results!"


Heather Darnell (Ask-the-Boss) said:

"We had such a great time both preparing and eating the food we made that we all rushed home to try it ourselves the very next week!  I also loved learning about some of the history of Thai food and its ingredients.  I would recommend this course to anyone who loves cooking or even just eating great Thai food!"




Chaisaeng was born and raised in Bangkok where she was trained in her motherís restaurant.  She took time off to study to Masters degree level and work both in Science (Thailand) and Business Information Technology (London, UK), before returning to cookery to fulfil her passion of cooking, and teaching.

To add value to her Thai cookery courses, Chaisaeng has gone back to college again to study Nutrition/ Health/ Lifestyle on a MSc course (part-time) in London.
