I love Thai food and I found Pia to show me how to cook. It was so easy and fun. She took me to fresh market, Klontoey. There were fresh ingredients that I was so excited to see. Cook from scratch is not difficult if you meet Pia, she will make you laugh and forget time until food ready on table. She is very good teacher, I like to recommend her to you all who love to cook Thai food. You will experience the joy same as me.
This was an amazing cultural experience. Pia first hosted us on a trip to Klong Toey Market, a traditional Thai retail and wholesale food market in Bangkok. We were virtually the only westerners there, but our expert guide made the shopping trip easy. Without Pia's help, the market would have been too bewildering for us to even consider entering, let alone shopping.
Pia gave us pointers on how to pick out the best and freshest produce, meats and seafood. And, as an experienced Thai language teacher, she was also able to teach us how to communicate with the vendors - in Thai - and even how to bargain in a respectful manner. Our shopping trip was followed by cooking lessons and a Thai food feast at Pia's lovely home. This was our first experience in a Thai home and an opportunity to meet, cook with and eat with Pia's husband and children. Her family is delightful and made us feel completely at home.
Absolutely wonderful experience ! The class was fun, educational and very enjoyable - shopping at the market was outstanding. And of course the food was simply delicious. Pia's hospitality was the best - we felt at home and thoroughly enjoyed every moment - superb instructions that made the day delightful. our highest recommendation - easily the highlight of our stay in Bangkok.
