Jirapan and her team were superb hosts and Jirapan's enthusiasm, humour and ability to explain the nuances of ingredients was well appreciated by us all. We can highly recommend the experience."

"I really enjoyed my experience! Jirapan was excellent, professional and friendly, we had a lovely time in my home. As someone who cooks a lot of Asian food, I asked Jirapan to come up with something out of the ordinary. She did and taught me her favourite foods from childhood. It was a success all round and will definitely recommend Paya Thai to my friends.
Thank you and look forward to seeing you again soon. Kind regards, Denise xx"
"My daughter booked the cookery course for my 60th birthday. It turned out to be the perfect birthday present. We were greeted with tea. Then Jirapan introduced us to the unfamiliar ingredients; smelling and tasting each. We then proceeded to create and eat three delicious dishes under the expert guidance of Jirapan. The whole experience felt as though we had been invited to the home of a good friend. Great day, great experience - I would fully recommend your course to anyone"
"This was a superbly run, hands on, cookery class. Stunning venue and small, delightful, group. No pressure. You could just be yourself and enjoy. After being introduced to each other we met with a fruit bowl full of, colourful, fresh, ingredients and got to know about the ones that we were less familiar with or had never met before. Useful tips a plenty and what can and cannot be substituted. What flavours are a MUST and where you can cheat without wrecking your dish. At the end of the afternoon we sat down with new friends and enjoyed a delicious Thai meal. This is a great gift for a friend or loved one or simply indulge yourself! Menu's vary so multiple attendances are not a problem. Highly recommended."
"It was an enjoyable morning learning our chosen Thai recipes with Jirapan and her assistant! I learnt so much and would definitely return and will recommend to everyone I know what a great way to treat someone instead of presents!!
The demonstration was extremely interesting with good participation...great fun!"
