We are lucky enough to have met Chorchaba Harper a fantastic Thai chef who grew up in Thailand and has been in the UK for many years teaching cookery classes. Her philosophy is for you to get hands on and will be shoulder to shoulder with you engaging your five senses of touch, look, smell, hear and most importantly heart to achieve those authentic Thai flavours.

Chorchaba was about seven years when she started cooking and used to sell fishcakes at the local railway station to commuters on their way to work.  This meant getting up at the crack of dawn in order to make them fresh each day (no refrigerators in those days!).  Her fish cakes must have been popular because she sold out everyday!

All our classes can be adapted to most allergies and preferences – just let us know in the notes when booking
