Rachel Vannee

Cooking Class at Classic Home Cooking School

I chose Vanee for our cooking lesson because it seemed small classes and very personal i didn't realize we would hit the jack pot and it be just my husband and myself.
Vanee and her husband picked us up at our hotel and instantly put us at ease. She explained we would choose 4 dishes from different categories and then we would shop for the ingredients then back to her house. so whilst driving to the market we choose our dishes .
thia green curry
papaya salad
stif fry chicken and ginger
chicken noodles
we then bought the goodies as Vanee explained some of the more unusual things at the market to us .
we crossed the road to buy coconut milk from a different shop and Vanee explained the whole process it was quite fascinating to watch and learn which bits make the milk and cream .
then we set off to Vanees home and we chatted int the car learning a little about their lives. having heard they had a restaurant in Bangkok for many years that seated 200 and seeing a family members chef working history i knew we were in good hands . ( im a real foody ) .

we arrived at the house and we were both impressed at the outdoor kitchen set up .

our instructions were very clear and easy to follow and Vanee made learning fun .
my husband never cooks and he loved it ( we went out after and bought the same utensils and he has spent hours since home researching woks.)
we each cooked what we were going to eat which was great as im a real chilli lover so could make mine as hot as i liked.
Vanee took photos of us through out and generally made our day fantastic . She is a lovely lady .
whilst we ate our lunch Vanee signed our certificates and presented us with a cook book .
so no excuses we have to cook thai now we are home.
in fact i have cooked thai twice now and they tasted good. Vannee you taught us well.
Book this lady you wont regret it she is Fantastic. She is also my friend on facebook now :)

Nadeane Kuala Lumpur

Discover the Best Local Food Spots @Night

We had a fantastic time and learnt a lot! It's obvious TK is a foodie who is really passionate both about food and his culture. He had a great sense of humour and was happy to tailor the trip as we were travelling with 2 young kids. He was great with the kids and even got my 5 year old to try the most delicious chicken wings and sweet rotis... that in itself was amazing! He usually won't eat anything adventurous! A great tie was had by all and I would totally insist that you must do this tour when in KL. It added so much to our experience and really was great value. Thanks TK for an awesome night!

Alys Henrick

Belleville Urban Walk Tour

Henrick's tour of the North-East neighborhood is highly interesting. Henrick has excellent historic knowledge of Paris, and particularly of these less-known areas. If you want to visit up-and-coming neighborhoods off the beaten tracks, this tour is for you!
