Enjoy a scenic boat ride, market tour, cooking class and lunch with a fun-loving local chef at her beautiful, riverside home. Your host will pick you up from the BTS station and drive you to two markets. First, stop at an extensive wholesale market where over Thai snacks and coffee, you will discover a huge variety of produce, seafood and noodle makers. Next head over to the bustling local Don Wai market where you will discover regional produce - you will seldom find a non-local here. Hop in a boat from the nearby pier and enjoy a breezy and beautiful boat ride along the serene Tha Chin river to your guide's riverside home. Enjoy a refreshing drink before you roll up your sleeves to slice, dice and learn to cook an authentic Thai meal in the well-equipped studio kitchen. After your cooking class, share some of the dishes that you helped create. Be prepared to share many laughs over drinks with your charming and fun-loving host who loves sharing her culture and cuisine with travelers.

Here, in the calm of her garden oasis, you will be greeted with a refreshing drink before joining her in the professional kitchen studio for your cooking class. In this hands-on cooking class, you will learn to prepare from scratch two favorite Thai dishes. Your host will share her deep knowledge of Thai herbs and spices and passion for cooking as you cook together in her studio kitchen that is also used by her other cooks for the restaurant she runs from her home. Be prepared to chop vegetables, pound spices, and laugh as you cook together with this charming and fun-loving host!
Dine on your host's creative Thai dishes based on her family recipes in a modern, air-conditioned, glass dining room overlooking the river. Your meal will include dishes such as Muu phad grachhay (fried pork marinated in herbs and topped with fried finger root), Gang phed ped yang (red curry with roasted duck, pineapple, pumpkin and sweet basil), Pad Thai with shrimp, Somtam lood (one of your guide's signature dishes with shredded green papaya, shrimp, tomato, long green bean, and roasted peanut all beautifully wrapped in a noodle sheet and served with a sweet and sour dressing) or Tom yum gluuay (banana in spicy soup with fragrant Thai herbs) followed by dessert. You will enjoy your meal over a glass of local beer. Your guide will then drop you off at the Bang Wa station so you can take the BTS train home.
Your host is not only passionate about cooking but also presenting dishes artfully with flowers and herbs from her garden. She lives on a lush, beautiful property on the banks of the Tha Chin River which is in the Nakhon Sathom Province - it is a wonderful stop en route back from the Damnoen Saduak floating market into the city.
Please note that your host runs a restaurant out of her home so there may be a few patrons of the restaurant in the dining room during the lunch hour.
