Alexandra “Taya has designed an incredible experience for Thai cooking enthusiasts. While her wonderful warmth and humour has you laughing, Taya also manages to keep the whole group on track so that you end the day with a sumptuous feast to share…You even get plenty of leftovers!”

Lynette “Went to class tonight and had a great time. Never cooked Thai food or curry before. Taya was so lovely and funny and taught us how to chop correctly and she made it all so easy. Everything was so well organised and we got to eat the food too. So delicious! The flavours are amazing. So much food, had to take some home.”

Chloe “11/10 Experience. Highly Recommend To All! Taya’s Thai class was my first cooking class and it absolutely delivered! Taya is an engaging, energetic and knowledgeable host, making the entire cooking process so much fun. The food was restaurant-quality. Still can’t believe I made that myself.”
