What you'll do

Rock the Wok organizes exclusively private Cooking Classes, so our team can fully concentrate on you. We offer more than 30 different Thai dishes to choose from. You cook, but we assist you and comment, as most of the dishes have their own story. Some of them can still be prepared after old recipes from the Kingdom of Siam and are called “Royal Thai Cuisine.” We use quality and sustainable produce (no msg or palm oil) and we will give you during the class not only our knowledge, but also show you how the dishes can be arranged beautifully. We'll start with a local Thai market tour and a detailed herb & spice lecture, so you know what grows in Thailand and how to you use it. Try exotic fruits and popular Thai sweets, which are completely different from the West. We will do a bit of vegetable carving for a nice presentation of the cooked dishes. I will teach you how to make coconut milk from scratch in the traditional way. We'll do some simple vegetable carvings and you learn how Thai women used to make curry paste in the old days. You cook 4 of your favorite dishes and can enjoy them afterwards.

I founded Rock the Wok on the island of Koh Samui to stand out from other cooking classes, because I belief that a great Thai Cooking Experience should not only consist of learning about Thai vegetables, herbs and spices and teach you how to cook Thai food, but also take you back in history and educate you about Thai food culture and the old Thai Ways of Life.
I’ve been living in Thailand for over a decade and have learned during this time everything about the origin and making of Thai food.

Мастер класс организован очень удачно. Во-первых, это индивидуально(кроме вас никого нет, мы ходили с мужем вдвоём). Можно заранее выбрать 4 блюда, которые именно вы хотите приготовить. Во-вторых, очень понравилось посещение рынка вместе с Сандрой, узнали очень много нового, вся эта огромная куча зелени и овощей перестала казаться чуждой и непонятной. Готовили у Сандры, потому что наша кухонька была совсем крошечной, и я очень довольна. У неё просторная кухня на открытом воздухе, все замечательно и профессионально организовано! Очень понравилась вводная часть про разные соусы, историю тайской кухни, фрукты, сладости(многие из которых Сандра дала нам попробовать). Готовка проходила легко и ненапряженно, вроде готовишь сам, но Сандра все показывает и обьясняет. Честно говоря, блюда получились намного вкуснее, чем во всех кафе, в которых мы пробовали. Возможно потому, что Сандра немного(!) адаптировала вкусы под европейский манер(кстати, она учитывает ваши пожелания по остроте/соли/сладости и т.д) Сама Сандра очень приятная, все ведётся на английском, но достаточно понятно, даже если вы знаете его совсем немного. В общем очень советуем!

We had a great time doing this class and the presentation of the food on the table after we finished cooking was fabulous.

We absolutely loved the experience. Not only did we learn how to cook some of our favorite Thai dishes, but we had a great introductory session on Thai cuisine, it’s history and ingredients. Sandra was amazing. Very knowledgeable, and a great person to spend the day with. Highly recommended !!

I highly recommend Sandra's class. It's indeed a rare cooking class. Sandra is so knowledgeable and so prepared for the class that we felt that we knew nothing about Thai food before our class. Amazing! Amazing! Amazing!
