ISSAYA Cooking Studio Reviews

So you'll maybe not be taught by Chef Ian Kittichai - but we were! It was booked last minute and happened to be the one day of the month that he was teaching at his Issaya Cooking Studio. The... more »
We took a morning cooking class there, and it was just two people: me, and my partner. The food was great, the cook spoke proper english, yet the instructor looked bored most of the time and never a single time commented on what we were doing, how we did it, and how we composed anything. It was just a "please look at how i prepare it, and replicate". We had to actively ask questions for anything, and never spontaneously received suggestions. Since we were the only two attendees, i find this quite disappointing, considering we have even announced beforehand that we intend to buy the book (and possibly give them a bonus). Paid 6208 baht, but was left a bit sour because i could have watched a video and come away exactly as smart. Often questions like "We don't have this kind of ingredient in europe; what are good substitutes" were answered with "i don't know". So all in all, disappointing.
Just did the Issaya recipes cooking class and I felt it was a great experience as it was just me and my friend which made it very intimate and gave us the chance to ask many questions. I have lived in Thailand for almost 5 years and I was still happy as I learned many modern techniques and/or tricks I did not learn in all the other cooking classes I took. Ingredients are top-notch and the premises are beautiful. Highly recommended!
