This was the highlight of our trip to Samui. Chef Lat and Cameron are awesome and very friendly. You’ll cook authentic Thai recipes with ingredients from their farm. Chef Lat guides you as you cook with simple steps. Do not miss it!

Yes, you get to eat and cook a ton of food, but you also get to see the aquaponics farm created by this awesome family. Really enjoyed this. Came home with a Thai wok that I use all the time, too.
