SowAfter 10 years chefing in Thailands 5 star resteraunts, Sow indulged her passion for food and set up her cooking school in Aonang in 2001. It's even recommended in the lonely planet although I wouldn't hold it against her. I took her course and ate so much I could hardly move. Now writing it all up I feel the need for a 'refresher' course, just thinking about it makes me hungry....

Cooking Course Details

The course is a bargain. For 1,000 Baht you could not buy a meal like this. The 1,000 Baht includes pick up from Ao Nang beach at 8.30am or 1.00pm. If you are staying in Railay, then you will have to make your own way to Ao Nang beach for pick up at these times. From Railay to Ao Nang beach it is a 15 minute boat ride. They are closed on Sundays. Try not to eat too much before hand, as the idea of the course is to eat what you make...
