Great Cooking Class

“Had a wonderful day with Wandee & her team learning how to make Pork with Lemongrass & Chicken Massamam Curry. Wandee was very accommodating & flexible”

Incredible Experience

My sister, my aunt and I all booked in to this class incredibly last minute and Wandee was so accomodating! We were picked up in town and whisked off to the local market.

An Absolute Must!
