Cooking with Poo and Friends
For more than 5 years now Khun Poo’s cooking school has been running in Klong Toey for tourists as well as local residents. She represents a remarkable model of success and positivity in an often stark and complex landscape of poverty and hardship and has trained up a stellar team of fellow residents.
From modest beginnings in the front room of Khun Poo’s house (with no English skills) the initiative has grown into a very successful cooking school. Khun Poo and her growing team have since mastered the English language and nowadays the team can accommodate up to 12 students, six days a week.
Join one of our cooking classes for a real grass roots experience where you learn to master a couple of Thai dishes while encountering life within the Klong Toey community. After pick up at 8:30 am in front of Emporium Suites, we take you to the Klong Toey wet market. There you learn about the local Thai produce, much of which you will use and taste afterwards in your cooking class at our small cooking school in the slum.
