Praparat,
Thanks for a great learning experience.
1. The class was what I expected. I'm very happy with the private one on one lesson.
2. Very clear and patient. Anytime I needed clearification on something, it was provided.
3. Class material were very helpful. Drawing things out on the board help me visualize things better. Recipes were very clear and helpful.
4. The food we made was the Thai food that I have been having a hard time finding in restaurants in the U.S. Now I can make what I like anytime.
5. Eating the results.
6. I also like that all the herbs and vegetables we used were picked from your garden. At some point I'd like to grow some of my own herbs.
Feel free to publish my comments. Thanks so much for a great experience.
If I have any questions, I'll send you an email. I look forward to cooking up some panang curry soon. Cheers.

— Steve



Thank you so much for an unforgettable 3 days culinary experience! It was one of the best cooking classes I have attended. You are very focused and organized. Your recipes are absolutely delicious and easy to prepare. You also did a great job planning the menus each day and utilizing the sauces (and ingredients) with different dishes. Thank you!

Dear Praparat: Once again we want to thank you for your hospitality in hosting the dinner for us and our clients. It was a memorable evening spent at Thai Gourmet House, we all enjoyed a unique spread of authentic Thai food along with a great cooking class. This was arranged in the last minute and we want to thank you for your excellent cooperation, in putting the menu together, and in the presentation of the food and wine. Our corporate guests/clients were very impressed by the quality of the food and the service, and we would definitely recommend your services to other companies in the Phoenix area, or other companies visiting from outside the Phoenix area. Thanks.

Praparat, we can't thank you enough for providing us with such an incredibly delicious dinner! We can't stop talking about the Nam-Sod, the Mieng Kratong and the red and white poached pears. Such an explosion of complex flavors! How wonderful it was for us to experience a catered dinner at our home during the hectic holiday season. Everything was so delicious, we really can't pick a favorite. We recommend your catering services to everyone! Thank you again for an amazing culinary experience, we will definitely be back either for catering or classes.

Praparat was knowledgeable and taught a hands-on class that was catered to us with ingredient lists and great tips. We all learned a great deal from her.

Dear Praparat,
The experience and enthusiasm Nicholas came away with after working with you has been very enlightening. He now has a better grasp and insight into cooking and what can be expected. Nicholas is very excited about what the future may hold for him. Saturday evening while dining at a local restaurant there must have been at least a dozen parents from our two baseball teams listening to him recall his experience with you. Many of them regretted not taking advance of a similar cooking opportunity themselves.
Thank you again for working with Nicholas. It was joy for him...and for us.
Warm regards,

— Peter J. Wierzba



Dear Praparat,
I was just expressing to my husband what a wonderful gift and a wonderful time I had with you yesterday. I enjoyed learning some of the basics in Thai cooking. I plan on taking more classes with you in the future. The education you are able to share with me is a gift for me and my family. Thank you so very much.
p.s. I plan on trying out my new skills this weekend!

— Susan Page
