    Superb tastes and herbs
    The experience starts with collecting your own herbs, smelling them, and enjoying their freshness. After you get to pick your own eggs from friendly hens and enjoy the taste of herbs tea in the garden. While you are cooking and eating, the lovely owner shares about her life. She is very polite and nice. Best Thai food we ate in our 22 days at Thailand. Apply a lot of mosquito repellent before you come.
    Thanks so much for attending a class with Lat and so pleased you enjoyed the day together. Wonderful to hear it was also the 'best Thai food' you experienced during your 22 day vacation :) And you cooked it your self - amazing ! Mosquitos are not really an issue here though we have some natural spray onsite as we are surrounded by beautiful lush gardens and forest. Thanks again for taking the time to review your day and welcome back again.

    Must do! An unforgettable experience. Loved everything about this cooking class.
    Absolutely wonderful experience! One of the best, well organised cooking classes I’ve attended. We toured the organic garden. Learned about their sustainable garden - aquaponics and collected fresh produce from the garden to make 4 exquisite dishes. Pad thai, Penang curry, Tom yum and papaya salad. We also learned how to make coconut cream and milk. Really informative and lots of fun. I would highly recommend this experience. 10/10

    Amazing!
    Amazing experience. Lat and Cam are an amazing team and it is evident they are passionate about their plants and food. The team are very welcoming and very well organised. The experience was perfect for our 10 year old daughter (who is an avid cook and gardener) and even her 13 year old brother, who usually does not enjoy cooking! Lat is exceptionally good at making everyone feel welcome and able to engage in what she is showing you. As someone who loves plants, science and food myself, it was heaven! I can’t wait to try to grow our butterfly pea seeds when we get back to the uk! Thank you Lat and Cam and the rest of the team, we had a brilliant day.

    So much more than a cooking school
    Can you post this ! Having been to Koh Samui many times, my daughter and I decided to try something different and attend Lat’s cooking class. We were beyond impressed. Not only is it a cooking school but Lat (the owner) shares her story in starting her garden (not sure that quite describes the scale of what she’s created) and her various techniques. These were all very interesting. Then we moved on to making a butterfly pea drink (we were skeptical but it was delicious) before we started cooking. Over the course of the day we made phad Thai, coconut cream/milk, Tom yum curry paste, Tom yum soup, coconut chicken soup and papaya salad. She made sure to teach us about the produce and different spices as well as their health benefits. We may have learnt some great recipes but it was the welcoming vibe and homey atmosphere that made it a truely enjoyable day! Thank you Lat, Cam and your family!!

    The most amazing experience
    Just wow! This is my second time visiting Island Organics. The first time was so great that I booked out the whole class for 14 of my friends for my birthday. Lat is such a wonderful teacher and entertainer — we were constantly laughing at her jokes. Half of my friends do not usually cook and they had the best time learning how to make basic Thai dishes. There is plenty of help on hand in case you make a mistake. All of our food was delicious and we just had the best time. To top it all off, the team (and Lat’s husband) brought out a birthday cake for me and a lovely gift. Thank you to the amazing team for such a fun morning. A must visit!

    A tasty treat!
    They’ve got a very cool setup and a great story! There’s a lot to learn so thankfully they provide some reference material if you want to learn more. Cooking was fun and we made quite a lot of food. Don’t come hungry but definitely be prepared to leave full!

The whole experience was great, from easy booking and confirmations (incl transportation to / from the farm) with Cam to the tour of the organic garden and cooking class with Lat. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Discovered new things like Butterfly pea ‘tea’ with lots of aromats e.g galengal which was so refreshing. We cooked 4 dishes all of which were delicious. Can’t wait to try out the dishes on family and friends now we are back home. Big thank you to all, including Lat’s support / prep team.

Our favorite thing we did in our entire trip to Koh Samui. The whole experience from start to finish was truly existential. The food is just beyond what one could ever imagine because you get to see its ingredients being grown, learn about the processes, and ultimately chef things up yourself. Our tastebuds went on a magical journey, one that we shall never forget.

A wonderful way to spend a day in Samui.

I had arranged to be picked up from my hotel and the driver was prompt and the van was comfortable and air conditioned.

The cooking class takes place on the farm and it’s amazing to not only see what they have done, but to learn about how they did it.

Lat was the perfect host.she made everyone feel welcome and gave good instruction when teaching the recipes. This is a hands on class with everyone cooking their own dishes. The only shared aspect of the class was when making the curry pastes. If you like your food spiced be sure to leave the seeds in the chilli or even ask for a little extra, the default spice level is mild most likely to cater to many international tastes.

The food was fantastic and does feel like something many would be able to recreate at home.

I can’t recommend Lat and her team enough. A fantastic time was had by all.

I can only recommend this amazing cooking experience with Lat and her great team. It's so great to see how efficiently and organically Lat and her family grow their own vegetables, fruits, herbs, etc. on their farm. The cooking course was very well structured and a lot was explained. Lat’s helping hands kept everything clean all the time. The recipes were super delicious yet quite simple. One of the best classes I had so far!
