Anyone can learn how to make delicious Thai food!
We host cooking classes in North Saanich, only minutes from Victoria. Join Kallayanee, a native of Thailand, as she guides you through a choice of 21 lessons featuring some of Thailand’s most popular dishes at her North Saanich home, near Sidney, and only minutes from Victoria.
You’ll learn the Thai way through hands-on experience and careful, step-by-step instruction. And no class is a prerequisite for any other class, so you can take classes in whatever order you like. Each class lasts about three hours. First you learn how to prepare and cook the food — then you get to eat it with other enthusiastic classmates!
Each cooking class is a feast to be enjoyed by all students
For each class, you’ll learn how to prepare and cook a feast of authentic Thai dishes, including noodles, curry dishes, spring rolls, seafood soups, spicy salads and much, much more. Afterwards, you get to eat and enjoy the delicious food prepared during class. You will also receive printed recipes and a list of ingredients required — both staples and special ingredients — available at many local grocery stores and Victoria’s Chinatown.
No cooking class is a prerequisite for any other
So you can take as many, or as few, classes as you wish! Satisfaction guaranteed!

We’re Proud of our High Rating!
This review came as something of a surprise to us. We had no idea we were being reviewed and rated. But we were certainly pleased to find that SALT loved us so much! You can check out the Salt website and find our review on page 17.
When Seaside Magazine Came to Visit
Deb’s Day Out, with Deborah Rogers
“Eating all the dishes, along with a delicate aromatic jasmine rice with mango for dessert, was both pleasure and pain! It was delightful to sit and share the meal with others…I enjoyed hearing their stories as I tried to squeeze in just a few more mouthfuls. Come to the class with an appetite is my advice. Be prepared to ask questions. Be adventurous as you sample the food. Get out of your rut!”
Deb came to visit us recently for her regular feature column
Our Weekends on the Flavour Trail
Meeting and Greeting Food Fans from Everywhere!
We are proud to have been included in Flavour Trails, a wonderful community event that celebrates food producers and purveyors once every year in North Saanich. Sadly, we were not able to participate in our favourite festival during Summer 2020 or 2021 because of the Covid pandemic.
The summer before, in 2019, dozens of people came to visit us on the Flavour Trail in North Saanich. We even met many of our neighbours who came to call and get to know us a little better. We also met many folks from much farther away — around the country and around the world — who came for a unique experience of this rural island community.
Happily, Flavour Trails opened again in 2022 and, once again, we met dozens of people who came to visit and enjoy the free samples of our food that we offered.
We are definitely looking forward hopefully to meeting more friends, neighbours and visitors when Flavour Trails re-opens for summer 2023!
Our Students Love us Too!
