Koh Tao visitors who are interested in learning how to cook Thai cuisine should enrol on Ning's Traditional Thai Cooking Course. The course starts with buying ingredients from the local market, after which Ning will teach traditional Thai dishes taught to her by her mother. The cooked dishes will then be eaten in Ning’s tropical garden where tea, coffee and ice cold water are also served – especially if the food is spicy!
