"Darien and Phensri, Thank you for a wonderful night of cooking!  You are masters of entertainment!" - On site NJ cooking party"

 "I enjoyed your Thai cooking class.  You are very informative and explained the ingredients and cooking techniques thoroughly.  You are very friendly and made me feel as though we have known each other for years.  I now have the confidence to cook authentic Thai cuisine.  Thank you so very much.“

"Thank you for a great evening!  It was a pleasure to meet you both.  Phensri, you are a marvelous Thai chef.  The dishes you demonstrated and assisted us in cooking were delicious and much easier to prepare than I had expected.  Your magic sauce made the process so simplistic yet authentic.  I look forward to participating in another one of your cooking classes again.  It was nice sitting down at the table talking with you and Darien while enjoying the fruit of our labor.“

“I truly enjoyed cooking with Phensri.  She is an excellent teacher and her step by step instructions made what I thought would be impossible, possible!  With her instruction, I was able to prepare some amazingly delicious Thai food!”

"The Class was great!  I've purchased my rice cooker yesterday and I've packed my food for the day.  I think you may have helped me with my weight loss program.  I made vegetable fried rice last night.  Not quite as good as yours, Phensri, but almost. Thanks so much.  I will be telling everybody! "
