  Our Concept 

In our cooking classes Pat teaches up to 6 persons.

(Exception: when a bigger group books a private course.)


Our courses are independent sessions which last about 4 hours. In each session we show three different Thai dishes, each of which you learn to cook by yourself.

You work in small groups (with 2-4 people) under Pat's supervision. Our normal class language is German, but for you Pat makes an exception and teaches both in German and English. And you get the recipes in English, of course.

Private Courses

You may also book a Private Course for a closed group of people (max. 12 persons) - on your chosen day and time, Sundays included. If you wish to do that, please contact us well in advance!

This course procedure is as follows:

  • After arrival you will be treated with a typical Thai appetizer. This dish is meant to be simply enjoyed, not learned. Mineral water and beer are yours, too.

  • When you are ready, Pat explains the various ingredients we use and shows you how to prepare them. Then it is your turn: You follow the samples and prepare the ingredients for your group.

  • Next Pat will demonstrate how to cook the three courses. After tasting them it is again your turn:

  • Each group cooks the three dishes. Which can turn to be a lot of fun (see picture). Whatever: We stand by and support you so that nothing goes wrong. If you have questions when you practice at home what you learned in the class, just give us a call. We'll be glad to answer them!

  • When everything is done, it is time to eat, drink, exchange ideas - and enjoy! In between we spoil you with a dessert of fresh exotic fruits.

Any questions?

For example, why our cooking courses cost more than a 5 course menu in a good restaurant? Or where you can buy all the exotic ingredients? - If our FAQ section does not give you a satisfying answer, contact us, please!

  Our Course Venues  

If you prefer to cook yourself instead of just watching somebody else doing it, you have chosen the right website and place: In our regular cooking courses at Felix Weber's home (Ackerstrasse 5, 8704 Herrliberg) our max. capacity is 6 persons (usually we do classes with 2-4 students). So you are guaranteed to get enough practice.

You eat in the winter garden, from where you can see the far left shore of lake Zurich.

We make exceptions, though:
