We had a great time at The Best Thai Cookery School. We started by going around a food market, having ingredients explained to us. We then had some time to buy some things that we wanted to take home (dried fruit etc) while Ritchie, our teacher, bought everything we needed for the class. The actual school is set in beautiful...

My husband and I chose this cooking school from a friend's recommendation. Permpoon is truly a great teacher and very entertaining too. He just opened his new location in a beautiful rice field. The space where you cook is in an outdoor space with a beautiful view. You even get to pick your ingredients from his garden. It was truly... More

This is a very well thought out class, from visiting the market to buy the ingredients to eating the food at the end we had a great time on this course. The owner took our class, he was very engaging and had a great manner about him with a very infectious laugh! The location is set on a paddy field... More

My friend and I called about the evening class the day of the class. No one else had signed up for the class but they held it just for us. The head chef, Permpoon Nabnian, picked us up from our hotel. (He usually doesn't teach the evening class but the chef who does made other plans since no one had... More

I would thoroughly recommend taking up one of the cookery courses with The Best Thai Cookery School. Having spent an evening cooking four courses, I am now able to cook a Thai meal that suits my palate (not too spicy). Our chef Richie was an excellent teacher. We were picked up by minibus and then taken to the local market... More

We researched on trip advisor before visiting Chiang Mai, we booked the full day course. From the outset it was interesting and entertaining. From collection at our hotel to return at the end of the day we had a great time. Looking forward to cooking Thai meals from the cookery book supplied. Thanks to Richie our instructor for the day.

Having paid for our cookery class at best Thai we didn't know to what extent it would be delivered. Firstly, you get taken to the market to see exactly where you're ingredients are coming from and why it is you use that ingredients. Then, you get driven to a local home where you have a large kitchen and some very... More

Collected by mini van and taken to local market for tour, Instructor entertaining and knowledgeable about produce and ingredients. We were then taken to the school about 20 minutes outside of the city, the school is in a small residential village, and has extensive... More
