Cooking schools are big business in Chang Mai meaning high volume. We checked and decided to try this one as it promised smaller class sizes and was located in the countryside. First thing is manage your expectations. The majority of this schools aims for a fun day out with some information on Thai cookery. This is not a high profile... More

Took the evening class with my boyfriend and had an excellent time. The instructor was so friendly and helpful. It is nice that his English is so good because he is able to explain a lot when he takes you to the market to buy ingredients.. We were able to ask a ton of questions! The setting was beautiful. We... More

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
