Owned and operated by "Master Chef" Sompon Nabnian... you will unlock the secrets of traditional Thai-style cooking. Have you ever wondered why Thai food tastes so different from restaurant to restaurant? The ingredients are the same, so it should taste the same, you would think...not at all! The best Thai food comes from using the freshest ingredients, along with the skilful art of preparation and combining the right ingredients at the right time to create an exceptional dish.Our school offers five fine mouth-watering courses for you to choose from (vegetarian options are available for all dishes in all courses):There is simply no better place to learn about the joys of Thai cooking! « less

I've traveled a lot throughout SE Asia and taken a lot of cooking classes, and this has been the best so far. The demos are professional (there is a separate kitchen for demonstrations) and the teachers are great at guiding you through the execution of each dish. Also you get to make about 6 dishes in a full day course... More

We had the privilege of spending 8 days at the Thai Cookery School in February...4 of those days were spent cooking traditional Thai dishes. The classes are well-organized, move quickly through the demonstrations straight to the wok stations, then into the dining room so we could eat our creations--we made (and ate) 6 dishes each day. The instructor/chefs are well-trained,... More

This has been the best value for money course I have spent in my 3 month tour of Thailand. The pickup from my hotel was exactly on time and the transfer to the schools location was swift. We met Pom the chef who was an excellent English speaker and very funny to boot. We made 7 dishes in all, and... More

It's unfortunate that I never got the opportunity to experience a planned day of cooking at the Thai Cookery School. Our experience setting up a Master Class with them via email was excellent, as was our correspondence with them upon arrival in Chiang Mai. After confirming a 9:30AM pickup at our hotel the following morning, we were very much looking... More

We have thought about doing a cooking class for many years but never had time to fit it in our schedule. This time I read the reviews for this school and booked the "tour of the market"-tour. A fantastic experience where the excellent instructon Pon showed us about the ingridients and told some jokes. This guy is amazing! We went... More

This was an excellent thing to do in Chiangmai. We started with a market trip conducted by our chef for the day. We were all given specific items to purchase which would be used later in our cooking. There was also opportunity to make some purchases of our own. The school itself is set in a beautiful area of Chiangmai.... More

I've taken many, many cooking classes and this class was the perfect balance for demonstrating the regional cuisine to both a novice and more experienced cook. The instructor was knowledgeable and funny so he kept the class moving along at a good pace. There was the perfect amount of participation so that we will remember the techniques when we return....
